While we are almost ready to step into the new year, 2017 still has some aces in the sleeve for the logistics industry. This year, in a nutshell, was a year of non-logistics players entering the industry through innovations. For example, in May Uber officially announced the launch of Uber Freight to tackle the logistics market, Alphabet’s autonomous car unit Waymo brought the power of driverless driving to trucks and just this month Tesla presented its Semi Truck with specs that are beyond industry’s standard. The only way for the industry players to respond to such rivalry is to invest time and resources in new technologies like UPS did while exploring the blockchain. The shift in logistics is happening. The question is, as a logistics player, are you doing anything about it? As one famous Chinese proverb says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

At Transmetrics, we believe that we live in the exciting times when digital disruption is happening in many industries including logistics. We are about to transfer the responsibility of driving to an autopilot powered by Artificial Intelligence in our cars and we are starting to get shipments right to our backyards with drones. As consumers, we already expect free same-day shipping without even thinking about the complexity of delivering goods from the manufacturer to our doorstep. And as a society which lives in the 21st century, we have a right to demand that. Governments and companies have to work closely to develop the legislations and strategies in order to address increased consumer demands by moving towards the renewable energy sources, creating new ways of delivering goods and to achieving seamless collaboration between humans and technologies. As primary users of the logistics services, our society has to embrace the innovations.
