Simplify Logistics By Making Shipments Happen In Real Time
Logistics is an ever-evolving industry that presents numerous challenges, including the ongoing pandemic, supply chain disruptions, bottlenecks, inflation, and the need for sustainability. From global corporations to niche players, logistics companies must adapt quickly to the changing landscape.
Amazon has raised the bar for eCommerce by setting new standards for faster and more efficient logistics services, focusing on supply chain transparency and real-time tracking. In this blog, we will explore how technology enables logistics companies to become more innovative, efficient, and agile. Data integration and real-time analytics are leading the transformation, and emerging technologies like autonomous vehicles are on the horizon.
Data synchronization and integration with a unified view
Data is a key differentiator. And data integration is essential for an accurate view of their operations - across all data sources and types - from package sensors, senders, transporters, recipients, and to other stakeholders.
Logistics companies need to integrate and synchronize data with various systems such as transportation management systems (TMS), route optimization tools like GPS, and customer relationship management software (CRM). Macrometa can help make each step of the logistics process more efficient with real-time data integration. It allows logistics companies to monitor the journey - from package weight, ETA, weather conditions to maintenance issues.
Macrometa provides a “control tower” view that serves as a centralized hub for monitoring and managing logistics. The dashboards show key data from multiple sources like IoT sensors, TMS, CRM, or route optimization tools. This single view of data, combined with real-time operational analytics, enables them to personalize the customer experience, ensure compliance, and prepare for changing conditions well in advance.
Data protection and compliance
Fraud prevention and data privacy are critical concerns for logistics companies as they have a lot of personal data in multiple systems. Macrometa's built in Data Protection helps you comply with regional regulations such as GDPR and CCPA with data pinning, vaulting, encryption, access controls, and data anonymization features for reporting across regions. Real-time fraud detection alerts you to any planned route deviation or any other anomalies to thwart fraud or theft.
Be ready to transform for the future
Logistics companies need to be prepared to support AI and ML data-intensive, high-speed transactions and algorithms as they adopt autonomous vehicles and drones. Macrometa can help logistics companies analyze vast amounts of data in real time, identify patterns and trends, and make more informed decisions about the optimal routes, schedules, and modes of transportation for each shipment. Logistics companies can gain predictive insights into potential disruptions or delays, enabling them to take proactive measures to mitigate them.
Hyper distributed cloud for logistics
Macrometa's hyper distributed cloud platform helps logistics companies overcome system integration challenges by providing real-time data analytics and ML algorithms across different data sources and formats. The platform enables logistics companies to access and process data from anywhere in the world, providing real-time insights into their operations and enabling seamless collaboration and communication with partners and customers.
