Logistics, the industry behind the efficient movement of goods and services around the world, is undergoing an unprecedented transformation thanks to technological advancement and digitisation. As the sector advances, automation is redefining the employment landscape it experiences. Technology has played a crucial role in the evolution of the supply chain. From the introduction of warehouse management systems to data-driven route optimisation, each advance has contributed to increased efficiency and reduced operational costs.
Aware of this reality, at RFL Cargo, an international integrated logistics operator, we use advanced technological tools to offer efficient solutions. In a productive and relaxed working environment, we try to be an example of synergy between technology and the logistics industry at the service of our customers.
Artificial Intelligence and its impact on logistics
Automation is changing the way routine tasks are performed in logistics. Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based management systems are optimising delivery routes, taking into account factors such as traffic and weather conditions. This not only reduces delivery time, but also cuts fuel costs and carbon emissions.
As technology becomes more integrated into logistics, there are concerns about its impact on the workplace. While it is true that some repetitive tasks may be replaced by automation, AI is also creating new job opportunities and transforming the nature of existing jobs. The implementation of technologies requires a skilled workforce to operate, maintain and develop these solutions.
On the other hand, traditional roles in logistics are also evolving. Drivers benefit from digital assistance systems that help them navigate more efficiently and safely. This requires staff to supervise and coordinate automated operations, leading to the creation of higher value-added jobs.
