Elasticrun AI case study: Logistics and commerce with AI
Elasticrun – Logistics/commerce – India
Elasticrun is a commerce and logistics company established in India to help supply grocery stores with products. The data-centric company uses AI to help streamline the process.
In India, there are over 12 million grocery store owners. Most are small independents travelling miles to wholesale businesses needing to know the stock availability.
ElasticRun has designed a network where wholesale and retail companies can trade and the crucial logistics/commerce between parties.
The AI results
ElasticRun uses Microsoft Azure, Kubernetes and Microsoft Azure to automate the logistics from product ordering to delivery. With this technology, they handle orders from over 200,000 stores from 19,000 villages. The plan is to grow this to 2 million stores over the next year.
Thoughts and insights
The key to Elasticrun success is harnessing the power of data. Having a good data strategy and infrastructure can help transform a business. This is an excellent example of using AI in the FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) market. Azure can handle vast amounts of data, saving massive amounts of time and resources throughout the product chain. I can include other forms of data, i.e. weather, news to anticipate future issues and risk analysis.
