Using the example of logistics for fresh food, IoT-based technology can be used to intelligently close any gaps in the supply chain, utilizing those hauliers who are available and constructing a more efficient logistical solution, such as re-routing them to pick up more efficiently and ensuring that perishable foods are adequately monitored.
Utilizing IoT-enabled technology can substantially improve supply chain visibility and effectiveness.
Once enabled, the device collects real time information about the exact location of those goods at any point along the supply chain and securely transmits that information through an IoT network.
Logistics managers can use a dashboard to view real time information about the precise location of an asset, the speed at which it is moving, and its estimated arrival time based on current traffic conditions.
IoT-enabled systems can have an impact throughout the food supply chain, from better crop management to optimizing the efficiency of home food deliveries.
By bringing together route data and client actions, supply chain managers can project where pallets need to be in advance of actual demand and optimize route planning, as well as maximizing local storage requirements.
By harnessing the power of IoT-based logistics, businesses can minimize gaps in their supply chains, maximize efficiencies and provide themselves and their supply chain partners with exceptional levels of transparency and efficiency.
