In recent years, companies have focused their efforts on having platforms that help them capture and store large volumes of data. But it is now that efforts are focusing on adding value to these data by applying Advanced Analytics. Transport and logistics sector is not an exception. It is now that real value is being extracted from data in the transport sector, completely changing business operations in all business areas.
The use of data in the transport sector
Passenger and freight transport companies rely on fleet management, logistics operations and route planning systems, generating a large volume of data about their vehicles, drivers, and their logistics activity.
Through the different analytical techniques (which we will explain in the next point) we can acquire a greater knowledge of what happens in our business based on data, and base our decisions on them.
If we want to improve the efficiency of our business processes, we must invest in solutions based on Advanced Analytics. In order to improve customer service and increase the efficiency of the logistics chain, allowing a rapid response to the changing needs of logistics operations and improving the productivity of available resources.
Applying Advanced Data Analytics
In order to achieve the above objectives it is necessary to use Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics solutions. These solutions make it possible to predict what may happen in the future, such as anticipating the activity demand or dimensioning future needs.
This information is of great value for tactical and strategic planning of logistics operations. In addition, you can apply Prescriptive Analytics, a discipline that includes operational investigation techniques that help to choose the best option among all the possible ones.
