Shipping companies face common digitalization challenges: namely, information integration. They often lack deep capabilities to manage volumes of informational and physical logistics transactional data within a diverse global network, in their cloud transformation journeys. These challenges could slow both profitable growth for providers and the realization of a true, single view of a global supply chain for customers.
The good news is that change is on the horizon, reports Kyndryl.
Supply chain opportunities
Shipping and logistics providers are leveraging supply chain opportunities such as digitalization, generative AI, IoT, 5G, autonomous ships, shipping drones, new fuels, and trade rules. And that’s leading to better systems that allow organizations to make quicker decisions about how goods are shipped, stored, monitored, serviced, and delivered to customers.
Kyndryl is working with several logistics and transportation companies and cities to help manage and modernize their IT infrastructure, integrating legacy technology systems with new applications. For example, earlier this year the Port of Barcelona commissioned Kyndryl for its ambitious technological transformation.
With advanced IT infrastructure services, companies can better anticipate potential problems and respond with flexibility and speed to exceptional events.
Such an approach helps to not only generate more efficient business operations but also to take shipping companies to the next level with modern systems. The evolution of these types of companies requires the support of a technology and services partner with scale, depth, and industry expertise to help them adapt to how people buy products today and in the future.
