We've likely all encountered grand assertions about how artificial intelligence (AI) can revolutionize supply chain operations, but separating the hype from tangible results can be challenging. However, machine learning, a powerful subset of AI, is already delivering concrete benefits in transportation. This blog explores four specific use cases showcasing how machine learning empowers businesses with greater visibility and control over their supply chains.

Enhanced Geofences with Machine Learning

Geofences, virtual boundaries triggering alerts upon vehicle or personnel movement, offer real-time visibility but struggle with scalability and accuracy.  Traditionally, defining these geofences can be a cumbersome process, and their effectiveness relies heavily on precision. Shippeo's machine learning algorithms refine geofences by creating smaller, more precise boundaries based on actual data. This translates to more accurate tracking and fewer false alarms, empowering businesses to focus on critical events.

Predictive Truckload ETAs: Machine Learning for Precision

Traditional Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) calculations often fall short due to dynamic factors like driver behavior and facility dwell time. This lack of precision can lead to disruptions in downstream operations. Shippeo employs machine learning to predict truckload ETAs with greater accuracy. By drawing from extensive historical data on traffic patterns, weather conditions, and individual driver performance, Shippeo's system provides dynamically updated insights, allowing businesses to better plan and optimize their operations.

Improved Ocean Carrier Data with Machine Learning

Reliable milestone data is crucial in ocean shipping for informed decision-making.  Unfortunately, traditional methods of tracking ocean freight can be imprecise and provide limited visibility. Shippeo leverages machine learning to generate precise berthing geofences and satellite tracking, delivering real-time insights into vessel movements. This empowers businesses to react proactively to delays or disruptions, ensuring a smoother flow of goods.

Predictive Ocean ETAs: Navigating Uncertainty with Machine Learning

Ocean shipping is inherently unpredictable due to factors like weather and port congestion.  Shippeo's machine learning-powered ETAs offer a solution.  By analyzing historical data on sailing schedules, port congestion patterns, and individual vessel performance, the system provides detailed insights that empower shippers to proactively manage their supply chains. This allows for better allocation of resources and helps to mitigate the impact of unforeseen delays.

Machine Learning: From Speculation to Impact

Amidst the buzz surrounding AI and machine learning, discerning their practical implications can be daunting. However, as demonstrated by Shippeo's use cases, these technologies offer tangible benefits. By leveraging machine learning's power to extract insights from vast datasets, businesses can make informed decisions and optimize their supply chain operations effectively.  Machine learning is a key driver of Artificial Intelligence in Transportation, and its impact on the industry is only just beginning.
