Technology in the hands

Stifel has released its top 10 “game-changers” for the new year, and SC Digest has summarised the top five. The first is the somewhat ironic problem that while automation is taking over jobs, there is still a shortage of manual labour. And while labour is in short supply, prices are high, thereby bringing down the relative cost of technology. Other issues are the problems of last-mile delivery, especially when combined with infrastructure originally designed to do something different; Amazon’s insourcing and its effect on the market, electric vehicles and the growing use of technology and the speed of market transformation.

    Do you think automation can effectively and reliably replace manned trucks for house and business transportation and/or vehicle transport.

    It’s very interesting to see how everything keeps on changing every single day. So intrigued by the electric vehicles that are coming in the future.
