IoT in the Supply Chain: Anticipating the Demands of the Future
How are RFID and the Internet of Things bringing the supply chain concept into the future?
Using connected devices for fleet management significantly reduces the amount of time required to get orders from a warehouse to their destination. UPS uses its ORION system to optimize its trucks routes based on traffic pattern information collected by IoT devices. Doing so has saved the company 10 million gallons of fuel in a single year, and about $400 million dollars in total.
Ensure Product Quality
In another great example of quality control, AT&T now offers shipping containers and trailer tracking to ensure the proper handling of shipments, as its devices measure everything from motion and shock to humidity and pressure.
Predict and Prevent Problems
Having these detailed insights can potentially save millions of dollars when it comes to equipment, while ensuring a safer work environment at the same time.
