Yesterday was the first day of Unisys’ Logistics Executive Conference in Nice, France, with client companies such as AirCanada, Air France-KLM, DHL, Delta Air Lines, and IATA meeting to discuss leading practices in air cargo management and information technology. Topics ranged from RFID and other tracking technologies to revenue management and next-generation logistics management systems. Technology innovation was the buzz word in many presentations, and a number of leading practices notably align with Forrester’s vision of dynamic business applications (apps which are “designed for people, built for change”). For example:
A variety of innovative practices from outside industries were also raised to illustrate improvement opportunities in cargo management — including examples from data-driven capacity planning for UK policemen as well as optimized pricing of seafood through gauging supply available via ocean temperatures. While I see many supply chain executives on the hunt for innovative use of business technology, these air cargo clients seem to be above the norm in terms of leveraging outside ideas and best practices for their own improvement initiatives.
