Automation in Logistics and Shipping: Intelligent Data Extraction
In this consumer-driven world, people expect goods to be delivered to their doorstep as soon as they click “Buy”. Online retailers that want to offer same-day delivery must ensure their logistics and warehouse operations have the processes and tools that enable them to fill orders in less than 24 hours. This means, organisations need to ensure they are operating with total efficiency, streamlining operations and reducing costs. Of course, this is achievable by automating existing processes with Intelligent Document Processing (IDP).
Automation: What is it for?
In a factory or workplace, technology operates alongside individuals. Companies that implement automation reassign human workers to new roles that require near cooperation with bots and the maintenance of new devices, rather than replacing employees with robots. Machine learning may be the solution if you want greater productivity and a quicker, more efficient route to market.
Logistics automation has become a high priority for CEOs because of an increase in labor shortages, growing demand from online retailers and driving technological advances. Employees are no longer doing basic and tedious tasks; the AI will take over instead.

Some Use Cases of ‘Intelligent Data Extraction’ Implementation in Logistics
1. Tracking shipment deliveries
Capture and validate highly reliable details directly from a mobile device's shipping instructions, waybills, receipts, proof of delivery, and purchase orders. Receive signed copies of delivery documents in real time at the right point in the process, together with a shipper or recipient of goods to monitor delivery via a computer or mobile device.
2. Speed the processing of customs form
Extract tariff and manifest information automatically for each line item in a shipment and export data automatically.
3. Technical documentation on vehicles
Detailed information for the processing and digital archiving of all necessary documents for trucks, trains, ships, aircraft, containers and their individual components is extracted.
Identify where shipments are in your fleet to instantly identify where vehicles are sitting idle, or shipments are assigned to the wrong vehicle or wrong location, and immediately take action to save fuel and crew cost
4. Gain efficiency and improve customer interactions
All different types of documents are processed in a single stream, with unparalleled speed and precision. In order to monitor delivery status, fix complaints, answer questions, make change requests, and receive approvals, enhance customer interactions by getting details at your fingertips.
