As one of the biggest beneficiaries since COVID-19 pandemic, e-commerce salvages the retail industry, as few people all over the world opt for brick-and-mortar stores under lockdown. Most of us are increasingly familiar with Waimai (food delivery), next-day delivery, or on-demand delivery, but have you ever noticed the complex links in the supply chain that manage to deliver and transport parcels to you? Are you curious how logistics service providers continue to offer added-value services at low operating costs?
The evolution of technology is pushing the boundaries and optimizing customers’ experiences. For those companies embracing innovative technology, they are better at working efficiently and solving problems under difficult circumstances compared to their peers. The number of companies allocating and investing in smart software and systems are on the rise. They believe that making maximum and intelligent use of technologies including data analytics, blockchain, autonomous vehicles, or cloud promises improved efficiency.
However, according to McKinsey’s research, high level of external uncertainty—political, social, and epidemiological—will likely be with us well into 2021. Meanwhile, increasing customers’ expectations will generate much pressure. Given these scenarios, if a logistics player is ambitious enough to achieve economic profit growth and outperform the rest, remaining flexible and resilient to shifting conditions will be critical. Technology is likely to outweigh other factors as a prerequisite for success.
