Developments and Challenges in Freight Forwarding
Freight Forwarding has changed a lot in the last few years. Digitalisation has made many processes much more efficient and has increased the speed at which all parties in the supply chain can respond to customer demands and disruptions.
Freight forwarders have to deal with demanding customers and constantly changing prices. At the same time, they have to deal with changes in available capacity. On the other side are the transporters, who mostly struggle with similar issues.
Forwarding companies that use the potential hidden in the large amounts of data at their disposal can increase their efficiency, agility, and bottom line. Artificial intelligence and smart algorithms can provide insights, automate repetitive tasks, and increase visibility.
Hermann and Gruziana explain the key elements of next-generation forwarding and how artificial intelligence and process automation can increase the efficiency of both forwarders and transport companies, streamlining their communication and enabling them to work closer together.
