The presence of technology has changed the way various industrial lines work today. Every industry is competing to make technology and the internet a medium that facilitates work. One of the impacts is the logistics system.
The development of Logistic Technology or technology used by the logistics system also shows positive conditions from all sides especially in the new year of 2019. So, how does logistics technology work this year? Check out the review below!
Utilizing Cellular Technology
The first thing that became the fundamental difference of the logistics system in the previous years. What is it now? It is the utilization of cellular technology. This situation is a positive impact on the development of technology and information in the country.
Cellular technology is utilized to help consumers see and observe the movement of goods ordered in real time. The presence of GPS functions, the ability to send text messages, and the functionality of applications into a logistics system is much easier.
The Decreasing Device Costs
The development of cellular technology has also been affected by a significant decrease in the cost of the device. When it compares to several decades ago, the use of cellular devices was only used by people from certain circles.
While this technology has been used thoroughly from various circles. This situation also has an influence on the logistics system where supply chain mobility can now be monitored only by the telephone.
The Ability to Track Shipments
Another way Logistic Technology works is the opportunity to track shipments of goods. In fact, when we talk about technology in the world of logistics, the benefits of the visibility of goods during the shipping process are the main bargaining power for consumers.
The visibility of this item can be monitored through smartphone technology, starting from the pickup point and then walking to the point of delivery of goods.
The Consumer Trace
Nowadays, technology enables customer to know everything related to the items targeted starting from the product design, the length of the shipping process, and how to return the product if they do not like it.
All information is also required to be provided by the provider company. This is caused by the use of smartphones and the sophistication of mobile phones that occur in the supply chain. Consumers can also trace all this information faster. It is along with the development of logistics technology in shipping this year, companies inevitably have to switch to mobile devices and the presence of applications as a solution. Visibility of customer orders is a major concern that should not be offered by the company. Besides that, companies are also required to have a connected system in all supply chain management, especially in factories and warehouses or storage areas. In Indonesia, one of the industrial areas with a variety of factories and warehouses with high technology is in Karawang New Industry City (KNIC), West Java.
There are various reasons why KNIC is the right choice for the manufacturing industry. Some of them are strategic locations near the toll road, Jabodetabek LRT, train stations, airports, and ports. This strategic location also facilitates the delivery of goods everywhere.
KNIC itself is basically a world-class integrated industrial city so that the presence of world-class infrastructure is evident in this place. It is not only that to support the performance of manufacturing companies, but KNIC is also present to help accelerate regional economic growth and present a Multiplier Effect that is useful for socio-economic development in Karawang and surrounding areas.
