Award spotlights top software and technology startups in supply chain and logistics space.
BOSTON & SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive earlier this week announced Venti Technologies, a world leader in autonomous vehicle logistics for global supply chain and industrial and logistics yards, was selected as a winner of this year’s Top Tech Startups, which spotlights top software and technology startups in the supply chain and logistics space.
“For decades, supply chains have had insufficient technological innovation. Venti is demonstrating great success in deploying our autonomous technology to make goods transport logistics more efficient, resilient, and safe,” said Heidi Wyle, PhD, founder & CEO of Venti Technologies. “This award is a testament to Venti’s growth and innovation over the past year, as we aim to help logistics hubs ease the complexities of the modern supply chain through using self-driving vehicles.”
Venti’s AI algorithms are applied to its core autonomy solution and are able to work with any vehicle in any closed environment, such as ports, airports, warehouses, and factories. AI helps Venti’s software conduct all the classic components of autonomy – seeing the world, identifying threats, localizing the vehicle, and planning and replanning routes continuously during operation. Pioneering the future of transporting goods through autonomy, Venti’s solutions have, as one example, significantly extended robotics applications in logistics by developing lane markings as an independent object category for navigation. As a result, Venti has augmented classic robotics that are a critical component of supply chain environments like manufacturing, and enable higher precision, efficiency, and safety across daily operations.
“Many of today’s startups are poised to disrupt the supply chain space. Whether it’s raising money to improve sustainability, visibility and food safety or empowering companies to enhance the last mile, these startups are putting innovation at the forefront. They’re introducing real-time tracking and carbon footprint solutions, and developing robotics and wearables to better move product from Point A to Point B in the safest, most efficient manner,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The future of the supply chain industry is now. And, now is the time to shine a spotlight on these startups’ initiatives.”
