Whatever the mode – air, sea or land, transportation, and logistics are crucial to ensure productivity and efficiency of organizations. Access to real-time data is vital, and that is why IOT in transportation and logistics plays a huge role.
Poor visibility, continuously changing regulations, increasing traffic and labor rates, and the fluctuating nature of fuel costs are the biggest challenges to profitability faced by organizations. IoT provides visibility into employees, transactions, and equipment, enabling organizations to support operations in real-time and thereby increase efficiency and accelerate profits.
Benefits of Internet of things for transport and logistics:
Increased Visibility in Real-Time
IoT connects enterprise devices to personnel, collects data and sends it to the software and database. This enables you to have the real-time visibility required to make quick, smart and proactive business decisions. Bluetooth & RFID tags, readers, scanners, mobile computers, and handheld devices all work in cohesion to ensure maximum accuracy and efficiency in transport and logistics operations.
Improved Warehouse and Yard Management
With the internet of things, logistics has become easier to manage. With devices tracking vehicles, equipment and inventory data, and transmitting this information digitally through the cloud, companies can now ensure that their products are where they should be. Manual tasks at yards and warehouses can give rise to errors, causing delays and other problems. But with IoT and automated tracking and data collection, you can avoid delays, congestions at the yard, fuel wastage and product loss/damage – all increasing efficiency.
Better fleet management
Fleet management plays a crucial role in the management of maintenance schedules, service routes, and daily vehicle usage. IOT in fleet monitoring can help you conduct regular servicing of your vehicles, ensuring minimal downtime. Field technicians can capture and collect data, allowing you to make informed decisions regarding apportionment of time and resources. IoT will afford you the insight to expedite need-based responses remotely. This technology allows you to connect your vehicles to your devices, and back to your systems. With greater connectivity and visibility, and the ability to monitor your fleet, routes, speed and performance, and the goods and assets carried in those vehicles, you will be able to boost efficiency, reduce expenses and enhance safety.
Have you implemented IOT in transport logistics operations yet? If not, you need to do so without much delay – after all, your competition is already doing it and reaping the benefits of automation and greater real-time visibility.
