How Intelligent Logistics Is Transforming the ‘Final Foot’ and Beyond

 

Data is driving the modern world, every industry the world over is looking for ways to implement innovative technologies and automation to solve its biggest challenges.

Retail is no different – in fact, it might be the industry best poised to take advantage of a variety of technologies in order to meet evolving and accelerating consumer expectations.

One key to doing just that is the field of intelligent logistics. But what is intelligent logistics, and how can organizations implement this new-age strategy for keeping pace with a rapidly advancing world?

To find out, host Hilary Kennedy welcomed Ned Hill, CEO of Position Imaging, to the first episode of the Intelligent Logistics podcast.

Position Imaging is a leader in innovative tracking technologies, such as artificial intelligence and computer vision. These technologies have applications up and down the supply chain, from manufacturing to last-mile delivery or retail storefronts.

There are many examples of intelligent logistics impacting the way our society moves goods for the better, though one in particular is ripe for innovation. Position imaging is doing incredible work in the “final foot,” leveraging solutions such as its Smart Package Rooms to help people engage in simple, automated, contactless and reliable pickup.

“You think about the logic of sending a huge vehicle all the way to the final destination – it doesn’t make sense anymore,” Hill said. “As these technologies evolve, it is improving the efficiencies of these processes. Final foot is a good example. … I would rather outsource that labor to the customer, who wants a quick and easy transaction as opposed to going in and waiting for and relying on a staff.”
