FreightTech: The future of logistics

New digital technologies and disruptive ideas are shaking up the logistics industry – incumbents need to adapt fast

Traditional logistics players have so far been slow to adapt to the FreightTech revolution, allowing newer, disruptive players to take a lead. In this study, we look at the challenges holding incumbents back – and outline what they can do to regain market dominance.

For decades, the logistics value chain has remained the same. An order is received by a freight forwarder, the package is picked up, warehoused, transported, warehoused again and finally delivered to the receiver. But in the past few years, new technologies and ideas in logistics – collectively known as FreightTech – have been shaking up this well-trodden path. In fact, in the next 2 to 5 years, FreightTech applications are expected to disrupt every step of the traditional value chain.

Increasingly savvy Christmas shoppers are looking to use the channels that best suit their budget and lifestyle. Consequently, findings from a new JDA/Centiro study have revealed that consumers will quickly take their custom elsewhere if faced with stock outs and unsuitable delivery times.

- Overall, Click & Collect issues have decreased slightly compared with previous year.
- Of those consumers who experienced issues, over 1 in 5 consumers received a damaged item.
- Click & Collect usage plateaus, but the gap narrows between cost and convenience.

3D printing and the future of Supply Chains
 

DHL released its latest DHL Trend Report today - 3D Printing and the Future of Supply Chains. DHL has been testing a variety of both 3D printing hardware and techniques for several years and has identified applications that have potential to redefine manufacturing and supply chain strategies. While the 3D printing market is estimated to grow between US$180 billion and US$490 billion by 20251, the report however finds it will not become a substitute for mass-production but a complementary process.

RESEARCH: JDA & WMG, University of Warwick Study Reveals Most European Manufacturers
 

European manufacturers are failing to effectively use data and analytics when it comes to supply chain planning and segmentation, according to a new report from JDA Software Group, Inc., and WMG, at the University of Warwick. The ‘Supply Chain Segmentation: A Window of Opportunity for European Manufacturing’ report surveyed 100 manufacturing organisations across Europe to benchmark their supply chain segmentation practices. The report revealed that only 18 per cent of respondents considered historic, present and future data in the supply chain planning process, while only 39 per cent of respondents stated that their segmentation models were data-driven. In fact, nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of organisations stated they simply utilise ‘rules of thumb’ over any kind of data-driven methodology.
