Have you ever wondered about the processes that go into delivering your vehicle? Rest assured that there is a lot going on in automotive logistics. You might think it’s as simple and smooth as your usual online shopping, but there’s quite a process going on before your car can arrive at its final destination.

Automotive logistics and transport services

Let’s first see what automotive logistics really is.

The automotive supply chain is made up of all stakeholders. This includes businesses and individuals that are relevant to the automotive industry, including international and commercial shipping, storage, and even local delivery professionals.

This whole process involves the active mobility of all auto parts, including components and spare parts, as well as finished products. In addition, the active involvement of organizations such as maintenance and repair providers is also essential for the proper functioning of the entire chain. Sthe services of organizations such as Autobedrijf Geesteren play an important role in maintaining the quality of our vehicles. They bring their expertise to ensure that vehicles are in the best condition at all times.

Once you receive the car, there is the expert servicing aspect of the auto service. If you are in the transportation industry, you will understand why you need professional services. It will be essential to keep the vehicles in perfect working order.

The automotive industry has long been one of the most profitable industries. So, in 2022, it is expected to expand further as new technologies are introduced.

Below are some of the things we can expect from this industry.

Automotive logistics forecast

2020 and 2021 have seen major disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Some companies had to close, thus affecting the supply. Social distancing and quarantines made it impossible to continue working as usual. But now the world is starting to adjust to normal.

While there might not be a full return to normal anytime soon, things are looking up. We can expect interesting trends and solutions to come into play and athe players in the automotive industry have a lot to look forward to.

The auto dealership expects transportation demand to increase as operations resume. There is also an opportunity to partner with logistics companies. The challenge will be to ensure punctual deliveries and reduce lead times.

But that’s not all. The auto industry experienced a downturn during the outbreak of the pandemic. There has been a disruption in the auto manufacturing and supply chain. Fortunately, 2022 could see the resumption of services. There is great positivity in the industry as players gear up to fill in the gaps.

Autonomous vehicles to have an impact

The interest in autonomous vehicles is not new. But, the focus has been largely on the consumer, rather than the logistics industry. There is growing interest in the impact of these cars in the transport sector. Large logistics companies like UPS and DHL are making a foray into determining the viability of self-driving delivery cars. Companies see benefits in terms of increased efficiency and lower operating costs.

Autonomous vehicles can meet a significant challenge in the supply chain. The American Trucking Association estimates a shortage of approximately 80,000 truck drivers. The situation is so dire that it could double by 2030. Lack of drivers means goods are not reaching shelves or customers. This is a big concern that needs to be addressed. But therein lies the opportunity to seek lasting solutions. Self-driving cars can liberate addiction to human labor.

Investor interest in innovations is growing

Autonomous trucks are attracting great interest among investors. Since 2019, they have injected $ 11 billion in startups working on autonomous trucks. One of those companies is Aurora, which is on the way to going public.

Other startups include Embark Trucks, Plus and Simple, Waymo, and Locomation. And traditional truck manufacturers and auto parts dealers aren’t taking the chances. They understand where the industry is going. That’s why many are partnering with tech companies.

It will be interesting to see if the industry can have fully autonomous trucks. It might not happen by 2022, but we can expect plenty of reports on pilots or startups demonstrations.

Role of the Internet and artificial intelligence

Vehicles connected to the Internet will become more and more common as connectivity improves communication. Drivers can get information about road safety, weather, congestion / road conditions, accidents or speed limits.

Remote diagnostics and system updates will be easy with vehicle-to-cloud connectivity. Businesses can monitor and get real-time data on the location of vehicles. Such information increases security and helps predict arrival times. The Internet of Things (IoT) will impact every step of the supply chain. It will improve communication between manufacturers and logistics companies.

Artificial intelligence is already part of the automotive industry. There are many applications, including supply chain optimization and vehicle assembly. AI also takes care of mundane and repetitive tasks. Teams can focus on other key areas. These include research, innovation and design.

