Key 2023 Logistic Insights
As the world economy continues to globalise, businesses are increasingly relying on logistics and transportation. A result of this is the rising demand for efficient and reliable fleet management solutions is on the rise. Here are some key fleet trends to look out for in 2023.
Use of autonomous vehicles
Autonomous vehicles are starting to be used more frequently in logistics, as they can help to improve efficiency and safety. While fully autonomous trucks are not yet commercially available, we expect to see more use of semi-autonomous trucks in 2023, particularly for tasks such as highway driving.
Growing demand for electric vehicles
Electric vehicles are becoming more popular in the logistics industry, due to their lower operating costs and environmental benefits. In addition, advances in battery technology are making electric vehicles more viable for long-distance hauling. As a result, we expect to see a growing number of electric trucks on the road in 2023.
Increased focus on sustainability
Sustainability is becoming more important to logistics businesses, as they look to reduce their environmental impact. We expect to see a growing number of logistics businesses investing in green initiatives, such as using electric vehicles or adopting fuel-efficient driving practices.
New regulations and standards
As the logistics industry continues to evolve, we expect to see new regulations and standards put in place. These could include changes to fuel efficiency standards for trucks, as well as new safety requirements for autonomous vehicles.
Increased use of data and analytics
Data and analytics are becoming increasingly important in the logistics industry, as they can help businesses optimise their operations and make better decisions about their fleet management. In particular, data-driven decision-making will become more important for managing fleet risk, as well as for identifying opportunities for cost savings.
