Across Logistics: July Issue

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.

Welcome to the July Issue of “Across Logistics” news release, where we are discussing the latest innovation examples in the logistics sector and looking forward to the bright future.

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” – Isoroku Yamamoto


 

This famous quote expressed by late Japanese General Yamamoto right after the Pearl Harbor attack is a great analogy to explain the Logistics industry today. More than 70 years later the fear of having awakened a sleeping giant is evident for executives inside incumbent transport companies.

Dear Readers,

On March 18th 2013, we received our initial investment and on that date the idea of Transmetrics turned into a real company. Since then we have grown our dedicated team to almost 20 highly-skilled professionals. We have partnered with several companies from the industry to verify our idea which have resulted in a number of proofs of concept (PoC) and implementations with leading cargo transport companies. We have received several acknowledgements of success by Forbes, Pioneers Festival, EIT ICT Labs Startup Activation and several other organizations. After spending 4 years building the product, completing PoCs and implementing our solution in a number of logistics companies we have been constantly seeking new ways of improving and optimizing efficiency in the industry. We have learned and discovered a lot. However, there is still a lot more to learn and discover, which we would be happy to do together with you, dear readers.
