The main purpose of applying AI in the logistics industry is to reduce time-consuming actions and save money.

Demand Prediction

There is a significant amount of coordination and planning among suppliers, customers, and different departments in logistics companies. Using AI, we can use real-time data, which will improve accuracy in demand prediction. It will help manufacturers optimize the number of dispatched vehicles and will reduce operational costs.

Optimization of Sales and Marketing

AI offers diverse aspects for sales and marketing. Some examples include providing an analysis of customer behavior and using predictive analytics to better understand what a company’s customers are likely to do next. Freight forwarders can monitor market changes closely, so AI helps them stay ahead of the competition and make data-driven decisions.

Real-time Decision Making

Finding the best carriers, transporters, and optimization routes at a competitive cost is an important and time-consuming task. However, using AI, freight forwarders can instantly utilize thousands of datasets to suggest the most cost-efficient carrier and route.

Automated Offices

  • Scheduling and tracking
  • Report generation
  • Email processing

A Better Customer Experience
