AI is being incorporated in new ways to address the difficulties presented by the coronavirus. Third-party logistics companies and other brokerages are using machine learning to enable intelligent routing, leverage robotics to move goods, and introduce touchless documentation
Fremont, CA: The need for a transformation in traditional supply chain models has surfaced as COVID 19 pandemic exposed the vulnerabilities and disorganization in many business systems. The majority of the times, global shocks become a wake-up call to companies and age-old trade methods. This time it is no different. The current supply chain disruptions can be swamped with the help of new technology.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are dramatically improving the supply chain's end-to-end visibility and ability to resist unprecedented shocks or breaks. The traditional linear supply chain model is transforming into a digital supply network, where functional storehouses are off the scenario. For instance, AI-enabled cross-docking is effectively carried out in transporting goods where companies move goods out of a full trailer into multiple smaller trucks to disperse it to various stores where they're needed. AI also helps to determine the estimated time of arrival of these trucks. Companies can save a lot of money by avoiding warehouses.
IoT, AI, and machine learning are designed to anticipate and meet future challenges. Machine learning, also perceived as computer programs that access data to process complex physical labor, has revolutionized business transportation.
Out of the several benefits that machine learning delivers to the supply chain management, the most notable is the cost-efficiency in carrying out complex tasks. As the digital threads of organizations become connected, companies experience a complete supply network entirely under control. Machine learning and AI enable uninterrupted visibility, collaboration, fluency, and optimization of supply chains.
Disruptive technologies, including new sensors and cognitive computing, have created the foundation for connected and intelligent digital supply networks.

Before the current break down, only a few global enterprises had adopted AI and IoT in their supply-chain management. Digital transformation within supply chains is inevitable, considering the setback it received during the disruption. AI and machine learning can play a substantial role in supplier relationships and strategic trade development in the future.
