Like every other industry, the logistics space is also in constant evolution. From logistics operations to transportation management, everything related to the logistics industry is on a constant evolution.

An interesting trend to follow is the digital twins concept that leverages the latest in advanced analytics and artificial intelligence technology to help organizations across all industries and verticals aggregate data from multiple sources and utilize that data to predict performance with startling accuracy to deliver actionable intelligence.

When it comes to the logistics sector, firms can use digital twins to create virtual replicas of everything, including warehouses and distribution centers, packaging and containers, individual shipments, and even entire supply chains. These digital twins will enable firms to proactively identify existing or potential supply chain bottlenecks, forecast market volatility and the potential for future disruption, and optimize logistics planning.

Businesses are also adapting to more convenient and sustainable solutions such as electric vehicles and solar-powered operations. The transportation sector, in particular, has turned its attention to cutting-edge freight technologies designed to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.

As such, the industry is filled with various technological trends and solution providers. To help organizations analyze their exact requirements and utilize the best solution provider, we’ve developed this special edition on Top 20 Logistics Solution Providers 2022. Listed below are some of the most innovative and cutting-edge solution providers who are trying to create a difference in the current logistics space.
