With the introduction of Industry 4.0 or IIoT, digital transformation has begun to show its profound impact on the transportation and logistics industry. As industry regulations have forced the T&L industry to do more with less, profitability is threatened across the board. At the same time, the industry is witnessing cut-throat competition and demands a digital transformation for efficient business operations. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the solution to make Transportation and Logistics management effective by ensuring safer traveling and more efficient performance.
IoT devices are making traveling safer, performance more efficient, and even help to find a parking space to park your vehicle. The real-time tracking and analyzing, need a constantly connected network that transfers huge amounts of data and controls systems and devices. Biz4Intellia provides an interoperable End-to-End IoT solution that analyzes vehicle performance and stores data (even if a device is offline) to predict or prevent vehicle maintenance. Biz4Intellia, an end-to-end IoT business solution, is the last mile transportation solution that assures safety and performance of vehicles and workforce.
Keep track of each truck’s running time, idle time, distance traveled, and average speed. And get notified when drivers exceed the speed limits. Ensure safety of drivers by monitoring driving hours and driving habits of the drivers to make logistics management effective.
Prioritize large no. of orders to serve urgent needs of customers and make the delivery of multiple no. of orders on time by monitoring and analyzing real-time traffic data resulting in increased customer loyalty and retention as well.
Know where your vehicle is and keep track of the routing activities, that reduces travel distance and helps in rerouting the vehicle according to the traffic and road condition on a particular route. GPS vehicle tracker streamlines the logistics by sharing real-time data and alerts to optimize delivery routes.
Derive valuable insights about customers and their expectations from the data collected from IoT-enabled devices. Keep customers updated on their orders and the further processes of shipping and expected delivery.
Reduce the inventory carrying cost by keeping track of future demand for supply through Effective Inventory Management by tracking the demand and supply cycle.
Ensure optimal utilization of resources and cut down the overhead costs by predicting the upcoming equipment maintenance requirement and reducing the driver’s idle time.
Real-time updates and detailed tracking helps to control the business lifecycle, make informed decisions, manage the costs, and take complete control of the resources at hand.
IoT has far-reaching benefits for the industry and eventually the end consumers. These benefits extend across the entire logistics value chain, fleet management, warehousing operations, and last-mile delivery. IoT in Transportation has transformed all the way from Tracking the vehicle to measuring the weight that is loaded in the Trailer, vehicle routing according to traffic condition and gathering all this data for further analysis to make smarter business decisions. With the help of devices like scanners, controllers, beacons, RFID systems, and a comprehensive IoT platform that interconnects IoT devices with apps, IoT is making Transportation industry more efficient and effective.