Yet not all of these features reveal the full potential of AI in the automotive industry. Technologies have an important role to play in predictive monitoring, quality control and early detection of defects.

AI enables teams to collect data that improves the decision-making process. Logistics companies can use them to make predictions – like the best carriers or modes of transport for maximum reliability and profit. Automakers can forecast demand by understanding the customer’s buying behavior. We predict a future where AI will occupy a much bigger place in the industry.

Overcome the challenges of logistics and transport

As the world moves towards 2022, players in the logistics and transportation sectors face several challenges. The pandemic has big lessons to teach, including the need for better preparedness through strong contingency plans.

Creating agile solutions must take center stage as the new year approaches. The industry needs to look for ways to cut costs, and quick fixes are available in areas such as process automation and the use of AI. Data analysis can, for example, help with route optimization. Real-time data provides insight into road conditions while truckers can navigate the best routes to ensure deadlines are met. AI will improve efficiency, thereby reducing production times. All of these benefits will trickle down to end users.

Innovations such as self-driving cars will increase efficiency. They also provide a contingency plan to avoid issues such as driver shortages. Industry players must work together to find sustainable solutions.

Technologies like blockchain can provide a solution to fraud cases. Transport and logistics companies can better manage inventory. Technology does not allow modification of data without raising a flag.

In addition, real-time information will make it easier for businesses to communicate with customers. Effective inventory tracking and management will improve operations all around.

Final thoughts

2022 will be a period of recovery for many industries. It is clear that the pandemic will cross into the new year. The good news is that businesses are stabilizing again. There will be greater adoption of technologies like IoT, AI, and blockchain. The aim is to increase efficiency at a lower cost.

The automotive and transportation sector has a long way to go. Autonomous vehicles can hit the streets in massive numbers. Perhaps the most exciting will be seeing an autonomous truck. With the level of interest among startups and investors, this may be happening sooner than we can predict.

Can a study succeed and forever change rail freight? Wed, 24 Nov 2021 11:08:18 +0000

FERRMED has published a study on optimizing traffic and modal shift in the EU. The study presents very interesting proposals on how rail freight can reach the 30% modal share by 2030. Among them are the full use and interconnection of European terminals, targeted investments in the European rail network central and eliminating bottlenecks by optimizing traffic on specific hubs.

The study’s proposals seem ideal, and their implementation is described as the only way to achieve the 30% modal split for rail freight by 2030. The study being large, we focused on most critical points for further study. Are FERRMED’s ideas and proposals realistic and achievable?

“From priority projects to the priority network”

Joan Amoros, president of FERRMED, was adamant that with the current situation, European rail freight will not be able to reach the target of 30% by 2030. practically impossible to achieve this target ”, a- he explained.

In fact, there is only one way to achieve this goal. Amoros explained that Europe should stop focusing on priority projects and start prioritizing investments in the continent’s central rail network. “In our study, we identified a 17,800 kilometer network on which the bulk of European rail freight traffic is concentrated,” Amoros said. “This is where we should be focusing with more investment, like more tracks, longer trains, more flexible terminals and bottlenecks removed,” he added.

Hubs with dedicated services

The central European network or “backbone”, as Amoros called it, has the heaviest traffic as it includes some of the main European hubs. Concretely, FERRMED has identified eight “priority” hubs which should attract most of the investment to facilitate traffic within Europe and to and from Asia. These hubs include the Randstad region in the Netherlands, the Rhein-Rhur Gebiet, and Rhein am Frankfurt and Berlin regions in Germany, the Ile de France in France, Barcelona in Spain and Milan in Italy.

According to Amoros, these logistics hubs should experience two developments. Better and more terminals and intense connectivity with dedicated optimized trains that will run on demand. What does it mean? This means that these logistics hubs need to optimize terminal capacity and ensure that intermodal terminals can handle traffic from the road. In addition, unused terminals and marshalling yards should be revived to create more capacity and flexibility in the network.

