    The Behind-the-Scenes Adoption of Automation

    There’s no more loaded term in technology than automation: a concept with the power to kill millions of jobs or unlock billions of dollars of systemic inefficiency. While the idea of automation fundamentally changing the logistics industry — among dozens of other industries — is de rigeur, the reality is that most of the actual movement on automation is happening far beneath the surface. That doesn’t mean automation isn’t changing the shape of global logistics, but it does mean that its impact is still largely obscured from public view. In this session, companies focused on the implementation of automation for specific functions — from payment and trade finance access to booking processes — will discuss how prevalent automation already is, what the next phase will look like, and what benefits it may hold for those buyers looking to invest in technology.
