Key Takeaways: Streamline Your Logistics Operations
- Sreenivas (Sreeni) Vemulapalli is Associate Vice President at Emtec Digital, a global technology services company providing digital software engineering and transformation services to some of the leading transportation and logistics companies across the world.
- In the podcast interview, Sreeni and Joe discuss how to streamline your logistics operations.
- Sreeni and the Emtec Digital team work with dozens of top logistics, transportation, warehousing, supply chain, and freight tech companies on a variety of technology projects, but the interview was mostly focused on digital automation using robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent process automation (IPA).
- Artificial intelligence is a part of intelligent automation.
- Intelligent automation is the intersection between rule-based, relatively inflexible robotic process automation (RPA) with the adaptive learning and decision-making capabilities of artificial intelligence.
- While the technology is not easily understandable for non-techies, RPA and IPA are affordable, easily implemented and widely used by the top transportation and logistics companies.
- To stay competitive in the increasingly tech-centric logistics and transportation space, companies should consider investing in IPA and RPA – the return on investment is very attractive, which is why so many companies are taking the plunge.
- In the interview, Sreeni described how companies are using RPA and IPA to streamline the following logistics operations:
- Tracking and tracing
- Freight quotations
- Appointment scheduling
- Document management including proof of delivery, bill of lading, accessorial, etc.
- Once an operation is automated using RPA and IPA, the operation is performed faster, better, and less expensively – and it frees up your team to focus on higher value work.
- Emtec develops digital products or platforms that are customer facing – products that have the ability to delight customers and give your company a competitive advantage.
