AI in logistics

Learn what AI is, how it works and what opportunities it holds for companies in the fields of logistics, intralogistics and supply chain management!

Data & AI projects for the logistics industry

The entire supply chain of logistics companies generates vast amounts of data every day. Artificial intelligence is predestined to exploit this information. AI can help to redevelop methods and behaviours, for example, to generate proactive processes from reactive ones, and to make concrete predictions for the future instead of guesses and rough estimates in the interest of planning security. Of course, it is also possible to concentrate only on existing processes and to optimise manual as well as already automated processes in terms of time. Moreover, instead of following generic standards, services can be personalised and thus made more customer-friendly.

With the help of data and artificial intelligence, we enable our clients to constantly change and adapt in the digital age. We have used our experience from over 1,000 projects in the last 8 years to develop a holistic system for Data & AI projects - our [at] Data Journey. With this enable our clients to develop their own strengths and accompany them on their way.

Application areas of AI & Data Science in logistics

The use of AI is already having a massive impact on logistics processes. In the following, we present some fields in which artificial intelligence can be used:


Predictive Maintenance

With the help of predictive maintenance methods, you can detect faults at an early stage.

Quality Analytics

Analyse your quality data to find correlations and derive metrics.

Arrival forecast

Use statistical models to predict and track the expected arrival time of the vehicle at the POI

Demand Forecasting

Using machine learning models, you can predict your customers' transport needs.


IoT / Connected Devices

Collect real-time data from your fleet for condition monitoring or predictive maintenance.


Use mathematical optimisation models to improve the allocation of transport resources.

"One example shows how striking the advantages of artificial intelligence can be in intralogistics: In one store, 7.5 per cent of items are not available due to manual ordering because of shelf gaps. The error rate drops to five per cent when special AI software makes recommendations to a human scheduler. If the possibility of human corrections is dispensed with and artificial intelligence performs the warehouse and logistics tasks completely autonomously, so the error rate drops to 0.5 per cent."

Facts about artificial intelligence in logistics

A study by INFORM and LOGISTIK HEUTE reveals interesting figures around Data Science & AI in the logistics industry.


About 90 % of the respondents hope that AI will improve their Market position improved.


However, only 26 % state that they are AI active in their logistics processes insert.


Reason: 54 % of the Employees lack expertise, only 12 % indicate good knowledge.
