Does Logistics Matter? Podcast Episode: Next-Generation Freight Forwarding

08/22/2022 | 4 min

How has the movement of freight changed? What challenges are forwarders facing? How are they coping with constant rate changes? How are forwarders levering the large amounts of data?

These are questions that were addressed in the latest episode of the Does Logistics Matter? Podcast. Transporeon Supervisory Board Chairman and TTS Managing Partner Hermann Ude and Transporeon’s Executive Director Carrier Management, Gruziana Hoxha, joined Martijn Graat, founder of the Logistics Matter platform, for a conversation around the theme: Next-Generation Forwarding.

Digitalisation Key to Forwarder Future

Hermann and Martijn started their logistics career when the fax machine was still one of the primary means of communication between players in most logistics processes. Hermann takes the listener through the developments in freight forwarding of the past decades. He explains how digitalisation has radically transformed the forwarding industry. Gruziana elaborates on the power, potential and impact of data and artificial intelligence in logistics processes.

Next-generation Forwarding

On one thing, Hermann, Gruziana, and Martijn agree. Next-generation freight forwarding is not possible without digitalisation. AI-powered insights, full visibility and working with all parties involved within the same digital platform environment. It also optimises the available capacity across the network. It increases efficiency for freight forwarders while at the same time increasing the fill rate of their trusted carrier base.

Next-generation forwarding enables logistics teams to focus on managing their relationships and adding value while repetitive tasks are automated through the AI-powered platform.
