INTERNET OF THINGS IN LOGISTICS
Amid the hype surrounding IoT today, one thing is clear: the logistics industry is a key player poised to benefit from the IoT revolution.
With millions of shipments being moved, tracked, and stowed by a variety of machines, vehicles and people each day, it is no surprise that logistics and IoT are a perfect match. In logistics, IoT can connect different assets along a supply chain in a meaningful way, and then analyze the data generated from these connections to capture new insights. By doing so, IoT enables logistics providers to unlock higher levels of operational efficiency, while creating customized, dynamic, and automated services for their customers. Falling prices of device components (sensors, actuators and semiconductors), faster wireless networks, and increasing data crunching capabilities only compound the business benefits, ensuring that IoT becomes a disruptive trend in the logistics industry over the next decade.
