One of the oldest industries that we have today, logistics is also feeling the effects of technological advancements. Some examples include package delivery by drone, smart tracking, etc. Read on to find out more!

It’s the dawn of a new age: the age where commands are given at the touch of a button and all business transactions conducted and monitored through a screen. The Internet has only come to change the manner in which business is conducted. This is only the beginning as experts are predicting what one can say to be unattainable. Imagine a whole ship cruising on its own in the deep oceans! How about that for technological advancements!

The good thing is, everyone is getting a piece of the cake as it has made work easier and convenient for one and all. The speedy and detailed delivery processes have cut down on manufacturer’s costs and hereby cut down largely on carbon footprints. This is through the reduction of unwanted labor as well as cutting down on a certain resource. Simple math dictates, the lesser the expenses, the fatter the returns. So, how has package delivery revolutionized over the years as a result of sweet technology?

Package Delivery by Drone

Package delivery by drone! You’ve seen it all on your screens; perhaps caught a glimpse of it from The Avengers as the heroes tried to track some supervillain. Now the same is about to become our everyday reality. You’ll be coming from work only to catch a drone going about a small package delivery of your birthday gift from your parents off in a different state. Come on, how cooler could it possibly get? Now imagine not having to wait for 7 hours to receive the iPhone XS you just ordered. The same trend could be seen in companies as they make use of package delivery robots to help ease the movement.

Tracking & Monitoring Of Shipment

If you thought drones and robots are changing package delivery in the business world, think how the ability to view your shipment means for your business. Whenever there is a failure in shipment delivery, it is always important to understand exactly where the goods met a barrier. This brings about package security during the delivery process. Both the client as well as the deliverer can monitor all the points the goods go through to reach the client. With Google’s enhanced GPS accuracy, how to track a shipment will soon incorporate a live video should the client choose to.

The process is simplified for both the sender and the receiver. The buyer makes an online purchase which is then enclosed in a secure package box. The package is then assigned a shipment tracking number which is sent to the buyer. With this number, they can reach out to the delivery company and request to view their transport detail. Some other companies will employ different types of tracking including apps that work like UBER.

Doorstep Delivery

Online means you don’t have to get out of your house if you need anything. Online means everything available at the touch of your hands. This automation of everything has seen an age where your order is brought right to your doorstep. No need to keep rushing to the post office anymore. This will only improve with time as businesses seek better ways to deliver ordered hauls.

Robots Processing Data

Man is to err is an excuse used on multiple accounts over the centuries. No more should that phrase fall into our daily vocab. Robots have come into the picture as the human intelligence that promises to be more reliable than the human memory if properly programmed. Even though the robots are only machines and prone to the mercy of humans meaning they can be hacked, more and more companies are still seeing the need to employ robots services in small package deliveries. More so, they also come in handy in the warehouses by simplifying the handling of logistics – this has been witnessed by Amazon after their recent purchase of Kiva Systems for their robots.

Conclusion

Even with the varied systems tracking items like tracked airmail that have made tracking of items a reality for clients, a lot is still to be done as technology improves. The future is seeing possibilities of automated trucks driven from a central point. Remember the old adage, “What goes around comes right back around”? Future trends are showing a continued reliance in the old forms – the train to be exact. This can be seen with the enormous investments China is making in Africa and other countries to diversify the rail systems. Hence, technology is not only offering new and better methods of doing things; it’s also here to improve old forms of package delivery and have them work in this new age.
