IoT Network in Transportation & Logistics: End-to-End Supply Chain Management

What is an IoT Network?

A person with a heart monitor implant, a car with built-in sensors, or any device with an IP address that can send data over a network are all examples of things included in the IoT.

Chances are that you feel a bit surprised since those things don’t really have anything in common at first glance, but here’s how IoT unites them:

The Internet of Things (IoT) consists of sensors, software, and other technologies to communicate and share data with other devices. These gadgets include anything from household items to high-tech industrial IoT networking. 

Unilog is an expert company managing global supply chains, which understands the benefits of the IoT when it comes to supply chain solutions. Let’s see how IoT network solutions can affect global society and the development of supply chain management.

How Does IoT Work?

The Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem consists of web-enabled smart devices that use embedded systems, such as processors, sensors, and communication equipment, to collect, share, and act on the data they receive from their surroundings.

These gadgets periodically communicate with devices that are identical to them and share information to make decisions. Although people can interact with technology, most of the work is done by technology without human involvement.

In the last decade, IoT network architecture has developed as one of the most crucial technological solutions of the 21st century. Kitchen appliances, automobiles, thermostats, and baby monitors are examples of common items that can connect successfully to an IoT Network. Unilog believes that a smart and current supply chain design must utilize IoT Technology to further promote its service goals.

Benefits of IoT Network Architecture for the Logistics Industry

The Internet of Things (IoT) Provides real-time access to asset data such data can critical when it comes to provide full visibility to our customers’ supply chain.

Several parts of the shipping process can be remotely managed through an IoT channel. Location data, consumption management can create a live feed of data that can be utilized to automate certain parts of the supply chain – all made available with IoT connection

Let’s take a look at some of the most significant advantages of IoT network solutions for the logistics industry:

 

  • Visibility to every part of your supply chain.
  • Exception based management – with alerts driving contingency response to contain disruptions.
  • You can receive information from your assets at any time on any device.
  • Automation introducing IoT to your supply chain can help you manage multiple tasks automatically
  • Lowering the need for human intervention leaves much more resources for other tasks.

How Does the IoT Network Transform the Supply Chain?

IoT network implementation is mostly used for tracking, and it allows companies like Unilog to successfully automate parts of your supply chain.

The following are the major findings on how IoT networks can change the supply chain:

  • Supply Chain managers have access to a consistent stream of real-time information on the whereabouts of commodities. 
  • Supply chain managers can monitor the circumstances under which the items are being transported, specific sensors can show us the temperature your goods are being transported in, humidity, and other elements that can jeopardize the product’s quality.
  • IoT devices provide supply chain managers with more alternatives, enhancing decision-making and boosting delivery projection precision.
  • Supply chain managers may effectively plan routes using IoT smart devices to account for unanticipated occurrences or delays. that occur on the roadway.

We bring clarity to Complexity

We design visible, feasible and achievable solutions and manage them for you. Unilog defines the SOW, identifying unique customer needs in the replenishment process. Inbounding 100,000 serials or a testing a server requires a different approach. Dealing with a defective unit inbound or field return is not the same as a PO inbound or a WH transfer inbound. Outbound of a service order is different than an FMCG with expiration date outbound. Shipping & tracking of small parcel or full tracks can lead to different flows and process.

Our SOW process focuses on the business challenge and its unique needs. Once we’ve gained an in-depth understanding of the challenges & needs, we design a unique solution to best support them.
