Technology is Changing the Future
Interestingly enough, the Logistics Industry is one of the most dynamic industries in the world yet seemingly one of the late comers into the digital, data and technological space. However, that seems to be changing as logistics companies around the world are beginning to embrace the digital revolution and seem on track to consolidate their digital requirements.
Companies are implementing technology-based changes in essential logistics functions across various internal processes covering supply chain procurement, sales & operational planning and customer services.
These new logistics functions seem to fit hand-in-hand with the new smart phone apps and GPS tracking capabilities which are removing the boundaries between the manufacturing plant, its suppliers and the routing and scheduling of cargo movement.
The Global Logistics & Transportation Market is worth $700 Billion USD in 2017 and it is estimated to grow to $950 Billion USD by 2023 with a CAGR of 3.49% between 2017 and 2023. Logistics is generally the detailed organization and implementation of a complex operation.
It refers to the movement of goods and information between the provider and the receiver and also it is the management of the flow of things between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations.
Logistics services: This subsector includes inbound and outbound transportation management, fleet management, warehousing, materials handling, order fulfillment, logistics network design, inventory management, supply and demand planning, third-party logistics management, and other support services.
