ThroughPut Inc., the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Supply Chain pioneer that enables operations to increase output, quality, throughput, profitability, and safety through automated bottleneck detection and elimination, participated at the Frankfurt Air Cargo Conference at the House of Mobility and Logistics (HOLM). Presenting to over 220 high-ranking managers and ground handling agents of the air freight industry, Anzar Kamdar, Head of Industrial Data Science at ThroughPut.AI explained that “95% of unresolved production issues are triggered by bottlenecks. Yet despite the advent of data-driven IoT and AI-powered solutions, too many organizations still follow obsolete, manual, and reactive approaches to resolutions, costing them precious time, resources and money.” He further went on to present the business case of ThroughPut.AI’s ground-breaking Artificial Intelligence (AI) product, ELI, that can detect, identify, prioritize and prevent potential bottlenecks, saving millions in unscheduled downtime, unpredictable lead-times, unforseen inventory variances, staffing shortages, higher costs and lost revenues.
The Air Cargo Conference, organized by HAUS61 and hosted by the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt eV, the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, the Rhine-Main University of Applied Sciences, Fraunhofer IML, and Hessen Aviation brings together practitioners and researchers in the air cargo industry to discuss and deliberate on the latest developments being experienced by the sector.
