Disrupting logistics

With the Hyperloop making headlines again and Amazon seeking greater autonomy over delivery as a hedge to their drone bet with air service, the disruption of logistics and transportation isn’t an “if” or a “when.” Rather, it’s a question of which industries and businesses will be first in line to harness these new technologies to make a leap forward.

A new report from our in-house analysts explores key disruptive technologies­ — Hyperloop, drones, and 3D printing in manufacturing­ — that are poised to transform the logistics and shipping industry and what the implications are for supply chains.

For a sneak peek of the disruption discussed in the report, check out the video from Davos of Bibop Gresta, COO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, revealing a breakthrough in the production of the Hyperloop to Tradeshift CEO, Christian Lanng:

Through crowdsourcing, Bibop’s pioneering company assembled the smartest engineers from across the world to create an entirely new model for how companies can be made. In the interview, he explains to Christian that the disruption of logistics will affect society-at-large as well as every company with a supply chain. 

In our view, as disruption accelerates, large companies will need to be increasingly agile to survive. Leaders in supply chain, sourcing, and procurement will need a set of considerations for how to retool their processes and infrastructure to allow them to survive and compete. The future is reserved for those who see first, understand first, and act first. The full analysis and details are in the report.
