Matching freight demand with capacity is becoming increasingly challenging, especially in today’s volatile environment.

Freight sourcing automation and smart assignment powered by AI

One new opportunity is AI-powered sourcing automation, or autonomous procurement.

“There’s a reciprocal relationship between big data and AI,” explains Ken Casey in an October 2019 article in The Enterprisers Project. “The latter depends heavily on the former for success, while also helping organizations unlock the potential in their data stores in ways that were previously cumbersome or impossible.”


Artificial intelligence applied to transportation

Unlike earlier trends that were enabling staff to do more, AI has the potential and the complexity that it raises two major questions for logistics leaders: Where will we find the talent to deploy AI, and to what degree will AI’s ability to handle activities that we pay workers to do revise our ideal workforce? The rest of the article provides one avenue to assessing where to place AI within a logistics operation, using procurement as an example, and how to estimate the change in roles it offers to the staff around it.
