Evidence of automated progression surfaced last year with promises for innovative implementation and efficiency in the coming months. What does this mean for the future of your supply chain? Faster quotes, transparent start to end tracking, expedited delivery times, and fewer logistical errors.
Paper trail has notoriously branded the air freight industry as of late, but prepare to see this term quickly replaced with updated nuances including paperless and automation. The efficient one-eighty is due primarily to an incessant need for hyper efficiency and transparency on a global level. This evolution is coming at an opportune time. A time when air freight shipments are in particular need of increased transaction times, especially when expedited cargo is on the dock. The lag in digital implementation is becoming apparent. Ineffective manual processes are the central cause for deflated revenue in a time where optimization and new streams of cash flow are on the rise.
The economic complexities that are quickly becoming standard, are essentially making it necessary for supply chain management companies and logistics providers to rethink and reassess how technology can immediately benefit and grow their existing business. This industry must abandon previous assumptions regarding comprehension, processing, and investing in information technology.
Digital investments are visibly on the rise as the likes of hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent on automated software implementation industry wide. While eCommerce has been a key player, accelerated efficiency has been another. The sheer need for air freight logistics to coincide with a certain fluidity in the online lives of consumers generates an insurmountable need for digitalization.
Inaccurate quoting and varying rating systems are obvious threats to the integrity of the industry as it relates to shipping prices. Full visibility provided by digitized processes allows for consistent rate calculation, which in turn makes for a happier client. The inconsistency observed in the industry today is a direct correlation with the lack of automated structures. This causes customer frustration and adds to overall revenue loss.
