The Rise of Digital Logistics

Posted on Posted in Industry, Technology, Uncategorized

As the Access Economy landscapes continue to evolve, the two Access Economy industries standing above the rest are online food delivery and transportation. These industries are looking to be worth $210 billion and $100 billion, respectively, by 2020. But we are also seeing a new cash-cow emerge, digital logistics. It is expected to be worth almost $13 billion by 2020. Current major players include Advantech, DigiLogistics, Hexaware, IBM, JDA Software, Oracle, SAP, Tech Mahindra, and UTI Worldwide. They are building their futures around warehouse, transportation, and labor management technology.

Fleet Management Tech

Nestled within this digital logistics revolution is fleet management, and it is poised to be a massive success. Using GPS to find, build, and disperse your fleet of trucks, dump trucks, construction equipment, or other large vehicles will maximize the efficiency of a temporary fleet. And it will greatly simplify the hassle of regulations and paperwork involved with rented, subcontracted, leased, and employee-owned vehicles. As the digital logistics industries continue to grow and innovate, Meta Construction Technologies is at the forefront of connected fleet management technology.
