Challenge

Machine Learning has transformed almost every industry, with logistics being no exception. Considering the complexity of logistics, no wonder it was among the first industries ML made a big difference to. Our client’s intention was to disrupt the logistics industry by offering a breakthrough all-in-one IoT solution suitable for all actors. The toughest challenge facing logistics is related to its multi-operational nature. It involves a bunch of activities such as packaging, transportation, documentation, inventory, to name a few. On top of this, there are at least three key players who pursue their interests: the shipper, the broker, and the carrier. To make such an all-encompassing collaboration tool that would cater for the needs of all parties involved, our logistics software development team had to get up to speed on all the complex nuances.

We took on the following challenges:
Design an easy-to-use collaborative platform where interaction is not limited to only one part of the supply chain, but links all the participants of the cargo management process
Provide each group of interest with their all-important tools for efficient performance
Implement a full range of features for a multifunctional web and mobile service
Quickly understand complex business rules for managing orders and shipments
Process data that was neither properly maintained, nor organized in a single place
Implement unique analytical math models
