“Global logistics spending is set to soar to $10.6trn by 2020 with transportation accounting for the majority at 70%.

The startup is looking to strengthen its integration capabilities to offer a complete plug & play model to businesses.
The most recent release includes data-driven routing engine which uses AI & natural language processing technologies to drastically improve the address quality challenge by building geo-coding & predictability engine that suggests and self-corrects customer addresses, based on historical data and user behavior regionally. This could reduce last-mile cost by 8-15% and reduce the dependency of trained resources for deliveries. FarEye also launched the industry’s most advanced actionable control tower which monitors truck’s movement, predicts ETA engine through its advanced machine learning engine and intelligent alerts for exceptions.
