Trucking in Your Supply Chain is Changing  

Transportation technology is in the middle of a major revolution. This has been occasioned by the ever-changing technological landscape that is causing major inventions in the sector and improving efficiency on the existing transportation methods. The new inventions in the transport landscape are poised to reshape the way we move entirely. Here are six technologies that will change the transport and supply chain sector for the better, forever.


Overcrowded Supply Chains Are a Real Problem

When everything runs smoothly at our ports, companies will get their goods at the right time, logistics firms will adhere to their promises to the customers and buyers will get their items in a predictable, timely and reliable manner. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In many instances, there are supply chain disruptions caused by overcrowding, weather problems, and geopolitical problems. When you add the global pandemic into the mix, things take a new turn for the worst. With all these challenges, consumers are expected to increase in the future. Also, the amount of goods being shipped from overseas, mainly China, is expected to grow.  With this increase in demand, there is a likelihood of port congestion.

Here's How Your Logistics Are Changing

2020 was one of the most challenging years in modern history. The year saw many people lose their lives and livelihoods, businesses were closed, and millions of people got sick, all happening because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The changes in how we work, behave and live have caused disruptions of monumental proportions and supply chains have changed drastically from what it was in 2019. Fast forward 2021, we still see the damage caused by the pandemic, albeit better than last year. As such, most companies will change in the future to accommodate the new realities. Here’s how logistics are changing in 2021.


Ridesharing Apps Offer Incentives to Drivers Amid Driver Shortages

As Americans become fully vaccinated and restrictions ease – people are going to make up for loss time. That means Sunday brunches with friends they haven’t seen in over a year, traveling, scheduling doctor appointments that they’ve put off, and returning to work. Businesses will be booming as customers feel comfortable eating inside restaurants and working out in gym for that elusive “summer body.” And if you’re running late and don’t have a car – who you gonna call? An Uber or Lyft Driver. Unless you have a ghost in your home – then you’re better off calling the Ghostbusters.


Ghana becomes the first country to deliver vaccines via drone

Ghana became the first country to deliver Covid-19 vaccines by drone through a partnership with Zipline, an on-demand drone delivery service. CEO and co-founder of Zipline, Keller Rinaudo stated, “We are proud to be part of this significant milestone in Ghana where our drone logistics network is able to provide on-demand, last-mile delivery of COVID-19 vaccine at scale across the country.”


How Will Your Supply Chain Perform Post Pandemic?

The coronavirus pandemic has affected every industry in the world in ways never experienced before. It has forced governments and other authorities to take stringent measures to control the spread of the virus. Some of these measures include lockdowns and restriction of movement of people and goods. With these restrictions, the demand for goods and services has gone down, and the supply chain has been substantially affected. As the vaccine rollout gathers momentum, what remains to be seen is how the supply chain will perform after the pandemic.  


Maneuver Around These Logistics Roadblocks

Modern logistics is not only complicated but challenging as well. As such, shippers must be prepared at all times to identify the roadblocks that hamper their productivity and solve them in time.  With regard to outbound logistics management, logistics firms must navigate through hurdles raging from end-user demands to change in operational costs.
