Innovation leads the progress. It has become an unstoppable process. And the only way to keep up with this process, when you are a part of a highly complex industry as logistics, is to innovate yourself. Companies that are waiting for innovation and just planning to implement some current trends will stay behind the companies who are investing in implementation at this exact moment. If DHL invests into Augmented Reality systems for warehouses and industry forecasts show that pilotless cargo planes and anticipatory logistics will be common practices in several years, why other logistics companies are still asking “Are we ready for this?” In our opinion, it is too late to ask such questions and it is the right time to test and invest in new technologies.

“Across Logistics” Innovation News Release: 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 legislation 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.
