IT and Software Potential in Transportation & Logistics Sector
Logistics is a complex process that involves the movement of goods around the world for trade & commerce and for military purposes. Virtually all types of transportation require logistic management. With more goods being traded and moved across the world, and due to the inadequacy of the manual process, the need for automation of logistics management operations has grown extremely complex. There are so many aspects of transportation that can be automated with software. It can be as simple as writing an invoice or as complex as calculating tax within and outside the country.
Logistics is not limited to civilian use; the armed forces of countries also have extensive use for logistic management automation software. Logistics software can keep track of the movement of materials and equipment in multiple locations. A well-developed software properly integrated across multiple points across the world can be a great asset for military officers to plan the movement of not only ammunition, equipment, tanks, support equipment, and war materials but also help in the movement of soldiers and food.
The advantage of using software in logistics is that it can help to preplan and execute movement faster and more precisely – the chances of errors are rare unless there is human intervention. Logistic software fined application in supply chain management, supply chain engineering, and simulation.
