Customers expect real-time updates on the status of shipments; businesses need assurance that their goods, especially sensitive items, are being transported in pristine and safe conditions; while logistics organizations seek comprehensive data about their assets and networks, so that they may optimize efficiency and network utilization.
Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL), the world's leading mail and logistics company, in May 2018 announced the launch of DHL SmarTrucking to provide an innovative trucking solution across an extensive linehaul express road network in India. DHL SmarTrucking is the company's move to accelerate the development of technology-enabled logistics solutions around the world, under its newly formed board department, Corporate Incubations, which was launched in April this year. CEO Neeraj Bansal discusses road connectivity, infrastructure and the rate of technology adoption in India.
SmarTrucks require smart drivers and DHL SmarTrucking is investing in skilling, which is also addressing the obstacle of lack of trained human resource in the industry. Neeraj Bansal, CEO, DHL SmarTrucking, shares the necessity of being backed by smart technology and smart people.
DHL SmarTrucking's 'TechLog' is logistics made smarter through the use of new and emerging technologies. Following a successful, three-month pilot that covered over 2,770,000 kilometres, DHL SmarTrucking leverages Internet of Things (IoT) technology and data-driven insights for route customisation.
German logistics major DHL today announced additional investments on top of the already committed Euro 250 million, in a specially created trucking company. The company aims to have 3,500 trucks by 2020 and take it up to 10,000 in a decade, but declined to give details of the investments which would be ploughed-in.
