Technology has crept into nearly every aspect of our lives. Today, you can see your developing child’s facial expressions before he or she is even born with 3D ultrasound. You can answer virtually any trivia question at the kitchen table and track your heart rate, the number of steps you’ve taken and calories you’ve consumed with your smart phone or watch. With the latest ecommerce, tracking and transportation and delivery technology, you can order, pay for and follow the delivery of everything from pizza to clothing to furniture with a few clicks on a computer or taps on a smartphone screen. And you can even watch the delivery person come to your front door through remote digital monitoring technology while you are sitting at your desk at work.
Operations, visibility improved with transportation and delivery software
The supply chain has never been more visible or more convenient for the consumer or end user to monitor and access. Retailers, suppliers and businesses of all kinds must continually adapt to advances in technology and changes in consumer habits and expectations.
With the boom in ecommerce and online retailers, the courier and logistics industry is investing more in technologies and computer-related services to boost efficiency to meet the growing demand for parcel services.
Tracking and delivery technology, warehouse management technology, transportation management systems and fleet management solutions can benefit your business by providing greater flexibility, insight and on-demand understanding for execution of effective logistics operations. These innovations are streamlining operations inside manufacturing plants, warehousing and distribution centers and transportation service vehicles on the road, vastly improving how accurately couriers can predict arrival times as well as the speed packages are delivered to the end user.
