Maximizing Efficiency and Scalability in Transportation with AI-Powered Processes

August 24 2023

5 min read

In the transportation and logistics industry, the reliance on traditional paperwork for essential processes like bills of lading and customer orders (among others) has often proven to be a bottleneck. Manual document processing methods are synonymous with inefficiency and errors, inevitably leading to costly cleanup and re-work efforts.

But that’s where Hyperscience comes in.

How Hyperscience Helps

As a provider of AI-powered back office automation, Hyperscience aims to revolutionize these manual processes by automating the extraction, analysis, and processing of the data in these documents. Here are a few ways harnessing the power of AI in your operations can help your business.

1. Achieve Sustainable Growth

Hyperscience’s AI models are created for your own enterprise data, and they excel at automating routine and manual tasks that consume valuable time and resources. This automation leads to streamlined processes, fewer human errors, and increased productivity. And as organizations become more efficient, they can allocate their saved resources toward strategic initiatives and innovation, setting the stage for growth.

Additionally, Hyperscience was designed to scale seamlessly as business operations expand. Whether it’s handling seasonal increases in volume or unexpected surges in customer demand, Hyperscience’s AI models adapt to these changing needs without compromising performance. This scalability supports organizations in achieving growth without constant increases in headcount.

2. Improve Customer Service

AI-powered processes also offer organizations a plethora of opportunities to enhance customer service. With Hyperscience, this takes the form of drastically reduced document processing times. Automating the management of inbound and outbound documents means quicker responses to customer inquiries, and also minimizes the likelihood of human errors in tasks like data entry or order processing. This ensures consistency in service delivery—reducing the chance of customer dissatisfaction due to mistakes.

3. Stay Competitive in the Market

Competitive differentiation is a critical aspect for businesses to consider when adopting any new technology. Standing out from the competition is paramount for sustained success, and adopting AI technology can provide organizations with a range of competitive advantages. Some of these include:

  • An early Adopter Advantage: By implementing solutions like Hyperscinece ahead of the curve, organizations can establish themselves as innovators and forward thinkers rather than followers.
  • Market Leadership: Pioneering AI adoption positions the organization as a market leader and influencer. Occupying this role allows the organization to shape industry trends, collaborate with other thought leaders, and contribute to the growth of an industry.
  • Long-Term Viability: Industries are progressively moving towards automation and AI integration. Those that lag behind risk becoming obsolete. By embracing AI technology, organizations signal their intention to thrive in the digital era.

But competitive differentiation through AI adoption goes beyond simply adopting a new technology. It’s about cultivating a company identity centered around innovation, efficiency, and adaptability. This not only attracts customers, but also inspires a culture of continuous improvement with the organization.

So Where Should You Start?

The most obvious entry point for AI in transportation and logistics is in reducing manual data entry. There are many legacy data processes in the industry that still require “butts in seats” in order to key in data.

With Hyperscience, all this manual effort can be automated in a way that continuously learns. Companies can leverage this platform to process data from various sources, such as bills of lading, customer orders, packing lists, and shipping notices, thereby freeing up employee time for more strategic tasks.

How One Organization Transformed Document Processing for Enhanced Efficiency and Growth

Automating Transcription of Complex Transportation Documents

An industry leader in supply chain management identified and transcribed more than 36M data points in the last year, automating the processing of some of the most complex transportation documents in the industry—without the use of a single template.

The Challenge

This company’s manual document processing methods were too labor-intensive, inefficient, and prone to errors. Operational bottlenecks not only hindered opportunities for sustainable expansion, but also strained customer relationships.

The Impact of Manual Methods

This organization needed a solution that could address two key areas:

Firstly, data accuracy was vital. The company had SLAs to uphold, and manual processes were resulting in missed deadlines. Higher accuracy out of the gate would ensure faster processes, fewer SLA breaches, and happier customers.

Next, the company wished to cut costs and training time. Data scientists and engineers proved to be cost prohibitive and difficult to find, so they needed a solution that was easy to implement and use with minimal tech expertise.

Advancing Transportation and Logistics with Artificial Intelligence

In just 30 days, Hyperscience proved it was possible to produce more accurate and future proof models, while simultaneously providing the underlying architecture for greater AI expansion in the future.

Improved data accuracy, streamlined training, and simplified technical requirements have enhanced the company’s operational effectiveness. And as they aim to further expand their services, Hyperscience’s capabilities provide a solid foundation for growth.

This collaboration with Hyperscience showcases the potential of intelligent document processing to revolutionize transportation operations. With accurate data processing, swift training, and minimal technical barriers, the organization is well-positioned to capitalize on new market opportunities in the transportation industry.
