Logistics focuses on the flow of products, but its consequences are far more extensive. In business, logistics success translates to increased efficiency, lower costs, higher production rates, better inventory control, more efficient use of warehouse space, more customer and supplier satisfaction, and an enhanced customer experience.
Historically, companies in the transportation and logistics sector have relied on manual methods to trace freight through the supply chain. Nonetheless, with the development of IoT from IoTFI, businesses will be able to save significant amounts of time and optimize their processes.
IoTFI uses certain sensors that help in detection and protocols for communication. It attaches the sensors to the internet via Lorawan, a wide-area networking protocol. It protects networks and endpoints.
IoTFI has been working on a system that will facilitate the workings of logistics with state-of-the-art sensors and techniques. It helps companies in ways that can go a long way. Take the example of a trailer cargo. Along the trailer's roof, one form of cargo sensor that measures available linear footage can be installed to capture and report the percentage of open floor space at any given time. Companies can utilize this information to make smarter, real-time routing decisions, optimizing trailer utilization and reducing empty driving miles. Real-time data from our sensors will also assist businesses in being more transparent and accountable for their products.
Our system’s optimization allows for calculating the shortest routes for cargo delivery, improving fuel supply to the engine, and preventing accidents involving fuel spillages into the environment.
