Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are already making an impact in significant parts of global supply chains-warehouses, ports, distribution centres.
When deployed on smart highways, in smart cities and the plain open road they will collect a massive amount of data.
The disruptive competitive advantage to be gained by joining that data with other sources will be immense. Be prepared and plan ahead to be the disrupter rather than the disrupted.
We believe that supply chain is one of the sectors most able to take advantage of the benefits of Autonomous Vehicles. But it is also at risk of getting it catastrophically wrong, if the industry’s focus is only on efficiency and cost savings, rather than on looking at what can be done with the data generated through the use of AVs.
