2023 Trends in the Logistics Industry
In 2022, we saw continued advances in the logistics industry. Supply chains became smarter with real-time data insights, and more companies prioritised sustainability.
Moving into 2023, we predict there will be a greater focus on sustainability and supply chain visibility through the use of cloud-based systems, smart fleet management and the continued use of AI to streamline operations.
If you’re looking to future-proof your logistics company for 2023, then you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we’re sharing the trends that we expect to see in 2023 in the logistics industry.
Cloud-based systems are becoming more popular in the logistics industry. Through these cloud-based technologies, companies can see various stages of the logistics process in real time. This information can be shared across teams to coordinate actions.
For example, Amazon recently launched a supply chain app that allows customers to visualise their entire supply chain using real-time data from the field. This allows users to spot risks and issues as they occur.
Artificial intelligence has been growing in popularity in the logistics industry recently, and we expect this trend to continue for 2023. AI has many applications in logistics, from automated vehicles and AI-powered robots in warehouses to digital insights. AI can also be used for planning and optimising routes to streamline the delivery process and make it more efficient.
Supply chain visibility
In 2023, we expect to see a continued focus on improving supply chain visibility. Real-time data used to improve SCV includes traffic patterns, weather conditions, and inventory information. This allows logistics providers to sidestep issues and shortages and avoid delays.
In 2023, we also expect to see a greater focus on sustainability in the logistics industry. One of the ways for companies to reduce their carbon footprint is through switching to electric vehicles. For example, Amazon has promised to have 100,000 electric delivery vehicles on the road by 2030. Other logistics companies will surely follow their lead and start to implement more electric vehicles into their fleet and improve their sustainability.
