BLUE BELL, Pa., Oct. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Unisys (NYSE: UIS) has introduced an innovative solution, Unisys Logistics Optimization™, that harnesses the power of quantum computing to address complex logistics optimization challenges in a matter of seconds. As businesses strive to enhance the customer experience, reduce costs, and drive additional revenue, logistics costs continue to escalate. Unisys Logistics Optimization™ is specifically designed to tackle these challenges head-on, leveraging quantum computing, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) to drive optimal business outcomes.
Unisys will be unveiling the remarkable capabilities of Unisys Logistics Optimization™ during a virtual launch event on October 17, 2023. Interested parties are encouraged to register in advance to witness a live demonstration of the solution and gain insights from industry leaders, including renowned global analyst firm IDC and leading trade publication FreightWaves.
Powered by pre-trained models, Unisys Logistics Optimization™ enables rapid generation of answers to complex queries in seconds, a significant leap forward from traditional computational tools that would take years to produce similar results. This cutting-edge solution provides logistics companies, such as air cargo carriers, with optimized plans for efficient and cost-effective packing, storing, and routing of shipments across multiple vehicles.
One of the early adopters of this groundbreaking solution is MASkargo, the cargo arm of Malaysia Aviation Group’s (MAG), which operates globally, serving nearly 100 destinations worldwide. Currently, MASkargo flight planners spend substantial time manually selecting and assigning each shipment, resulting in high operational overhead. Unisys is collaborating with MASkargo to implement a secure and reliable solution that will provide flight planners with a customized graphic cargo plan, maximizing cargo capacity, profitability, and efficient management of priority shipments to meet customer expectations.
“MASkargo is committed to continuously enhancing efficiency and improving the customer experience,” commented Mark Jason Thomas, CEO of MASkargo. “Our collaboration with Unisys represents a crucial milestone in MASkargo’s digitalization journey, leveraging quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to optimize processes, support network planning, and ensure accurate and reliable information flow.”
With more than three decades of experience serving and innovating for logistics and transportation companies, Unisys brings unparalleled industry expertise to the table. Unlike competing solutions, Unisys Logistics Optimization™ does not require additional data training to deploy, and it seamlessly integrates with existing IT infrastructure and operations, providing immediate value to clients. Moreover, the solution continually improves its accuracy through daily use, ensuring it remains up-to-date and always relevant.
“Managing logistics costs is of utmost importance, and businesses are eagerly seeking solutions to meet this critical need,” said Chris Arrasmith, senior vice president, Enterprise Computing Solutions at Unisys. “Through the integration of advanced analytics, reinforced machine learning, and a combination of classical and quantum computing architectures, we have developed true operational foresight, enabling us to deliver real-time value to our clients.”
Unisys Logistics Optimization™ is specifically designed for air cargo, ground handlers, and freight forwarders, offering optimization in three key areas:
1. Capacity: Evaluates loading strategies, predicts and prescribes pallet and ULD builds, and identifies unused space to enable more day-of shipment departures and additional carrier revenue.
2. Inventory: Predicts and prescribes locations, packaging requirements, and inventory quantities, minimizing packing and build times, reducing freight damage or spoilage, and preventing costly claims.
3. Routing: Evaluates all potential routes, leveraging dynamic data sets, such as weather and travel times, to optimize outbound and reverse logistics routes.
