Transport management systems are highly advancing with the industrial revolutions and  arrival of the internet. Let’s take a look at future transportation technologies and trends that are sure to impact the trucking and transportation industries forever.

Driverless vehicles

Vehicles without drivers are possible, like objects connected to the Internet, to detect environmental factors and drive safely without presence of human

Vehicles without drivers have already proven their productivity in the transport sector even if they are still being tested. This technology will soon get in use to improve the performance of the supply chain for businesses who wish to significantly reduce costs and other expenses.

In addition, it will allow a constant transportation, and increase the availability of business in the delivery even on holidays. The risk of accidents will reach almost zero as no human error will be associated because of tiredness, loss of concentration or alcohol.

The Mole

Although drone delivering goods via airspace, Mole Solutions are taking things below ground. The Mole is a concept developed in UK, and it is based on a network of underground pipes in order to avoid traffic congestion. The Mole is designed to deliver a large number of goods to businesses and suppliers currently and the Mole has the potential to provide long-lasting benefits to cities suffering with high levels of congestion. Underground mail systems deliver packages to door without the need for a traditional Royal Mail postmen and women. In future, mole system can streamline the delivery process for parcels and post. If this system is successful, Mole’s influence could cut delivery costs and also traffic congestion.


Objects connected to the Internet

Objects connected to the internet is technology in which Objects communicate with each other through cloud based GPS, radio frequency (RFID) and the company with which they transmit their location. It also monitor temperature and other environmental changes. With this there are less possibilities of good loss and damage. Using this system, the location of each object in a warehouse and the identification of goods transported in real time are sent to the central office.

It allows increased visibility of transport and a better flow in the supply chain which further allows faster sending of good. So, this will increase customer satisfaction.
