As technology progress continues at breakneck speed, we decided to ask some supply chain experts what they believed the top 3 technology trends that would define logistics and the supply chain from 2015-2020 are.
Our first supply chain consultant is Dr. Steve Brady, the CEO of Supply Chain Innovations Today, a leading supply chain consulting firm, a former Operations and Supply Chain professor at Penn State University and a popular online blogger on multiple sites, including eft.com.
 
Technology Trend 1: Uberization of Trucking
What role will this play in supply chains: This has the potential to remove inefficiencies in backhaul
Why is this so important? Empty backhauls (dead heading) has been an intransigent problem for some time. Several different approaches have been tried, including VICS’ “Empty Miles” Program, but with limited success. I believe that, with the use of mobile technologies, the ability to make the “love connections” will be far easier. 
 
Technology Trend 2: Augmented Reality
What role will this play in supply chains: The ability to “see” things that aren’t there will inform operations.
Why is this so important? Google Glass has opened our eyes (pun intended) to the possibilities that exist for providing richer information to improve our operations. Whether it is enhancing pick operations in a warehouse by “showing” what is to be picked, or providing the history of an item being viewed (think, maintenance/driving history on a vehicle), or delivering “on demand” instructions for maintenance operations in the field, the concept of an augmented space is transforming supply chains.
 
Technology Trend 3: Automated Vehicles
What role will this play in supply chains: Think Google Car – but in trucking. Truly maximizing delivery capability, although this trend’s fulfillment is still 10-20 years away.
Why is this so important? As mentioned before, the “deadhead” problem has wasted miles, and fuel, and drivers hours. Imagine if we can not only find the next closest pickup but that we are able to have the vehicle operating nearly autonomously 24 hours/day. This applies to not just the “big rigs” but to regular delivery vehicles. A delivery can go out for Home Depot, and then the next delivery may be from a sub sandwich shop, or Best Buy–or even delivering packages to FedEx or the post-office from a residence. The opportunities here are truly endless.
