Tompkins Solutions, a supply chain consulting and material handling integration firm, will begin offering products made by Loko AI, an artificial intelligence company that develops risk management services using computer vision and data.
Tompkins Solutions is a subsidiary of Tompkins International. The Raleigh, N.C.-based company said it has been helping customers develop “unique supply chain consulting and material handling integration solutions” since 1975.
Loko AI is based in Irvine, Calif., and said it provides “autonomous systems, computer vision, and synthetic data” to increase companies’ risk management capabilities. It was founded in 2017 in response to the Route 91 Festival Shooting in Las Vegas. The company’s founder and CEO, Joseph Zaki, said he had friends who were at the festival that night.
“We are immensely proud to be working side-by-side with Tompkins Solutions and their amazing leadership team to fill a huge gap and demand in the supply chain and logistics industry,” said Zaki in a statement.
Loko AI gives customers a deeper looking into operations
“Caretaker” is the company’s autonomous platform and includes a “suite of AI software, dashboards, and camera sensors.” Those can be used by third-party logistics companies (3PL) as well as for distribution and fulfillment operations, the company said.
The company noted its systems can be used to monitor a range of tasks including:
- Worker optimization
- Worker safety
- Space efficiency
- Warehouse management software integration
“The market demand for Loko AI's Caretaker is clear evidence that the industry is in the middle of an AI revolution,” the company said in a statement. “With their innovative solutions and combined decades of experience, Loko AI and Tompkins Solutions are uniquely positioned to fully unlock the possibilities of AI in the supply chain and logistics space.”
Latona and Zaki are both at Manifest 2023 this week in Las Vegas. The supply chain and logistics show runs from Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 at the Caesars Forum.
Zaki will speak as part of the “Cyber-Threats- Navigating Challenges We Face As An Ecosystem panel” in room 208-210 at 2:35 p.m. on Thursday at 2 p.m. PT