What about dedicated trains? FERRMED strongly believes that one way to increase rail market share is the unhindered connectivity of priority hubs. This should take place with optimized trains as mentioned above. By optimized trains, the association means longer and faster trains that will run exclusively between hubs using the single-car transport scheme. Concretely, these trains should not have any waiting time in the marshalling yards since they will run on demand and depending on the location of the trucks. “They will be flexible and serve the road,” Amoros said, meaning that trains should run in a way that keeps up with road transport demand to absorb as much freight as possible.

How to implement such a study?

The implementation of these suggestions has two aspects: that of executive authority and that of technicality. Regarding administrative authority, the European Union Railway Agency (ERA) should take responsibility for implementing the plans and the FERRMED system. Indeed, the proposed system must have a pan-European character and the ERA is the most appropriate authority to do so.

As for the technical part, ERTMS is the key. To have a fully functional central rail network without bottlenecks, with a continuous flow of information on terminal capacity, freight positioning and track availability, you need telematics. Without upgrading the entire 17,800 kilometer core rail network with ERTMS technology, this will not be possible. Accordingly, the deployment of ERTMS is the main catalyst for the creation of a single fully integrated rail and road system that will help accelerate modal shift.

Is the theory really feasible?

FERRMED invested a lot of time and resources in this study by analyzing data that has not been used before. However, when it comes to implementing his ideas, the most critical element is feedback from the rail freight industry itself. The association says the European Commission is positive, which applies to shippers and road transport companies.

“Shippers are supporting the idea because they face time-saving issues with trucks, while haulage companies like it because they have issues with drivers, especially on the long ones. distances, ”Amoros explained. However, FERRMED still has no feedback from the rail freight industry on the feasibility of the project.

The rail freight companies should undoubtedly be the first to vote on the study and its aspirations, because it is they who will have to adapt their networks, services and terminals according to this pan-European plan. Are they eager to do it? Will such plans pose problems for their operations and their business? And who will take responsibility for making up for the investments and potential financial losses? These questions still need an answer.

However, Ralf-Charley Schultze, president of the International Union for Combined Rail-Road Transport (IUIR), explained that he found FERRMED’s ideas great. “Their vision and approach is excellent, and of course it is important that combined transport is an integral part of their strategy,” he said. “The UIRR actively supports the concept by sharing its knowledge, but we have to wait for the full results of the study to assess its feasibility,” he added.

Schultze concluded that if FERRMED is to be successful, it has to go to the right places and partner with the right institutions for the UIC Instance. Despite the in-depth study of the association and its exciting proposals, it needs more support to realize its plans or integrate with other European projects to have an impact. Nonetheless, “we still have to wait for the final results of the study to judge,” he said.

What do you think? Will FERRMED’s study ultimately change Europan’s rail freight?

FedEx closes pilot base in Hong Kong, as Cathay Pacific adopts new strategy – Sat, 20 Nov 2021 08:59:00 +0000

FedEx closes pilot base in Hong Kong, as Cathay Pacific adopts new strategy

FedEx, the world’s largest delivery company, announced Wednesday, November 17 that it was closing its crew base in Hong Kong and sending pilots overseas, blaming coronavirus restrictions that left “no clear date “for the return of the city to normal.

The move is the latest setback to Hong Kong’s status as a global logistics hub, as severe travel restrictions and stringent quarantine procedures isolate the city from the rest of the world. FedEx chief system pilot Robin Sebasco said the airline had to “adapt” to the global economic, regulatory and business environment in a company document indicating that a January decision to move its pilots out of town was now permanent.

