  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML): AI and ML are being used to automate tasks, improve decision-making, and predict future demand.
  • The Internet of Things (IoT): IoT sensors can be used to track the location of goods, monitor equipment, and collect data on environmental conditions.
