Logistics Industry Moves Forward
At the beginning of the 20th century, Henry Ford changed transportation and the world. He didn’t set his sights on giving us a faster horse. He left the horse behind and built the industry a practical, reliable and affordable car. That car would also advance our logistics industry into the future.
As CEO and Founder of Teknowlogi, I also feel a kinship with Henry Ford. Our logistics industry is also at a precipice. Competing in today’s 24/7/365 on-demand marketplace is becoming harder. Especially if you are also using current legacy systems. Logistics companies and shippers are also in need of smarter technology. That also includes both asset and non-asset companies. That way they can improve operations and reduce costs.
The role and capabilities of transportation management systems (TMS) have grown stale. Logistics networks and operations have become more dynamic and complex. Companies also continue to manage their logistics operations with outdated systems. Or worse, with manual spreadsheets. Also, they will find it difficult to keep up with their customer and partner requirements. Also, they intend to save money and provide better services. They also do this while trying to meet their own cost and business growth objectives.
We have more than 14 years of consulting and technology experience. Particularly in the transportation industry. I also learned about the specific challenges and frustrations so many logistics professionals face. We here at Teknowlogi want to change that!
The Teknowlogi blog is here. We also want to delve deeper than product features and functions. We want to provide insight on how to transform your logistics company. to survive―and thrive―in today’s global marketplace.
In this blog, we’ll talk about trends, events, and also market shifts. Especially ones that will impact your logistics business. Then we’ll discuss how to apply technologies and best practices to:
