In this episode of the New Warehouse Podcast, Anar Mammadov, the Technical Co-Founder of Senpex, shares how Senpex uses artificial intelligence for route optimization to tackle persistent challenges of last-mile delivery. Mammadov shares his extensive experience and Senpex’s solutions to streamline logistics operations.
The Genesis of Senpex: A Journey Led by Innovation
Anar Mammadov recounts his journey into the logistics industry, “I’ve worked and managed different enterprise solutions. In supply chain, I have more than 18 years of experience.” He highlights the inception of Senpex as a response to glaring gaps in the U.S. logistics sector. “I did a lot of different projects and implemented different solutions and I just decided, why not try and solve this problem in the supply chain and find a way for people to receive their product from different verticals within an hour.”
The Core of Senpex: Last-Mile Delivery Revolutionized
Mammadov discusses Senpex’s mission, “We’re helping warehouses or 3PLs make proper planning of their routes from their warehouse to their customers efficiently with less resources.” He explains how Senpex specializes in optimizing routes for the timely delivery of various products, emphasizing the high costs and complexities of last-mile delivery.
The Role of AI in Enhancing Logistic Efficiency
Mammadov illuminates the transformative power of AI in logistics, emphasizing that despite advancements like drone and autonomous deliveries, the demand for direct-to-home services is surging. Mammadov elaborates on the emerging trend of ‘dark warehouses,’ which allows brands to distribute products closer to consumers, enhancing efficiency and speed. He believes dark warehouses will be crucial in this rapidly growing sector, enabling brands to establish a presence near their customers and facilitating faster deliveries through partners like Senpex. This approach not only maintains brand integrity but also significantly reduces delivery times.
“We’re committed to optimizing routes and improving service reliability through AI. Our goal is to become the Shopify of last-mile logistics, continually innovating and addressing industry challenges,” Mammadov asserts, reflecting his ambition to lead in the logistics space through advanced AI applications.
