HOW THE PANDEMIC DRIVEN THE LOGISTICS 4.0 AND WHAT TO EXPECT FROM NOW ON.

Logistics 4.0 is based on technology to make processes more agile and efficient, without increasing costs and avoiding problems in the process, has become an obligation for companies to remain competitive today.

This is a natural trend of evolution, since the consumer, who had already become quite demanding in recent years, after the start of the pandemic began to value even more the deadlines and the quality of delivery by companies. The sector needed to move quickly and find solutions to meet the growing demand.

Historically, technology has always impacted work processes within companies as much as people’s daily lives. But today, investment in innovation is vital for organizations.

What is Logistics 4.0?

Logistics 4.0 uses technology in the processes of storage, monitoring, security, transportation, among others, and makes them more efficient, both in terms of their operation and in relation to costs.

Among the technologies that can be used for this, it is possible to mention artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), automation, the use of drones, and many others. Each can contribute to a different process within the logistics.

With the support of these technologies, companies are able to meet new market demands, as well as improve their contact with the end customer, who is more satisfied.

Consumers are more demanding and creating more and more expectations that need to be fulfilled by companies.

Features of Logistics 4.0

Logistics 4.0 has as the main goal to obtain the greatest agility with the lowest possible cost through monitoring, security, and a well-organized supply chain. Three pillars are fundamental for this:

1. Logistic responsiveness.
Currently, we have been tracking deliveries, traffic management, and meteorology in real-time. In addition, we have the ability to review routes and the possibility of delivering on the same day, for example.

2. End-to-end visibility of the supply chain.
This feature is mainly related to the tracking of supplies and products. That is, even the end consumer can follow the path of your product in real-time, for example, increasing reliability and improving the customer experience.

3. Connected supply chain.

Logistics 4.0 is also able to contribute to the entire supply chain, making all processes safer and more agile as information can be passed and verified at all times.
