Nippon Express drives DX for logistics with NEC Vol.1
- In logistics, as with the rest of the economy, relentless advances in digital technologies are blurring the traditional boundaries between industries. The sector is being crowded by new actors from ecommerce and electronics to automotive companies investing in and leveraging IoT, AI, automation and robotics technologies to innovate solutions in warehousing and transport.
- These trends are welcome ones as they may help global supply chains become more resilient in the face of recent challenges. These include a worldwide shortage of warehouse workers and drivers; rising demand for logistic services, including those driven by surging e-commerce; and the need to reduce the environmental footprint of distribution.
- These social challenges, together with the influx of rivals, are spurring traditional logistics providers to accelerate their own digital transformation (DX). One such company is Nippon Express, Asia's largest and among the world's largest global logistics service providers.
