In recent times, the logistic challenges including global supply chain disruptions, port congestion, and labor shortages, cloud the logistics industry.
World-changing events such as the 2020 global pandemic or the Russia-Ukraine war have completely uprooted our previously established logistic system. As an industry, logistics faces new challenges in the form of a different reality, one that favours data-backed organizations that can back up their decisions with numbers.
This blog will explore the top logistic challenges businesses are currently dealing with and the creative solutions that FLIP, our AI-powered data transformation platform, provides to solve them.
Labor and Shipping Shortages
The lack of trained professionals and shipping staff is amongst one of the biggest logistic challenges. Health issues and quarantine restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have made this problem much worse.
FLIP addresses this challenge by streamlining data operations and reducing manual efforts. Businesses can manage an increased volume of shipments with limited personnel thanks to FLIP’s automation and orchestration capabilities, which optimize operations.
By leveraging FLIP’s proactive alerting and AI-enabled processing, logistics companies can ensure efficient workforce management and minimize delays.
Rising Freight Costs
Freight costs have skyrocketed due to fuel price spikes and shipping container shortages. These rising costs impact the profitability and competitiveness of enterprises.
FLIP offers a solution by optimizing data related to transportation routes and providing accurate insights into freight costs. Businesses can identify cost-saving opportunities, optimize shipping strategies, and mitigate the financial impact of rising freight costs – all by leveraging FLIP’s data transformation functions.
