Top 3 Reasons Parcel Shipments Get Misrouted

As more businesses ship goods around the globe, there is a major concern over misrouting, a major complaint from consumers.  If you are a shipper, the last thing you want is to have your shipments misrouted. This means your customers will have to wait longer for the error to be rectified.  This can lead to a bad reputation in your industry and a loss of business.

How To Deliver A Windshield

We all know how frustrating airports and air transportation can be especially when there are delays involved. It is enough of a hassle to get through the airport and onto your airplane, but no one wants to see their aircraft be delayed or grounded once they are on it. On average, it costs $150,000 every hour an airplane is grounded. This makes it imperative for airlines to get the parts needed for repairs as soon as humanly possible.

How Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) Will Change Shipping In 2018

It is hard to predict the speed at which technology will impact logistics dramatically. From Geo-tagging capabilities to autonomous robots, technology will have enormous impacts on the logistics industry as a whole. Application Programming Interfaces or APIs will be at the center of connecting all these features into a single management system.

In 2015, the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) was the core of advanced transportation management systems, but it is becoming irrelevant. Shipping APIs are taking over the shipping industry, becoming the most tech practice among shippers. In a research conducted with 200 supply chain managers, 85% are using EDI, but 43% were unsatisfied with them. 55% of the respondents believe APIs is a practical option to use instead of the EDI. The main reasons for the replacement are the need to function in real time, compatibility to use competitive TAT, and big data tech compared to EDIs.

An AOG Can Cost Up To $150K/Hr. How To Combat This Cost In 2018

An airplane is checked regularly after every flight, 36 hours or every week. In a perfect world, the plane never has unforeseen issues and is only out of commission for regular maintenance. However, we all know the world is not perfect. When an aircraft breaks or becomes grounded, it can cost airlines up to $150k/hr and delay or cause cancellations nationwide. Fixing a downed aircraft is a highly sensitive priority that can be broken down into 3 steps: procuring the replacement part or tool, having that part or tool transported to the facility, and working with a maintenance team to repair the plane.
