What You Will Learn

Supply chain executives continue to explore the value that UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) or “drones” provide, with their implications going beyond last mile delivery. Many industry experts agree that these aerial robots will be adopted into mainstream of supply chain operations within the next six to twelve months. There are many factors to consider, including advances in technology, regulations, and operational impact. During this session, we will explore practical examples of how companies are getting value beyond just delivering packages and show how organizations can set up a highly professional and low-risk commercial drone operation.

Key Takeaways

• Trailer and container tracking at distribution centers and manufacturing plants
• Finished vehicles tracking for automotive and heavy manufacturing
• High value asset tracking in laydown yards
• Inventory reconciliation inside warehouses
