Chit Chat: Logistic Technology Trends 2017

Logistics and transportation continue to rapidly evolve. We’re facing an era of Internet. Logistics and transportation companies are using advanced technologies to provide reliable and faster deliveries for their customers. Let’s take a look at some of the future trends we’re excited about for the year ahead, and beyond.

The Internet of Things
The Internet of Things will continue to play an exciting role in modern day logistics. Expect IoT to play a more important role in reducing waste, saving money and increasing delivery speeds. There is talk of IoT working with RFID and AIDC too. This communication will help to spot areas of weakness that require work to meet the demands of the customer.

Bluetooth will be found more in logistics. Bluetooth can be used to improve the tracking of shipments and work to ensure accuracy in logistics. Expect to see Bluetooth devices being used throughout the logistics process.

Amazon is one company that is already working with robots alongside human workers in warehouses. Automation is becoming more reliable and cheaper and they provide companies with a way of reducing costs, improving accuracy and improving speed.

Electronic Logging
Electronic logging devices help logistic providers stay competitive. The devices log the driving hours and helps companies make and record accurate records.

Autonomous Vehicles
Self-driving vehicles are being tested and continue to be worked on my car makers. Driverless trucks will help to improve and streamline services. This may not appear this year, but work continues to be done and self-driving vehicles is an area worth keeping an eye on.
