From the outside it may appear that a digital logistics company isn’t that much different from a traditional logistics provider: they both enable transportation of goods. But if we look a little closer, the fact of the matter is the difference that going digital makes for both cargo owners and logistics providers can be vast.
To put it very simply, the digital logistics company simply takes traditional data and information collection, which is often manual, and therefore susceptible to human oversight or delays, and digitises it. This can help optimise logistics strategies, processes and systems making it faster, more cost efficient and secure. An example that is easy to understand is how traditional logistics companies rely on paper-based communication; a digital logistics company will instead have all documents verified and signed on a digital freight platform. All information is electronic, and it is easily shared. The benefits of this is simple to see and realize.
But the advantages of employing digital logistics doesn’t end there. Because a digitised system doesn’t only help cargo owners save money, time and resources: it also makes information about delivery times, route plans and pricing and other data about a shipment readily available for everyone to grasp.
Today, with problems like Covid-19 outbreaks, container shortages, port congestions, and even last minute blank sailings, digital logistics enables stakeholders to be exceptionally responsive and make informed decisions on the spot, whatever happens.
And as logistics become increasingly global, seamless communication and cooperation between stakeholder turn out to be even more critical. With a digital logistics system to handle all operations involved in shipping goods across the world, all participants can communicate and interact efficiently whether they are in Shanghai, Stockholm or Sydney.
The shipping industry is changing and it seems that digital logistics companies are leading the way. A digitised future where the full journey of a shipment is planned and commissioned digitally is more productive, flexible and reliable.
