The supply chain is undergoing a technological revolution. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation in ports and logistics hubs is redefining efficiency and competitiveness in the industry.
SAM Algeciras, a multimodal logistics platform located in the hinterland of the port of Algeciras, is an outstanding example of this transformation. Its warehouses use advanced technologies in perishable logistics and automation in storage processes, in order to significantly improve operational agility and efficiency in the different terminals.
Applications in logistics
The correct incorporation of artificial intelligence in the logistics and industrial sphere opens up a wide range of opportunities for the sector. Some key uses to make the most of its potential are:
- Demand forecasting: This technology can analyse historical sales data, economic factors, market trends and other relevant data to predict future demand for products. This helps companies to adjust their production and inventory management more accurately, thus avoiding overstocking or shortages.
- Transport optimisation: the artificial intelligence tool can help optimise transport routes, taking into account factors such as distance, traffic, legal restrictions and customer preferences. Finding the most efficient routes, minimising delivery times and improving customer satisfaction.
- Intelligent inventory management: Such technology can analyse real-time data on inventory levels, turnover rates and expected demand. This helps to avoid over-recording, reduce storage costs and minimise losses due to obsolete products.
- Predictive maintenance: AI can monitor the condition of supply chain assets, such as machinery and equipment, and predict failures or maintenance needs before they occur. This enables proactive planning of maintenance activities.
A state-of-the-art enclave
This technology is changing the way goods are moved, stored or repaired around the world. AI has proven its ability to drive efficiency, accuracy and speed in a wide range of logistics applications. At SAM Algeciras, they not only adapt facilities and warehouses to these cutting-edge technologies, but also provide specialised training for their workers. This comprehensive approach seeks to chart the most optimal way to offer customers an exceptional service, characterised by speed and efficiency.
