Integrated Solutions for Logistics
Delivery and fulfillment company operations are evolving through the use of mobile computing, cloud services, and analytics enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT). There are many aspects involved in logistics. Asset tracking with active and passive radio frequency identifier (RFID) tags greatly aids in supply chain management decisions by providing information about the items they are attached to. Also, trackers connected to the internet can track specific items in the delivery process. Similarly, satellite trackers can provide location data on items worldwide. Bluetooth beacons and tags provide tracking data in more confined areas while near-field communication (NFC) tags allow for the use of mobile devices as readers. Finally, fleet management uses GPS and other technologies to obtain real-time data on vehicle locations and operations. By integrating supply chain, inventory, and fleet management using IoT solutions, the logistics of any company can be made more efficient and cost effective.
