Logistics industry start up ""

The logistics industry and transportation industries are highly influenced by technological innovations. Technological innovation continues to evolve traditional logistical operations, driving the logistics and transportation industry to adopt the latest technological trends.

Technological trends in Logistics indusrty in 2022.

E-commerce is the face of every growing successful and capitalized business. Every successful business is now providing delivery services to the customer. 

According to CBInsights, investors have been increasing their participation since 2012 in this sector. CBInsights also estimated the maximum revenue belonging to the organization that uses software programs to enhance the efficiency of its logistics and supply chain operations. Studies suggest that investors have woken up to the virtues of logistics startups and the funding has almost doubled in the logistics tech startup since last year.

Here let’s see the current issues faced by the logistics sector, which as a logistic startup, your organization can use to benefit your business by finding software solutions, or by creating a mobile app for such problems.

1. Empty returning trucks-

An on-demand application like Uber X is an example of an app platform that includes the service provider, service specialist, and customers who need services for deliveries or doorstep services. Customers can get the required service experts from this app. 

The organization that transports goods only by trucks suffers losses as most of the trucks have to return empty after delivering goods, which is a waste of resources. This space is sometimes utilized by the middle agents for a few orders but their commissions cover a large share of the profit. Dispatch tracking software for trucking allows logistics companies and truckers to get orders from companies that need to transport their goods without the interference of any agents. The service providers or the logistics app charges fees for each order, which is much cheaper than the agent’s commission.

2. Storage space optimization

The growth of e-commerce, and demand-on delivery service has encouraged warehouse space optimization. The warehouse’s nonavailability and growing rents are the influencing factors for the solution for optimizing the warehouse or storage space optimization.

3. Cloud technology application

The application of cloud technology to the logistics and supply chain operations enhances the efficiency of the logistics operation in many ways

1)Cloud technology enables easy labor distribution in the logistics supply chain.

2)Cloud applications are less expensive, which reduces risk and enables businesses to try new applications with lower expenses.

3) Cloud application also allows usage all over the world even if the facilities are located in faraway places.

4)Cloud application improves customer satisfaction and reduces wastage of resources by automating key operations and providing real-time visibility to the transporters and the customers.
