IoT Solutions for Transportation and Logistics
New transportation, distribution and logistics processes make it easier than ever to deliver goods by land, sea or air while managing the schedules, routes and hazards on-the-go. Real-time analytics ensures the awareness of quickly changing conditions, helping make fast though informed decisions. This results in the higher operations efficiency and better customer service.
Keeping up with today's ever-expanding volume of shipments is a real challenge in the quickly globalizing world. Millions of M2M devices have short talks to the command centers via cellular and satellite links, requiring employment of the new-gen Mobile Device Management technologies for getting the end-to-end operations visibility. Here is where the AggreGate solutions come in handy.
AggreGate features the GNSS-based and RFID-based asset tracking demanded by the transportation and logistics industries. It provides a wealth of data so that the companies could obtain greater visibility into operations and delivery processes. A higher level of awareness extends to customers, promoting the trust and transparency, and helping improve the customer service models as well as strengthen the relationships.
Our smart platform maintains a seamless overview of the asset physical location, condition and status throughout the supply chain. While the pallets and actual goods are visible on a map, an unauthorized access to a container can trigger an alert in a command center. The whole supply chain becomes more efficient and offers further competitive advantage.
AggreGate uses its unique communication technologies to be a perfect tool for:
|Tracking cars, trucks, planes, vessels, and containers while maintaining the centralized association with individual shipments|
|Monitoring the productivity and vehicle performance|
|Cargo status reporting and alerting, e.g. temperature/humidity trends, geofence breaches and tampering alerts|
|Quickly determining the location and condition of individual shipments|
|Real-time unified location reporting backed up with the strong analysis toolset for in-transit decision making|
|Managing the huge networks of devices that have periodic server connections and no static IP addresses|
|Evaluating the internal or external risks, managing and reporting via an integrated process modeling engine|
|Controlling the costs and reducing the operating risks|
|Enforcing the shipment service level agreements|
AggreGate supports the GIS-neutral asset mapping based on any source (Google, Bing, OpenStreetMap, etc.) and uses the GPS/GLONASS tracking or RFID tagging for the asset positioning.
The product is available in both public and private clouds.
AggreGate rediscovers the inventory management philosophy by introducing a middleware solution optimizing the workload of warehousing equipment, assets, and operators. All relocations and auxiliary operations can be easily observed, coordinated, automated, and robotized.
IoT principles assume that the inventory and storage condition tracking works in the near-real-time mode. The automated scanning of inbound, outbound and relocated items ensures the load factors and location statuses are always up-to-date.
The logistic center operators also benefit from deep understanding of the equipment productivity. This visibility makes a room for optimizing the connected equipment efficiency.
