Episode 4 MOVE IT
Behind every delivery of anything to anyone, is a hidden world of logistics. Over time, systems have evolved and today we are at the precipice of AI – could this help transform delivery without harm to the planet? Can we upskill our truckies into techie truckies? What about drone delivery? Welcome to the wonderful world of warehouse robotics, driverless trucks, and endless flow of fast moving consumer goods. This episode Host Stephanie Bendixsen talks to some of the best systems designers who are already two steps ahead: Managing Director of Premonition AI, Brad Lorge and Eva Ross, CMO of super delivery service Sendle. Our resident Reporter Sara Isakka makes a special visit to global entrepreneur CEO of ShowPo, Jane Lu, to ask how she handles shipping her products to over 100 countries, and learns about upcoming innovations such as the world’s first Automated Port, at Patrick Stevedore, revolutionizing imports and exports for the benefit of customers of the future.
