Revolutionary Innovations in Supply Chain and Logistics Reduce the Disruptions and Increase the Efficiencies


How is artificial intelligence (AI) reshaping how goods are managed and delivered in supply chain and logistics? Innovations in drone technology and AI-driven safety protocols are paving new paths for efficiency and security in logistics solutions. These advancements reflect a broader movement towards automation and resilience in business operations to enhance efficiency amidst global disruptions. As this transformation unfolds, the question arises: What does the future hold for supply chains in this era of technological evolution?

Craig Austin, an Associate Teaching Professor at Florida International University, sheds light on the innovations leading the supply chain and logistics revolution. His expertise offers a compelling exploration of AI’s transformative impact on logistics, inviting a deeper understanding of its role in shaping the future.

Craig’s Thoughts:

“Some of you may be wondering what’s going on, what are the innovations going on in supply chains and logistics more recently. There’s now a range of companies using AI and artificial intelligence to expand and beef up the capabilities of their drones.

Besides Amazon, Wing also, which is owned by Alphabet, which owns Google, are letting their devices pick the best place to leave a package. DroneUp has just got approval to manage their drones beyond the line of sight, which means that we’re a step closer to getting packages via drone. There’s also a company called Motive that alerts and monitors the behavior of drivers on the road to get them to correct it so that drivers are driving more safely. This is all in the environment of artificial intelligence, where you may not be aware that 21% of warehouses are run by robots or robot automation. The reason is because robots can pick and pack orders faster and more accurately than humans. They move heavy objects, and they also detect defects in the merchandise much quicker.

And so, lest you think that humans are being moved out, sometimes these robots wander off the lines, so to speak, where they have to be corralled or lassoed back into place so that they can continue their chores. And all of these GE appliances use these robots, and they have to make these corrective measures as well. This is all in the environment. Businesses are trying to be more resilient and more agile to deal with the disruptions that are going on in the world.”
