A series of short-term and long-term recommendations to help enterprises thrive in a digital logistics industry.
There are a number of concrete investments in digital capabilities that will form the building blocks of a successful digital logistics business. These are divided between shorter-term ‘no regret’ capabilities, which a logistics firm needs to remain competitive, and bold plays, which are longer-term investments that may revolutionize a company’s strategy.
We raise three key questions for logistics industry leaders and stakeholders to consider and address:
Should the industry continue to invest in scaling their existing closed platforms or should they be adding new business models such as crowdsourced platforms and analytics as a service?”
How can logistics stakeholders incentivize faster implementation of shared warehouse and transportation capacity to reap significant societal and customer benefits?
Logistics contributes 13% of all emissions globally. How can industry stakeholders quickly agree on developing safe and trustworthy approaches to more environmentally friendly technologies such as autonomous trucks and drones?
