We appreciate our customers’ support in maintaining our creditworthiness with carriers during reduced credit periods.”

In the freight forwarding industry, several trends have emerged that are worth noting. For example, there is a move toward digitalization, with increasing integration of AI & ML to improve efficiency and capabilities while reducing the need for human hours. Real-time analytics and tracking have also improved thanks to advanced technologies such as RFID chips, enabling managers and industry leaders to identify and anticipate problems, and offer precise delivery times to customers. Additionally, last-mile delivery remains a challenge for logistics companies, but there are efforts to make it more efficient, including the deployment of autonomous drones and overhauls to supply chain models.
“We at Orangestar Logistics have embraced the use of AI and ML in our operations. We have automated our process of extracting and generating key information for shipping documents, allowing for more efficient and accurate data management. Our connectivity with Air Lines & Shipping Lines and other partners has improved, enabling a seamless exchange of information. We have also created a central hub for simplifying coordination with all parties involved in the booking process. This has not only improved our operations but also allowed us to provide better services to our customers,” he states.
