Accelerating Digital Transformation in Logistics

Digital transformation in shipping and logistics

To drive growth and profitability, shippers need to transform back-office functions in a manner that reduces manual processes and integrates processing through the entire supply chain with both carriers and trading partners, notes Bruce Orcutt, SVP of Product Marketing at ABBYY in a recent feature in Inbound Logistics.

Orcutt discusses the following three processes as offering the greatest return on investment for automation initiatives for shippers:

Accounts payable: Content intelligence solutions automatically extract and classify data within structured and unstructured documents such as invoices, enabling high-value automation.

Customs forms: Instead of manually reviewing and transferring customs forms, the technology can automatically extract relevant tariff and product information from every single line item in a shipment, which saves time, resources and eliminates errors.

Scheduling and logistics: Automation is important to optimize global sourcing and subcontracting while managing multisite operations and maximizing profits. This includes capturing as well as submitting proof-of-delivery, receipts and bills of lading.

The path of digital transformation may not always be an easy one and must be strategically executed to ensure maximum return on investment.
