Benchmarking innovation with ease
A Transportation Management System (TMS) can take many forms. It could be a standalone product, or a component of a broader supply chain management. Sumit Sharma, Co-Founder, GoBolt, talks about how technology is bringing in ease.
ATMS is technology for managing the part of the supply chain that puts commodities in motion. It helps companies move increasing adoption, a trend that started a couple of years back in the Western World and is rapidly catching up in India.
These new TMS will encompass and transparent information digitisation of data, systems enhance sharing, shipment costs while boosting equipment and facility productivity.
A fully automated and lean supply chain can help reduce load sizes and stocks by leveraging smart distribution technologies and smaller AVs. As per the current studies and research, on-highway trucks will likely be the first vehicles to feature the full technology on public roads, not any time before 2040. Although, its prototypes already exist, and companies are currently developing the software algorithms needed to handle complex driving situations.
Trains provide an excellent way of moving plenty of goods across the country, but it is too limited. If transport drones could be deployed from a train to deliver packages as they approach certain destinations, so as to send all of a manufacturer’s products by train across the country and have them delivered without requiring any additional time before the train reaches the destination. How is the use of robots in warehouses, loading, unloading, and delivery changing the industry?
We are entering a point in time when robots will become more visible and impact our lives more directly; in our stores, in our offices, and in our homes. They are soon to enter the world of logistics, here in India as the interest for such services are significantly increasing. One of the biggest challenges facing the logistics industry today is labour availability. It’s not easy for companies around the world to find enough highquality employees to move goods from suppliers to customers. Two competing factors are making this especially difficult; the first is an increasing need for more logistics workers and this is being driven by the e-commerce revolution and its need for more parcel shipments; the second is a decline in the available workforce that is appropriately skilled and ready to be absorbed in the industry. Finding enough skilled labour for the logistics industry could become extremely difficult or even impossible. The solution to this is supplementing workers with collaborative robots, effectively allowing to do more tasks while improving productivity. What is the impact of Internet of Things (IOT) in logistics?
The usage of Internet of Things (IoT) in logistics can help with - the supply chains operating faster, cheaper and better to meet customer expectations. The IoT revolution will allow us to enhance those solutions by intelligently connecting people, processes, data, and things via devices and sensors, as id like a SCM 2.0 automation of the manufacturing process to improved visibility within the warehouse. Many businesses have already discovered the advantages of using mobile technologies; however, However, with visibility into personnel, equipment and transactions, enterprises can better support peak operations in real time – bettering operational efficiency and performance.
