Drones, robots and predictive software are the most important logistics trends of the future. Parcel delivery using drones may be a gamechanger in logistics. But large-scale use of drones for this purpose still remains a pipe dream. Drones may offer opportunities in some very specific fields in the short term. Postal operators such as Australia Post, Singapore Post and Swiss Post as well as online retailers such as Amazon and Rakuten have all reported testing drones. In addition, Google and Facebook are also testing their own versions.
