A common concern on everyone's mind
in the transportation and logistics industry is the driver shortage. But another hot
topic is advancing technology and whether someday drivers or any human element
will be needed at all.
Given recent technological developments, that day seems a whole lot sooner
than it did a year ago. In fact, DHL Chief
Commercial Officer Bill Meahl recently
blogged about how his company aims
to integrate self-driving technology
in its global operations. This year, the
company will test self-driving vehicles
for last-mile delivery.
Additionally, the company has an
ongoing research program in partnership with the U.K. government involving
"platooning" technology for semitrucks. This would enable semi-autonomous vehicles to follow each other in a
closely packed convoy.
But Meahl says the company does not
plan to have autonomous tech replace
its drivers anytime soon.
In our own magazine, you can read on
page 20 about drone and bot technolo-

gies, and how they will likely be tested
more commonly in rural areas instead of
metro hubs. However, "It's likely drone
deliveries won't become truly widespread until 2025," BoldIQ CEO Roei
Ganzarski says.
With these technologies still in early
stages, it would appear that we still have
a ways to go before humans become
obsolete. But we'd still like to hear if you
think that it appears that way as well.
