Convoy’s Chief Technology Officer, Dorothy Li, was recently invited to the popular AI in Business Podcast, hosted by Emerj’s Head of Research, Daniel Faggella.

Together, they discuss the topic of predicting freight shipments with artificial intelligence. Dorothy explores a logistics use case for AI capabilities in predictive inventory and the impact it is having on manufacturing writ large. Still, there are many challenges, among them that truckers and freight carriers don’t have the equipment (mobile apps, GPS) that other last mile and delivery workers have. They also examine where AI can be applied to help schedule deliveries to avoid unplanned downtime.
