It’s a vital industry and if it would stop or slow down, the world would literally stop turning as well. We are so dependent on it, that a pandemic or a flooding can cause severe consequences, yet threaten whole economies. We are talking about Logistics. People who work in Logistics already know, but constantly live in paradox: Logistics need to adapt rapidly to the changing conditions and are simultanously afraid of digitalization, stuck with old technology and often can‘t let go manual processes. We from Saloodo! handle concerns from freight forwarders on a daily basis – finding arguments for the urgent need to evolve into digitalization by using our digital transportation platform. A platform that represents in fact only the beginning of the new shapes of our future. 4 promising, high-potential technologies, using the abbrivation B-I-R-D, will accompany Logistics in the next years. A short introduction to B-I-R-D: Blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Data Science.
