How Logistics and Supply Chain companies can benefit from Chatbots?

A bot is a software application designed to make operations like buying tickets, tracking cargo, and finding pricing in the logistics industry easier. Chatbots, which are driven by AI, are capable of striking thought-provoking human dialogue. Omnichannel chatbots let customers schedule & track shipments via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and more. Chatbots in the logistics business give comprehensive transparency and improved visibility of the whole supply chain cycle; automate quotes for any delays, and manage to book and pick up requests to trace shipments. Chatbots can assist the logistics business in overcoming the difficult task of keeping clients informed about shipments.

With chatbots companies can;
reduce 94% of overhead costs;
handle 79% more queries; and
can improve response rates by 88%.
