What happens when capital rich companies like Amazon and Alibaba decide to enter into age-old Logistics industry? A revolution is on its way. Times have come to move away from documentation and freight booking. Soon, we will be talking about automatic drone delivery and one click shipping for international trade. Looking at the steps amazon is taking right now in this direction; it will soon turn a competitor to companies like UPS, FEDEX and DHL.
Technology will soon revolutionize and automate the entire supply chain industry when a merchant in China calls Uber to truck his shipment and his cargo is sent to vessel, reaches its port, goes to warehouse and flies directly to consumers via automated drone. All these things will need a few clicks on smartphone. Backed by over 5 billion dollars in investment, let’s get ready to see a new face of logistics.
