Using AI & ML to Improve E-Commerce Logistics Operations

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have a huge potential to improve operational efficiencies and open new opportunities for growth. AI & ML’s role in e-commerce logistics are especially critical for businesses today. Using artificial intelligence in e-commerce logistics involves employing computers capable of performing activities that require human intelligence. Machine learning relates to a computer’s ability to learn from input without being explicitly programmed. One of the key benefits of using artificial intelligence in e-commerce logistics is to increase delivery efficiency. AI & ML tools can analyze previous user behavior data, learn from it, and then help businesses optimize existing processes. Last but not least, by utilizing AI and ML, businesses can free up their staff’ time to focus on more sophisticated, cognitively demanding initiatives.

According to latest reports, China is leading the cross-border e-commerce logistics market, with 35% of respondents globally having purchased from there. The United States comes in second with 14%, followed by Germany and the United Kingdom with 12% and 8%, respectively, forming the ‘Big 4’ e-commerce markets. According to data studies in e-commerce logistics, Amazon is the world’s largest e-retailer, accounting for 26% of current cross-border sales. As an effect of COVID and Brexit, domestic e-commerce seems to be growing faster than cross-border e-commerce.
