Integrated Fleet Management
Another crucial role of supply chain management is making sure your vehicles operate as expected. Your company can profit from the following advantages in the transportation sector by implementing IoT-based solutions:
Automated Activity Monitoring
You can simply track your vehicles and receive real-time information regarding accidents or delays due to the connectivity of GPS and other sensors inside an IoT network. This information can be used by your supply chain management software to improve routes, decrease fuel costs, and raise client satisfaction.
Increased maintenance effectiveness
Motor fleet managers struggle every day with monitoring the condition of their fleet making sure all of their operating vehicles are intact and managing their proper maintenance procedures. Multiple parameters can be collected and reported by online IoT devices, enabling proactive planning of maintenance inspections.
Vehicle connectivity generally makes fleet management “smarter” by providing data-driven decision-making, various cost-saving opportunities, and improved delivery process control.
Solutions for tracking assets
Another benefit of integrating IoT in logistics is improved inventory control. Warehouses can now utilize both active and passive RFID (radio-frequency identification) tags for internal logistics in addition to barcodes. Wireless supply chain tracking technology makes it quicker and easier to identify incoming orders, handle returns, and take inventory while transferring all the information into your ERP system.
