The Logistics and Shipping industry is one of the largest employers globally, offering roles across the skill spectrum.

However, just like other industries of this scale, it also suffers with a core problem - high workforce attrition rates - resulting in training processes that are overloaded with thousands of new employees joining organizations daily.

A GMetri client has 600+ people joining them every single day. As shipping and logistics loads fluctuate around the year, and a large part of this is fulfilled by a transient contracted workforce that is infused temporarily into the system. Most companies need to train employees for at least a month before they are shop-floor or operations ready. If a trainee is pushed to the shop floor earlier, there is a direct detrimental impact on errors per 100 orders.

In order to solve this issue, GMetri, an XR startup offered our platform to help create immersive learning and interactive content sent to employees on their own phones.

Virtual Reality (VR) for Employee Training in Logistics & Shipping Industry

GMetri’s XR powered experiences make employees remember 80%+ of what is taught while reducing the time spent in training by 75%.  All this is measurable for managers through a real-time data dashboard.

We work with several large logistics players across the globe and the effectiveness of the training methodology is higher than any other medium, including videos, making it the future of training and development within the shipping and logistics industry.

Fundamentally, XR, or eXtended Reality is a blanket term that encompasses modern day Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences. The higher retention is owing to the fact that the medium entails feedback/interactions from the viewer, making it the next best thing to in-person training. One that can be revisited with ease and performance tracked. The GMetri platform is a complete toolkit to create, publish and track these experiences end-to-end. And it is simple enough that anybody from the organisations own in-house teams can do it.

At GMetri, we say that if you can make slides, you already have the requisite skill set, GMetri is built only to make the world of spatial computing accessible for you.
