Logistics handles the movement of physical goods in the real world, and the real world is an inherently messy place. The result of this “messiness” is staggering – $80 billion in annual losses in the US alone. Administrative errors and manual data entry cause most of these losses. To enable a new era of supply chain efficiency, we need a way to seamlessly connect each item being shipped with its digital representation. Using computer vision at the edge, Kargo is building the connective tissue between the physical world of freight and the digital ecosystem used to manage it. In this talk, we will explain how Kargo is using computer vision to tackle critical weak links in the logistics industry. We will also identify some of the key challenges encountered when applying computer vision in the real-world environment of warehouses and distribution centers, and explore how Kargo has overcome these challenges to create a robust solution.
