Challenges Facing the Logistics Industry

In today’s customer-oriented, digitised society, the Transport & Logistics industry is under constant pressure to remain competitive, deliver high quality services to customers and adopt innovative ways to optimise their processes.

One obvious requirement for any Logistics business is the need to keep track of what is going on in real-time, making Voice over IP a very useful technology.

VoIP for Logistics delivers:

  • Access to voicemail and call-taking from the warehouse floor to call centres and business offices

  • Reduced phone service fees and charges

  • The ability to record calls; aiding supervisory staff in ensuring that customers’ needs are well supported. Voice recordings can also be consulted during the investigation of any disputes that are raised

The Only Way is Digital for Our Government

Innovative technology is gaining momentum and driving a transformation of the public sector; slashing costs and upgrading services.

The Technology sector has joined forces with the UK Government to pledge an investment of nearly £1 billion, to develop new AI (artificial intelligence) technologies here in the UK. 

The AI Sector Deal, which has over 50 private sector participating businesses, will contribute £300 million, with another £300 million provided by the government. The remaining £400+ million will come from existing government grants.[1]

In 2017, Notting Hill Carnival saw the Metropolitan Police use AI to drive their facial recognition process and cross reference with other crime data to identify likely offenders. This is one example of an explosion in new technology across the public sphere with the next phase utilising technology to rethink, reshape and reinvent how the government works. The new model will include use of blockchain, machine-learning, drones, robotics and IoT, thus providing vital data in real-time.

Capitalising on IoT in the Public Sector



The Internet of Things (IoT) is already having a profound impact on our lives, with the word ‘Smart’ preceding everything from watches and speakers to fridges and lightbulbs. While internet connected devices have been commonplace in households for a number of years, more and more devices are working their way into the workplace. Statista predict that the number of connected devices will surpass 30 billion by 2020
[1] with more than 65% of enterprises adopting IoT products. 

Gartner estimates that internet-connected things will outnumber humans 4-to-1 in the next 24 months

How will the Networking and Communications Sector incorporate Drones?

Drone technology has the potential to increase UK GDP by £42 billion by 2030, according to new research from PwC.

The research estimates there will be more than 76,000 drones in use across UK skies by 2030. More than a third of these could be utilised by the public sector (including in areas such as defence, health and education).

There are significant opportunities for economic gains across all sectors, but the GDP uplift generated by drones is forecast to have a considerable impact on the public sector with an increase of 2.3%, amounting to around £11.4bn.
