How Will Metaverse and Logistics Affect Us?
In our previous blog, we made an introduction to the metaverse universe, talked about what technology infrastructure the new system would rise on, and questioned the existence of logistics in cyberspace. Today, we are here with our comments on what metaverse logistics will be like. We'd like to hear your predictions. Let's start with a summary...
New World: Metaverse
Metaverse, whose name comes from English and which we can translate into our language as a meta-universe, comes across as a digital world that allows people to move and communicate between different devices in a virtual environment. It opens the doors to a virtual world where we exist with all our perceptions thanks to technological devices without physical effort. As preparations for the transition to the metaverse world continue in full swing, it is thought that the transition to this world will be fully realized with web 3.0, which is called the next-generation internet.
Blockchain technology played a big role in the rise of the concept of the metaverse. From health technologies to sports of digital assets that are developing to the extent that blockchain channels and networks allow; integration is possible in many contexts from art to the service sector. Metaverse cities will also thrive with blockchain technology infrastructure. This idea is not far away, its drafts have been studied for a long time! Nevada Mayor Hillary Schieve in The United States, for example, wants to use blockchain technologies in the city's infrastructure. It is working on blockchain-based digital solutions for the city government and citizens. If the integration of these processes into the blockchain is completed, intermediary institutions such as banks will disappear. Bitcoins already allow you to move your money independently of banks. Therefore, citizens can use the money they collect in the blockchain network anywhere in the city. As long as his grocery store, store, canteen, hospital, post office are equipped with this technology. Jeffrey Berns, CEO of Blockchains LLC, is also preparing to build the world's first smart city, where buildings, parks, people, all infrastructure, will be securely connected by blockchain technology. So pretty soon we're going to start hearing about metaverse cities. The citizens of these cities will probably be meta-humans of our avatars. So, how will the logistics sector serve in these cities, how will it transform?
We mentioned drone couriers in a blog earlier. We think it's going to exist because of the metaverse. It may even be one of the first steps in logistics because we're already hearing footsteps. Now manpower will be replaced by intelligent, technological devices that can be programmed completely remotely. Once the final mile logistics are completed, we think that the logistics processes that return to the first mile logistics will not be long after the customer's return request will not belong, or even a change in this cycle. This is because, as we mentioned in our previous article, there are hologram-based experiments in the metaverse universe. For example, we said that perakanders would benefit from this technology. Why shouldn't a customer who makes purchases from e-commerce sites try and approve products in person thanks to the same technology? In this way, there will be a decrease in return requests and customer satisfaction will be high. Since the technologies used will be equipped with a whole new generation of technologies that can be followed in real-time, overlooked errors in supply chain processes will also decrease. Again, these technologies will use big data to make more accurate and effective plans for logistics companies and every active body in the supply network. Thus, processes such as talent development, process planning, intensive period planning and shipment modelling, which logistics teams must pay attention to, will be realized both automatically and most profitably thanks to data. Storage, which is a problem in the industry these days, will again take its share of the metaverse universe. We think that concerns about warehouse capacity will end with new warehouse satiation that can be created if needed.