Industry stakeholders said the move reflected the government’s strict quarantine policies, making it an increasingly difficult operating environment for businesses, although the move was seen as unlikely to be impacted. ‘affect FedEx flights to and from the city, which are largely operated by California-based pilots. While Hong Kong has seen almost no local coronavirus infections for months as part of its zero Covid strategy, the mandatory 21-day hotel quarantine for anyone returning from various countries means the city is effectively cut off from the rest of the world. world, even if the rest of the world reopens.

FedEx confirmed in a statement, with a spokesperson saying the company “will continue to maintain operations in Hong Kong, which are critical to our Asia-Pacific and global network.” She went on to say that the closure of the local pilot base “will allow us to continue to staff our flights to Hong Kong and Asia without being subject to Hong Kong immigration restrictions.”

Cathay Pacific, unlike FedEx, uses a different method.

Cathay Pacific is also a key shareholder in the Asia Air Cargo Terminal at Hong Kong International Airport. Hong Kong FedEx pilots regularly traveled to Guangzhou for cargo flights from FedEx’s regional hub. Likewise, Cathay Pacific plans to move pilots out of town for up to four months to bypass the city’s stringent quarantine requirements.

The government recently tightened exemptions for local cargo pilots after three Cathay Pacific flight crew members were confirmed ill with Covid-19 in Frankfurt, where a suspected outbreak occurred at the hotel de l ‘crew. Earlier Wednesday, Elsa Yuen May-yee, president of the Hong Kong Logistics Association, warned that the government’s recent decision to require 130 Cathay Pacific crew members to undergo 21 days of mandatory quarantine after returning from Frankfurt would have a negative impact on the sector, especially given the increased demand during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Cathay Pacific will demand that all crews exempted from Hong Kong’s strict quarantine protocols self-isolate and avoid gatherings on their return, even though it includes a drastic contingency plan to base pilots overseas for periods of time. months to strengthen the staff. He is currently interviewing pilots to gauge their enthusiasm for the new eventuality, which would see them transferred out of Hong Kong, quarantined between flights to and from the city, and kept away from the local community – and away from their families – for four months at a time.

Pilots are asked if they would like to be located in Dubai, Anchorage, Chicago or other unspecified locations on both coasts of the United States. The new strategy is seen as a workaround for Hong Kong’s tough anti-epidemic efforts, which are making the airline’s flight operations unstable.

Cathay Pacific announced on Monday evening the “tightened” self-isolation rules for its employees, the measures to take effect Wednesday. Three Cathay cargo pilots who were released from quarantine on arrival then tested positive for the coronavirus days later after returning to Hong Kong. Due to the pilots who tested positive, more emphasis is placed on the conduct of the crew during stopovers. All three had spent stopovers at the Hyatt Regency Mainz, a hotel near Frankfurt, the German international airport.

With this exemption potentially compromised due to recent infections, Cathay has encouraged pilots of all its cargo and passenger fleets to express interest in its eventual relocation from ports other than Hong Kong. The airline said the relocation plan could begin as early as January 2022, or it could be scrapped entirely if deemed unnecessary.

  • Kalai has always wanted to work in the aviation industry, being fascinated by its inner workings since childhood. In pursuit of his dream, he obtained a degree in aviation management and is currently interning with a low cost airline, under in-flight policies. In his spare time, he enjoys engaging in recreational activities and watching sports. In the coming years, Kalai intends to continue his studies at a business school before working as an executive for a global airline around the world.

Combine insurance and FreightTech to deal with any cross-border problem Fri, 19 Nov 2021 16:06:54 +0000

The grass is said to be greener on the other side of the fence, but in terms of shipping this is certainly not the case for goods going to Mexico. Cross-border shipping has inherent risks that often cannot be avoided. Different rules and regulations on the fly, it’s best to equip your business with partners who know the ins and outs of shipping on both sides of the border.

Mark Vickers, executive vice president of international logistics at Reliance Partners, partnered with Troy Ryley, president of Redwood Mexico, to share best practices to improve cross-border trade and risk management.

