logistics technology eastern united states A technological revolution is happening in the logistics and transportation industry…and your business could benefit from it! Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being invested in by transportation companies of all kinds, including hazardous materials logistics and transport businesses like C Three Logistics.

We have long put the latest technology to work in our business, using it to maximize safety and efficiency, and to help ensure timely deliveries. It is estimated that by 2026, AI will be used by more than 75% of businesses involved in the domestic supply chain.

As these new AI technologies continue to grow, C Three Logistics will continue to apply this and other cutting-edge technologies to our hazardous materials services.

You may be wondering, “What is artificial intelligence?” Artificial intelligence is machines and computers simulating human intelligence to perform tasks.

Artificial intelligence is at use all over the place today across several industries and sectors. The most common applications you know of are personal assistant technology products such as Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple’s Siri, or your home’s robotic floor cleaner. It is also the technology being used to develop self-driving cars and commercial equipment.

How Will Artificial Intelligence Impart Logistics and Transport Services?

Artificial intelligence is a powerful resource for analyzing and forecasting traffic patterns based on drivers’ behavior, providing invaluable insight to traffic management teams. By leveraging AI technology, the C Three Logistics team can formulate more efficient hazardous materials transport plans.

The algorithms used in artificial intelligence allow it to make decisions using real-time data.
Here’s an example of how AI can be applied to our transportation services:

Artificial intelligence is also employed on the logistics side of our business. The AI equipment can gather and process traffic, weather, and road safety data. In seconds, it can alert our drivers to any particular problems on their route such as high traffic volume, accidents, or dangerous weather, and provide alternatives.

Using artificial intelligence also improves our communications with our customers. It can allow for end-to-end tracking that allows you to stay informed, in real time, the exact location of your shipment and its progress.

You can trust C Three Logistics to make your hazardous materials transport as safe and efficient as possible. Contact us today to set up a consultation for your next project.
