Global IoT in Logistics: Snapshot

The use of Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to bring a mega revolution in the transportation and logistics space. While mobile technologies is in the fray of most transportation and logistics service providers, high competition and multiple operational challenges necessitates beyond this. 

In such a scenario, the main focus of logistics companies is customers, to meet their needs and expectations. To serve this, IoT is the de facto solution bringing with it smart connections and uses. For its many advantages and opportunities, IoT-based solutions are gaining popularity in the sector. 

In a highly competitive business environment, logistics companies need to accomplish 7R principles of logistics. These are collectively aimed at just-in-time delivery, supply chain visibility, quality services, and product lifecycle transparency. Since these tasks are complicated, use of innovative solutions to achieve these goals is becoming a necessity. 

IoT capabilities are increasingly becoming principal capabilities of logistics systems. Supply chain monitoring, inventory management, vehicle tracking, safe transportation, and automation of processes are the goals attained using IoT in transportation and logistics sector. 

The selection of suitable IoT application for logistics and supply chain management is important. The accuracy of the IoT application that can range from room-level to outdoor locations, requirement of infrastructure, cost of ownership, cost of tag, battery life of each tag, and security of system are key parameters to be considered before making selection of an IoT application for logistics and supply chain needs.
