Logistics 4.0 & Transportation
More efficient, more effective, future-proof: New paths to successful customer centricity with end-to-end networking and digitalization.
The aim is to remain flexible with the help of automation, digitalization and networking so as to be prepared for all eventualities, including the unforeseeable.
Success factors for transportation and logistics range from reducing transportation costs to addressing the pandemic-related driver shortage.
As in many industries, data is considered key to all optimization processes in logistics management. Data analyses offer enormous potential for companies, especially when it comes to planning transport routes and distributing orders automatically. Shorter travel times, fewer empty runs, lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions. Data-based route planning systems can significantly reduce overall transportation costs. This is an important factor for future-proof operations, especially in the face of rising energy and fuel prices.
In Germany alone, there is a shortage of over 80,000 drivers. The use of optimization software can provide the solution here as well. Increased effectiveness means that you need fewer vehicles and fewer personnel for the same orders. Realistic and feasible route planning reduces stress and overtime for drivers. This increases satisfaction and long-term loyalty to the company.
Increased sustainability on all routes
The increasing demand for last-mile delivery can be met by all-electric vehicles (BEVs). Sustainability is further strengthened when green electricity is used to produce green hydrogen. This makes hydrogen vehicles economically attractive and reduces the overall costs of carriers – even for long distances.
At the same time, environmentally friendly transport systems are increasingly becoming an important selection criterion when awarding contracts. In this context, the potential for further consolidation can create correspondingly high synergies and economies of scale.
Recalculating your future route
From modern warehouse management systems to cloud-based solutions and blockchain technology: Process digitalization and automation are essential for Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0. But investing in the necessary digitalization and decarbonization pays off for the majority of companies in the long run.
