Leading the Way for Real Transformation within the Logistics Industry

Leading the Way for Real Transformation within the Logistics Industry

At the beginning of the 20th century, Henry Ford changed transportation―and quite frankly the world. He didn’t set his sights on giving us a faster horse. He left the horse behind and built the industry a practical, reliable and affordable car that would advance our world into the future.

As CEO and Founder of Teknowlogi, I feel a kinship with Henry Ford. Our logistics industry is at a precipice where competing in today’s 24/7/365 on-demand marketplace is becoming increasingly harder using current legacy systems. Logistics companies (both asset and non-asset) and shippers are in need of smarter technology that can improve operations and reduce costs.

The role and capabilities of transportation management systems (TMS), in particular, have grown stale as logistics networks and operations have become more dynamic and complex. Companies that continue to manage their logistics operations with outdated systems, or worse, with manual spreadsheets, will find it difficult or impossible to keep up with their customer and partner requirements of saving money and providing better services―not to mention trying to meet their own cost and business growth objectives.

With more than 14 years of consulting and technology experience in the transportation industry, I’ve come to understand the “day in the life” challenges and frustrations so many logistics professional face. We, at Teknowlogi, want to change that!

With that being said, I want to welcome you to the inaugural edition of the Teknowlogi blog. It is here we want to delve deeper than product features and functions to provide insight on how to transform your logistics company to survive―and thrive―in today’s global marketplace.

In this blog, we’ll talk about trends, events and market shifts that will impact your logistics business. Then we’ll discuss how to apply technologies and best practices to:

  • Make Big Data more manageable
  • Gain more visibility into Big Data
  • Make Business Process Management (BPM) easier

I want to be the first to introduce you to the Logistics Expert System (LES), a new breed of advanced technology that represents the next evolution of TMS―and more. It is the first, global SaaS platform to combine TMS, mobile intelligence (MI), integration intelligence (II), business intelligence (BI), consulting intelligence (CI) and artificial intelligence (AI) in one platform. The LES is powered by Tai, the industry’s only cloud-based solution built on AI, and is able to assess, analyze, provide recommendations and execute change for numerous logistical and business situations that affect all players within the shipping industry, including shippers, 3PLs, freight forwarders, LTL brokers, truckload brokers, LTL carriers, truckload carriers, drayage carriers, cartage agents, couriers, parcel carriers and others. Tai is the industry’s first solution that incorporates business process management and consulting intelligence logic into the workflow of the platform.

Tai Mobile Intelligence enables on-demand self-service for data, business process management, and API management for all segments of the logistics industry, creating a one-stop shop for all types of asset carriers, 3PLs and shippers. It enables end-users to address industry “hot points” such as shipment visibility and shipment management, trailer management and trailer/truck capacity management anytime and from any location.

The combined solutions provide unrivaled visibility and access to data that enable real-time decision-making in today’s business world.

And that’s just for starters.
