Ripples IoT in Logistics management

Sunline group China deploys Ripples-FMS logistics software !!

The logistics industry consisting of freight forwarding, CEP, shipping, trucking, air, rail, etc is highly competitive, runs with lower margins, and is asset-intensive making it a low ROIC business. Above all this the dependency on human resources and geographies to cover impose huge challenges on the industry. Huge losses of revenue due to human negligence, theft of consignments, spares, tires, trucks, and damage to highly delicate and high-value cargo are common. For example, the cases of the entire trailer being hijacked in Europe, consignments being tampered with during transit in Africa, spares, and diesel being stolen in developing nations, etc.
