the concept of artificial intelligence and its potential benefits are no longer unfamiliar to many people, and with the growing strength of artificial intelligence, more and more enterprises begin to explore its benefits. Supply chain management, logistics and other industries continue to occupy a central position in the AI competition, which also makes the AI technology reach a new application level every year. According to the forecast of infoholic research, the compound annual growth rate of AI in logistics and supply chain market is 42.9% from 2017 to 2023, and it will reach US $6.5 billion by 2023.
Recently, the data root laboratory, a Ukrainian data research company, published an article on the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the logistics industry, describing the current challenges faced by the logistics industry, as well as the innovation and application of this technology by start-ups and major participants.
artificial intelligence plays a key role in the field of logistics
in today's era of online shopping, delivery speed is particularly important. At the same time, the price of products has gradually become transparent. Consumers expect to get high-quality service with low cost, and enterprises also hope to get the most output with the least cost, which brings huge pressure on the profit margin of enterprises, thus promoting enterprises to the road of automation. At present, without the application of new technologies to deal with complex processes and manage a large amount of data, enterprises will not be able to keep pace with the times and it will be difficult to make sustained profits. This is also the reason why artificial intelligence brings high value and high return to users.
industry trend artificial intelligence in automation field
the innovation of artificial intelligence in the field of logistics contributes to the automation of existing processes, which makes automation transformation an important issue for logistics directors. automation is the first step to achieve large-scale optimization, so many companies have started logistics automation transformation to maintain competitiveness, because it can not only optimize existing processes, but also improve efficiency and productivity.
emerging logistics AI startups
the data root lab lists 100 start-ups that have introduced AI into the global logistics industry, including Shenzhen based Hairou innovations. established in 2016, hailou innovation is committed to providing efficient, intelligent, flexible and customized warehouse automation solutions through robot technology and artificial intelligence algorithm, and has completed more than 70 projects worldwide. the company focuses on the R & D, design and scheme planning of container storage robot (ACR) system, and its haipack robot system has been applied in 3PL, footwear, e-commerce, electronics, power, manufacturing, medicine and other industries.
the increasing demand for artificial intelligence in the field of logistics has promoted the rapid development of logistics AI start-ups such as Hai Rou innovation 。 The new crown epidemic has brought great pressure to the logistics industry, and also created unprecedented opportunities. For example, as more and more consumers turn from offline to online, the e-commerce industry gradually rises; the emergence of UAVs, autonomous vehicles and robots gradually replace the human work industry, minimizing the risk of labor shortage and helping to maintain social distance …… the application of artificial intelligence technology in the field of logistics is an irreversible trend. Enterprises need to understand and apply new technologies in time, keep pace with the times and maintain competitiveness.
