Real-time transport fill rates based on computer vision & AI
PostNord has initiatives with IoT, AI, sensors and now also computer vison. Linehaul transports between terminals is a vital part of PostNord operation as one of the largest logistic providers in the Nordic region. One of the most important KPIs in optimizing the total kilometers driven is the fill rate of each individual transport. The current method of measuring didn’t meet the validity requirements and involved manual registration. Together with TCS, PostNord has developed a state-of-the-art, real-time, friction-free computer vision & AI monitoring solution based on already implemented IT infrastructure.
