There is a lack of automation, visibility, and connectivity from node to node, introducing uncertainty, greater room for error and waste, and an inability to reap insights from the vast quantities of data that are or can be collected as goods travel and as they pass from one location to another. In the cold chain, this lack of visibility can be particularly costly and dangerous.
Goals and Objectives
The goal of this use case is to drive greater visibility into and connectivity of cold chain assets and goods across the supply chain, with particular emphasis on maintaining and monitoring temperature of goods and points of failure (truck door left open) in real time.
IoT, mobile, transportation management systems (TMS), cold chain management systems/control tower, and cloud
Use Case Summary
Via connected cold chain assets, organizations can better prevent loss and waste and ensure the safety and delivery of goods as promised.
