Necessity drives change for the future of the freight and logistics industry

The freight and logistics industry experienced significant disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. To maintain profitability, drive operations efficiency and respond to evolving industry and competitive pressures, freight and logistics companies need to look beyond traditional tools and resources for warehousing, procurement and supply chain management.

To gain a competitive advantage in today's complex environment, developing new freight and logistics solutions to better navigate ecosystem disruptions is crucial. Increasing e-commerce digital transactions helps bring logistics management beyond the COVID-19 crisis and helps ensure that customers aren’t affected by whatever challenge is next. Stay ahead of the crisis curve with technologies that include data, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and artificial intelligence to optimize operations, improve asset performance management and lower global logistics costs. Take advantage of IBM’s knowledge and expertise so you can run smoothly no matter what’s around the bend.
