Transportation and logistics
In the transport and logistics sector, 43% of organizations see a role for the application of data science especially in optimizing inventory management. They see the benefit in minimizing inventory, allowing them to invest more in materials, for example. Furthermore, they see the added value of applications that optimize route and transport planning. Here you can think of algorithms that adjust the route in real time on the basis of expected traffic density on the route. But delivery can also be made more efficient by steering to available parking locations in the vicinity of several addresses in busy places with little parking space. This prevents driving around in circles and therefore delays the delivery.
