How is the future of the supply chain forming?
We don't need to look very far ahead in the future when we will be using robots, cobots (collaborative robots) and drones and doing so with the utmost naturalness. According to researches new technologies are expected to spread and the appearance of robots and cobots in manufacturing and logistics will reduce costs and increase the reliability and safety of processes. Drones can control incoming goods or speed up the delivery process. Cameras using artificial intelligence can monitor larger areas, compliance with safety standards may become easier, reducing risks.
The image that appears to be futuristic is not so distant, as the supply chains and logistical processes have already begun to transform. As a result of the changed market conditions, many companies ' traditionally furnished supply chains have become vulnerable and slow, so the production of the final product is stalled or cumbersome in many places.
The solution is for customers to learn from large industry innovators. These large best practice companies analyze large amounts of data to get a more accurate picture of customer needs, the change of which is easier to predict. They can optimize the entire supply chain based on the information thus collected and produced.
