Due to globalization, companies have felt the need to make use of new Internet technologies to improve performance when it comes to industrial processes, telecommunication operations, etc. They are an advantage for companies of any sector and especially for those engaged in the logistics sector.
One of the benefits of these new technologies in logistics is the improvement in customer service. With ‘customer service’ we mean the organization and management of the packages’ transport. Thanks to automation, selecting the most appropriate supplier, validating invoices and controlling transport become a more agile and organized task.
Another advantage of automation is real-time access to an exhaustive (ware, machines, etc.) and a complete analysis of all data. New technologies have allowed a process or machine to be controlled from a Smartphone. This is a simple and manageable way for the company to have all processes under control. Also, by using an RFID device, you can know where a container is at any time since these are marked with an identity sensor that works by radio waves.
As a general and main advantage, automation brings greater speed and scalability in logistics. Technology makes each job flexible and able to adapt to any situation and thanks to the global visualization of all processes, changes can be made to those processes that do not work correctly.
The automation of logistics processes is what will allow a company to become a leader in this sector. It will improve efficiency by reducing time and money in the field of logistics and will help carry out any activity in the most optimal way possible.
