The boom in e-commerce has really changed the retail & logistics sector. Today you can order most of the things required in day to day life from the comfort of your home & lot of times you might get your products delivered same day or the next day. The question is- what advancement technology will bring now in retail & logistics? Are we going to shop literally everything from our homes? Are we the last generation to buy products from physical stores? Think about the smart sugar container in your kitchen which will analyse the remaining quantity of sugar and will order the next packet automatically according to your inventory level & then a drone delivers this packet within minutes. No more waking up to find your tea stash is empty or last-minute trips to the grocery store because you forgot to buy pet food or think about getting things delivered when you are travelling, like in a moving train!
The future is already here. Amazon said it is working on drones that could make deliveries of small packages directly from warehouses to homes. More than a year ago they even tested drones for last-mile deliveries in London. Not just big companies like Amazon but even lot of startups are doing amazing work in this sector. HaloBee an Indian startup is on a mission to digitize the entire offline retail industry. There are startups developing unmanned trucks, mobile robots, machine learning technology & IOT to automate the complete retail & logistics system. With the more and more advancements in Artificial Intelligence the supply chain is becoming leaner, faster and most importantly, self-orchestrated.