This last point should be addressed first when considering operating across the southern border of the United States. It goes without saying that safety remains the primary concern of carriers in Mexico, especially in its central and western regions.

More than 5,000 cargo thefts were reported in Mexico in the first half of 2021 alone. According to Mexico’s National Public Security System, the most frequently stolen items include food and beverages, clothing and shoes, auto parts, steel, tires and alcoholic beverages.

This poses security risks directly to carriers, but shippers themselves can also suffer, at least financially. Vickers has discussed this in previous articles with FreightWaves, comparing Mexico’s freight insurance requirements to those of the “Wild West.”

Keep in mind that carrier liability in Mexico is almost non-existent, as carriers are not required to provide coverage for shipments, leaving shippers liable for damage. Consider this: US-based motor carriers can be held liable for up to $ 1 million in freight loss, while Canada-based carriers have a maximum liability of $ 2 per pound of freight. In contrast, Mexico only requires carriers to be responsible for $ 0.025 for each pound transported.

It is for these reasons that Ryley urges shippers to use cross-border insurance to mitigate risks south of the border. While beneficial, preventative measures such as carrier checks, trailer tracking technology, and increased facility security are only effective to a limited extent.

“Villains are smart,” Ryley said. “They have jamming units; we have seen jamming units that actually jam the signal of any type of tracking device, whether inside or outside the vehicle.

He explained that it is difficult to transfer the risk of theft when it is rampant across the country. Additionally, Ryley said it can be very difficult to recover stolen assets.

“Reliance Partners has been a fantastic partner, providing us with quick, accurate, timely and responsive quotes,” said Ryley. “We feel very comfortable recommending them to our major clients, the Fortune 500 companies when we need this type of coverage. “

Borderless Coverage provided by Reliance Partners provides cross-border freight insurance for the price of only a fraction of the value of the shipment. Not only is it relatively inexpensive, but the coverage extends to domestic and international shipments of all varieties.

US shippers have found it incredibly easy to deploy each of their loads in Mexico using Borderless Coverage’s shipper interest-based insurance coverage due to its ability to provide full or partial all-risk coverage for their shippers. produced in Mexico and around the world.

“We created Borderless Coverage specifically for shippers, brokers and carriers who needed Mexican cargo insurance; However, we’ve built it on an international platform, so you can get pickup-to-delivery coverage anywhere in the world, ”Vickers said. “Our number one use case is Mexico because of all the uncertainties Ryley discussed. “

With the right coverage in place, shippers can enter the Mexican market with confidence, giving them more time to improve their cross-border operations. The growing need for even greater digital logistics has, in turn, driven many shippers and carriers to Redwood.

The border affects maritime transport in many ways other than security. Differences in regulations and business practices, not to mention language and culture, often cause headaches for shippers.

“I called it a black hole for years,” Ryley said. “The problem is, you have so many points of contact, including US and Mexican carriers, fulfillment agents, US and Mexican customs brokers, Mexican freight forwarders, and point-of-origin shippers, that nobody was able to meet. . This is what we do in Redwood.

Redwood’s technology suite provides users with trucking visibility into US and Mexican carrier operations. This suite includes LoadRunner TMS and its Intuitive Logistics Platform as a Service (LPaaS), which offers plug-and-play logistics technology and freight services to meet your cross-border needs.

“We can connect anyone to anything,” said Ryley, describing his open logistics ecosystem, which offers both real-time digital logistics and 3PL services, as well as platform services for implement and integrate your data supply chain.

“We are incorporated in Mexico and the United States and are fully functional as a cross-border truck brokerage business,” said Ryley. “Redwood also manages US-Mexico customs brokerage as part of our operations, warehousing distribution, and many other services, including technology solutions. “

Vickers said the best way for global shippers to access all-risk shipper insurance in Mexico is through their major freight brokers like Redwood. “It’s great to have a partner like Redwood who understands the technology associated with visibility and the technology now associated with cargo insurance. “
