How IoT Enables Mobile Asset Tracking Throughout the Supply Chain
In an increasingly complex and globalized logistics landscape, being able to accurately track assets as they move throughout the supply chain can be a huge advantage for businesses. But generating real time data on mobile assets has traditionally been difficult to achieve. Containers and pallets are often transported through remote areas that have low connectivity and limited global positioning system (GPS) coverage, making them difficult to locate. Alternatively, they can be stuck indoors making them difficult to track as there is not a clear sky view for GPS. Attempts to use tracking devices have also been held-back by their high-power consumption and low battery life, making them expensive and impractical to use in many situations. Due to recent advances in Internet of Things (IoT) technology, this dynamic is now changing, culmniating in a new generation of asset tracking solutions that enable enterprises to follow people, assets and equipment in real time, wherever they are located in the supply chain.
