The prospects for artificial intelligence, digitalization of the supply chain as well as the vision of the future of delivery logistics are at the moment are beginning to take shape.
Analysts assert that the future will be more agile and asset-light in relation to today’s asset-intensive operations .As a matter of fact, the focus on delivery logistics is with the passage of time shifting toward customer data. It is also shifting along other lines such as operational flexibility, connectivity, market entry and operational flexibility. There is also great need to guard against the hungry tech disruptors.
As a matter of fact, one of the biggest enablers of these changes will be development of “meta-platforms.”These are of course the massively, deep, and intelligent computing environments that offer most of the logistics providers the remarkable capabilities. Some of these include the capability interact with the rapidly changing operating systems apps and software.
Above all, it will be possible for most of the companies to offer services to their wide array of customers seamlessly across the company boundaries. This will be quite similar to what they have always done across the boundaries of the country.
It goes without saying that indeed these meta-platforms won’t probably be visible to the end customers in a direct way. On the contrary, they will be the ones steering the logistics flow of products on the operations side. They will also at the same time be seeing to it that the operations are well connected to the sales side .This is of course the exact point where the customer preference data resides.
Data is driving processes in a major way. This is transforming the Meta-platforms making them the center-stage for the future delivery logistics systems.
