Abstract

This paper presents the application of artificial intelligence in the logistics industry and its impact on employment as well as countermeasures. Shunfeng Logistics has enhanced efficiency and precision with intelligent distribution and warehousing applications. It is important for logistics enterprises and practitioners to pay attention, adapt, and acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the demands of the AI era. The article suggests countermeasures like acquiring new skills, changing jobs, or transforming, along with government support. AI has significantly influenced the logistics industry by enhancing efficiency and accuracy and generating new employment opportunities resulting in some job transformations and upgrades. In the future, the logistics industry will require more highly skilled and specialised professionals and will strive for enhanced intelligence and efficiency. Professionals in traditional logistics practices will need to continuously learn and improve their skills and expertise to keep pace with the evolving challenges and changes in the industry.
