Speaking about the latest technology trends for logistics, there is a variety of new methods and technologies to help companies transform their operations. Those proving especially germane to logistics and supply chain operations include automation, adaptive planning, rapid response, and continuous improvement of apps and procedures.
For example, Russmann, a large European car-rental business is benefiting from a new centralised system for its everyday operations. The system helps to automate management tasks and provides centralised fleet planning along with data-driven car disposition based on predictions of weekly demand.
The development of new hardware — robotics, drones, and autonomous vehicles — is reshaping the way supply chain works. With a little tinkering, engineers can gear these machines to operate in any way they deem helpful to the business at hand. So, even more companies are now using IoT development services to implement digital controllers and actuators, connected vehicles, and real-time connected sensors for smart asset tracking. They are rolling out identity-centric security to defend this gear from data breaches. The result: smoother, more secure warehouse and delivery operations.
Data science services can revolutionize supply chain businesses, for example by introducing machine learning models that enable anticipatory customer service. For the car-rental business described above, the data science solution can predict weekly demand for car rentals and suggest how to move the fleet among stations to meet the forecasted need. More generally, enterprise digital transformation powered by data science services and predictive analysis allows providers to exceed rather than merely meet customers’ expectations, increasing customer satisfaction and retention.

Right from the start, we really liked ELEKS’ commitment and engagement. They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented. I think, without ELEKS it probably would not have been possible to have such a successful product in such a short period of time.
