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.
