Data science has changed how our world operates. From machine learning and AI to predictive analytics, our capacity to shape data into real world results for people and business is one of the defining technology touchstones of our time. And with the constant collection of more and more data, industries are grappling with how to leverage that data to advance their business goals.
This holds true in the logistics industry, and it’s no surprise why. In our industry, we are able to collect countless data points every day from all corners of the world on land, sea and in the air. We’re fortunate to have the most comprehensive data set in the industry, but it’s not delivering value until we do something actionable with it. In order to make a real difference for shippers and carriers—and ultimately, consumers—we have to translate our information advantage into better outcomes.
And that’s where innovation comes in. Understanding how to utilize data, science, and technology to create solutions that improve savings, reliability, and visibility. To do that, we dedicate resources and time to test and incubate the most promising ideas, with the ultimate goal of scaling them across not just one company or organization, but the entire industry.
