Bechtel Corp in Houston, TX: a new era for the logistics
Bechtel in Houston has always been a heart of innovations. Today Bechtel has decided to go further in order to improve the logistics industry. They are aimed at the reduction of the probability of unexpected occurrences and, as a result, the reduction of expense.
To reach their goal, Houston company Bechtel uses 4D simulation and virtual reality to manage the cargo transportations. Thus, the logistics might become more predictable, which is comfortable for the carriers and cargo owners. Such an approach can also lower the costs of transportations. Thus, it is possible to immediately understand that something is going wrong and prevent a domino effect. Besides, everyone understands that even 1-day delay can lead to the expensive consequences.
The approach will allow evaluating the risks, prices, and schedule, thus, allowing the customers understanding the possibilities of how the shipping program will operate. Other innovative technologies might be also applied, such as drones, holographic computers, 360-degree cameras, etc. in order to show the holograms. Timesaving and safety will become the greatest advantages.
