Transportation and Logistics

The movement of people and goods from one place to another involves a lot of uses for LI, including the planning, operation, and maintenance of transportation systems, as well as the management of supply chains and the flow of goods and services. Self-driving cars and drones in the logistics sector are already a reality and they benefit greatly from LI. Different transportation services, such as journey planners, make use of LI and APIs to provide a smooth user experience. Mobility data can be used to understand e.g. how where people are concentrated depending on the hour of the day, how people move around during a city festival or -like in the recent years- during a pandemic. 

On this page you can find services that LIH partners are providing for Transportation and Logistics industries and public organizations.
