One of the backbones of many country’s economy is the manufacturing industry. It has gone through many advancements through the years and has survived economic booms and downturns. Today’s technological advances and third-party logistics outsourcing are transforming the industry further.

Technological advancements have brought radical changes in the industry’s profit making and operations. Faster access to information and easier, more efficient ways to use data and analytics provide the industry with the boost to explore new possibilities in more territories.
Within the manufacturing industry’s inner circle, the advancements that are happening in the industry right now are called the fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0, referring to the closer working relationship of man and machine. This means that humans and machines share the responsibilities within a factory, not separately but in harmony.
