It’s happening. Like it was predicted in Terminator 2 nearly 30 years ago, the machines are uprising. Artificial intelligence is everywhere. Likely in your own hand, on your wrist, or in your pocket at this very moment. The improvement in tech has rendered many human processes useless. Recently, organizations are making the move towards automated systems, getting rid of the human component and replacing them with artificial intelligence- aka, robots.
Thankfully, not all of our robot friends are Terminator status (yet). In fact, our DFW delivery drivers think these strange AI implements are worth keeping:
Man’s best friend- Robot dogs are being equipped with artificial intelligence to “show” affection towards their owners. With indoor/outdoor navigation, your robot pet won’t run into walls or wander into the street. Oh, and there’s no doggy doody duty!
Bees- As we all know, bees are super important to pollination, but they’re dying out from pesticides, viruses, and other nutrition problems. These robot bees use GPS and cameras to mimic bees’ pollination practices.
Missing persons- Computer programmers have written algorithms to search for people who are missing after natural disasters. Instead of sorting through hours of drone footage, these programs do the image searching and can find the victims within a matter of hours.
Bionic body parts- Arms, legs, hands, and fingers- there are success stories all over medical news about using artificial intelligence to give people back their senses and restore movement.
Recycling robots- In an effort to sort through refuse faster and more efficiently, recycling robots have been used to improve recycling efforts. Robots are positioned over the conveyer belts and can quickly and accurately sort between recyclables and trash.
Sure, the increase in technology over the past several decades has changed our lives for the better. This is especially true for your transportation and logistics processes. Here at Eagle Express, we’ve incorporated the changing technology into our everyday services.
Our app, for example, gives customers a real time view of their past and current orders. It even allows them to track deliveries and create new ones in real time. Thanks to evolving tech, Eagle Express can also store and manage your inventory. State of the art software helps us get the proper items to your customers, ensuring your products stay stocked, but not overstocked.
Technology has also given our refrigerated deliveries a more scientific approach. Thanks to cold technology, we can ensure your temperature sensitive items stay at a specific temperature for the duration of their journey. Tech improvements have also made it easier to make changes during your delivery process. Our dispatchers can reach our drivers with important changes in route, meaning you don’t have to stress over those last minute additions or address alterations.
However, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
As many big name transportation providers are seeking to replace humans in the T&L processes, consider the benefit of a friendly, trustworthy, human courier. Here at Eagle Express, we’ve been serving the Metroplex for over 35 years. It allows us to adjust to the changes in customer needs while still providing stellar service to a variety of customers.
Sure, let the robots take over your house cleaning, maybe even let them handle the grocery shopping, but when it comes to your transportation and logistics needs in DFW, keep it human. Stick with the professionals at Eagle Express.
No matter what time of day you contact us, you’re treated to a real live human, never a robotic phone tree. Our goal is to build relationships with our clients to create a lasting partnership for your delivery needs.
