Al-Futtaim Logistics Automotive: Innovating to Go From Good to Great
Al-Futtaim Logistics Automotive is on journey of innovation, automation and digital transformation making use of cutting edge technologies to improve speed, reliability, safety and cost effectiveness.
In a typical automotive logistics scenario a vehicle goes through 40 different touch points as it moves from port to customer. Manual processes have limited visibility in this chain and it is difficult to monitor vehicles as they move from stage to different stage of the delivery process.
Al-Futtaim Logistics’ technology solutions overcome these limitations and provide greater visibility resulting in more safety, speed and damage control. The company is using technology to reduce express delivery times from a typical 48-hours to a world-class 6 hours.
Using IoT-based yard management techniques involving ultra-wide-band technology, data analytics and connected vehicles, Al-Futtaim has taken Automotive Logistics to the next level of innovation, speed and efficiency.
