Global dynamic urbanization trends have transformed the existing logistics supply chain, increasing its complexity, however technological penetration has enabled simplification of industry processes. The rapid proliferation of connectivity, as well as the increase in start-ups and unconventional companies, is creating new types of services based on on-demand, real time and last-mile delivery solutions. Key new business models relate to app-based and market place models, and online brokerage services that provide aggregated end-to-end visibility across the supply chain.
This is opening new growth opportunities for market players in different areas such as anticipatory delivery arising from predictive analytics and semi-autonomous and fully autonomous applications which will create a new era of freight brokerage services controlled via smart devices. From generating consumer insights to understanding the product flows comprising driver behaviour, shortest routes, and other valuable information, big data has resulted in tremendous cost saves and optimized delivery models.
"The logistics industry is undergoing a significant business transformation, comparable to when Expedia revolutionized the travel industry with online platforms and achieved colossal improvements in the quoting and procurement of services. New logistics players are now implementing similar business models, providing the much-needed price transparency and seamless service for the freight supply chain. Over the next years, we can expect additional innovative solutions that will reshape the market," explains Archana Vidyasekar, Visionary Innovation, Global Research Manager at Frost & Sullivan.
