13 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE VOLUME 10, ISSUE 3 EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES TAKE THE LEAD IN DISTRIBUTION, Will Quinn, First published February 06, 2023 The distribution industry has been around for quite a long time and can sometimes be slow to change. It is best to look at these emerging technologies as tools you can use, like a forklift. You wouldn’t think of trying to move pallets around a warehouse without using forklifts, yet some in our industry remain skeptical about new technology. Emerging technologies in the distribution industry are transforming the way goods are transported and delivered. These innovations are making distribution processes more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable. One of the more interesting emerging technologies in the distribution industry is drones for last-mile delivery.

This technology has the potential to revolutionize the distribution industry by reducing the need for ground-based transportation and enabling faster, more efficient delivery. OPENING L INES
