“Innovations in cold chain telematics have revolutionized the supply chain landscape by providing real-time monitoring and enhanced data analytics. This has led to increased adoptions in the food and beverage, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries as supply chains look to ensure product integrity and adhere to regulatory compliance. The capability to track temperature, humidity, and location throughout the supply chain reduces spoilage and boosts customer confidence in product quality,” says Adhish Luitel, supply chain management and logistics principal analyst at ABI Research.

“Beyond regulatory compliance, food waste mitigation is also a key enabler for cold chain monitoring growth in the food industry. Between 7% and 15% of all foods spoil during transport, especially imported produce. The recent rise in food imports into the United States and Canada from Mexico and Central America has further heightened the need for ‘smart’ containers equipped with real-time tracking solutions,” said Adhish Luitel, Supply Chain Management & Logistics Senior Analyst at ABI Research.

“For cold chain management to be effective, it must be enabled by technological solutions, which are critical for maintaining the quality and safety of food products. The need for real-time monitoring across the food supply chain has been exacerbated due to the regulatory compliance requirements in North America and Europe. This includes all stakeholders from farmers and first-line handlers to logistics providers, food manufacturers, and retailers,” explains Adhish Luitel, Supply Chain Management & Logistics Senior Analyst at ABI Research.

“The advancement of dash cams surround view cameras in terms of capabilities has led to increased use cases to enable driver safety and, in turn, increased adoption in commercial fleets. Regulatory initiatives in North America, Europe, and China are also bringing more tech into commercial fleets,” says Adhish Luitel, supply chain management and logistics senior analyst at ABI Research. “The level of transparency that video telematics solutions provide enables drivers and fleet managers to track critical infractions during a trip and over time—information that can increase accountability and encourage safer driving habits. It can also reduce liability, as video can be stored as evidence in case of accidents.”

Seaports are rapidly turning to automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in their search for more productive automation to transport containers and loads to and from ships, according to a study from analyst firm ABI Research. But to gain the full benefits of the investment, facilities must also apply change management tactics to control related variables like an initial loss in productivity as workers learn to use the new equipment, the New York-based firm said. The trend comes as the maritime industry has drastically surged its automation efforts in the wake of global seaport congestion. Other autonomous horizontal transport modes that are also seeing a bump in orders include gantries, automated port gates, and stacking cranes, ABI said. As a result, AGV seaport deployments worldwide will have a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 26% from 2022 to 2030, and exceed 370,000 global deployments by 2027, the report found. “Automation improves port operations' reliability, consistency, and workplace security.

“Although port congestion (mostly on the West Coast ports) [is] easing, labor strikes definitely aren’t helping. Rail strikes (especially in the U.S.) will cause an added amount of pressure on the trucking industry. And due to the staffing complexities in trucking, we will see more congestion and bottlenecks, not just within maritime, but other modalities such as rail and trucking as well. In addition, lots of warehouses are short-staffed as well,” says Adhish Luitel, senior analyst, ABI Research.

The warehouse robotics market is booming, but so too is the robotic delivery market. According to data from ABI Research, worldwide robotic last-mile delivery revenues will surpass $70 million this year. But that is just a drop in the bucket compared to the growth expected in the market. The firm’s research found that these tiny sidewalk robots will grow into a $670 million market by 2030, delivering as much as $3.3 billion worth of goods. The market is being driven by profitability concerns among retailers, restaurants and other delivery providers as more consumers seek out last-mile delivery of online orders directly to their homes. “As inflation and vehicle costs rise exponentially, these businesses are struggling to raise prices on wary consumers and businesses, while needing to protect margins,” explained Adhish Luitel, senior analyst of supply chain management and logistics at ABI Research. “Key initiatives include reducing labor, vehicle maintenance costs and fuel requirements while scaling to meet demand and customer expectations.”
