Deploying and adapting to ever-changing technology is a tedious yet necessary task. Martin has never shied away from utilizing technology to provide the best to Freightgate’s clients. In the current scenario, the opportunities with IoT and AI are to reduce the impact of delays in shipments before they become major disruptions and have severe economic consequences. AI can also be used in supply chain planning, looking for ways to improve the supply chain processes overall.
