Artificial Intelligence has impacted the logistics industry in many ways. While there is a long road ahead to have this become more advanced they are still very popular in supply chain. The biggest purpose of implementing AI is too be more time efficient and hopefully cut down on certain costs. AI is used in today's society more than people realize. It is becoming second nature using these devices, such as, Alexa, Google Home, and Siri.
As previously discussed one AI completely changes warehouse operations. When using this is creates a better experience for clients. Warehouse automation is to help out the warehouse workers in order to get faster and more accurate results. Since the demand of outsourcing fulfillment is increasing, companies have to be on top of technology advancements. Logistics’ companies are using robotics help pick and pack in the warehouse.
Artificial Intelligence has also impacted the transportation of goods. There would be no stops and the trucks would be driving 24/7. With smoother delivery and pickup times this could create more demand. This also saves time and money for companies. AI is creating different job opportunities.
The whole idea of using artificial intelligence is to make jobs easier and to smooth everyday operations for all job descriptions. Maybe with machines recognizing everyday tasks, companies would be able to apply things like Siri or Alexa into play. Another concept that will grow tremendously in the matter of a couple years is robotics.
There are many ways on how AI can impact all industries. According to a Forbes Insight survey states, “ that expected benefits from advanced technologies include enhanced productivity, better speed/response times and the ability to see end-to-end across the value chain. Additional benefits include improved accuracy in deliveries, higher quality at lower cost and the ability to better anticipate customer needs.” Hopefully this exceeds all companies expectations.
