Companies that need to deal with cargo transportation are increasingly betting on delivery automation tools.
This is because, as the profit margins of companies decrease and consumers become more demanding, finding intelligent solutions has become a routine and indispensable task for those who want to remain competitive in the Brazilian market.
Artificial Intelligence, for example, has been widely used to maintain a roadmap aligned with delivery planning and management.
A tool that uses Artificial Intelligence will “learn” from the data informed by its users and, at the same time, apply the necessary actions to optimize all processes involving logistics management.
Mobility issues: we need to talk about it
With the circulation time reduced for some types of vehicles and other urban rules related to the truck traffic in big cities, like São Paulo and Porto Alegre, the issue of mobility and its restrictions interfere much more in the planning of deliveries.
The application of tools based on Artificial Intelligence can organize the data in an automated way and, consequently, perform a more agile and economical logistics.
We have separated some practical tips we use here at Sequoia, to deliver an agile and economical logistics. Check:
1. Define the most important information to be collected
Route extensions, travel time and weather forecasting, fuel costs and toll incidence along routes are examples of important information to collect in logistics managemen
In order for the routing be as realistic as possible, always try to consult your team about any information that may arise during the execution of the strategy and, mainly, encourage your participation in the routing of deliveries.
AgileProcess, for example, is a delivery management system that uses Artificial Intelligence and is able to collect and manage all information related to the company’s logistics, automatically seeking the most viable and cost-effective alternatives for each delivery.
2. Organize this information in an intuitive and fast platform
Give preference to a system that works with machine learning, since it provides and organizes the information collected through an evaluation based on the experiences of other users and not just on guesswork, very common of more conservative companies.
3. Create standardized processes for creating routes
There is no way to deal with unforeseen events without previously determining what measures to take (and by whom) in case of abnormalities.
Therefore, it is also important to focus on the development of processes (based on the experience of your team) and define an action plan for each unforeseen event that may occur in the future
4. Analyze and make improvements over time
There is no greater ally of process optimization than market experience. Improvements arise as a manager analyzes and determines what needs to be changed or what innovations need to be made to revolutionize the company’s logistics Therefore, encourage a culture of performance analysis and never consider that the company’s logistics have reached a maximum level of improvement.
