Industry 4.0 do not need Freight Forwarders.
It is a strong sentence, and it is not true. Industry 4.0 needs Freight Forwarders but they have to a change of role. From “defending midfilders” to a “playmakers” that allow clients to reach the set goals.
In the same way of a playmaker or a general on the battlefield, Freight Forwarders need to have a full control of the operations, they need materials, means and people under control. And data.
Today data are the key of success. Timely information, full data, business rule managers, online and batch “ex post” process analysis are the tools needed by the Freight Forwarder to manage the logistic flow and take early action in case of problem.
To do it the Freight Forwarder has to ask its business partner to digitize data and information, and maintain them digitized in the whole logistic process from the shipper to the consignee. It is “the hub”, so it can ask shippers, ground transportation companies, ground handler agents, airlines, shipping companies and customs to do it, and It will be recognized as the Orchestra Conductor.
In this scenario each Logistic Operator is asked to maintain data digitized but it will share the benefits that come from this.
