IT companies are bringing more and more innovative solutions to the market inorder to increase efficiency in the transport supply chain. A big problem are empty mileageand empty runs, which are a natural consequence of increasing flows of goods. Whatpossibilities arise through modern IT solutions?
IT solutions in the transport industry already play a very important role today. Youonly need to historically consider, which possibilities are available in the automation ofprocesses in the logistics industry, starting with barcodes. Today, it is RFID transpondersthat cover even greater density of information and led to further, even faster, informationprocess sequences.
The end of this development will probably be GPS transponderswhich come from the 3D printer. Even if for us today this kind of solution is still almostunthinkable, there are already start-ups that deal with it.
How do you see the further development?
The meaning of IT solutions will significantly increase. In connection with “ArtificialIntelligence” (AI) more and more computation-intensive processes will be made automatic.Tracking & Tracing" by telematics units will not be the leading system, but anindispensable informant who provides the decisive data.
At the end of this developmentthere will be highly complex IT systems capable of controlling and directing theseprocesses.
