A Fireside Chat with Two Industry Thought Leaders

Day #2 of the Final Mile Forum began with a jolt – a look to our industry’s future in a Fireside Chat with Dr. James A. Tompkins and Vijaya Rao. This thought-provoking discussion was moderated by Mark Cossack, President of Priority Courier Experts and a CLDA Board Member.

"I’ve spoken at a number of this association’s conferences and, as I remember it, quite a few years ago I forecasted Amazon would have the capability for one-day delivery by 2020. Well, it turns out that they out-did my prediction and it’s happening now. The big lesson here is that one-day is not about transportation. It’s about inventory deployment. The most important element is inventory, then logistics. It’s a balance between getting the inventory close to the customer without building up huge stock in a warehouse. The one-day thing is a big deal. Those of you in this room who know how to manage inventory are in a great position to capture the market lift from one-day delivery. For those of you who aren’t, I strongly suggest you start now to be ready for a year from now when this wave really hits the shore."

Robotics, flexible automation, autonomous vehicles and the like are no longer just something “everyone else” must be doing. Offerings and awareness have continued to increase, especially as the perceived shortage of qualified and affordable labor continues.

As a result, we’re still not close to “lights out” manufacturing with completely automated processes.

Mike Futch, president of MHI member Tompkins Robotics, said any thought related to where we actually are “depends on who you ask.”

“The fact of the matter is, it’s progressing very rapidly,” Futch said. “The increased capabilities of robotic automation and the lowering of costs have created a new tool that we can use in the evolution of supply chain distribution, warehousing and order fulfillment.”
