The logistics industry faces many challenges around the world, whether we are talking about rising energy prices, increasing security concerns or rising competition. Ubiquitous cellular networks and the latest M2M and GPS technologies enable this industry to become more efficient and more profitable than ever before. Another advantage of these technologies is that the loss and theft of goods are drastically declining due to their immediate localization and alert systems.
GPS systems can be used to accurately determine the position of devices, goods or even stolen vehicles. Due to the different size and robustness of available modules, GPS can now be localized to almost any device under a variety of conditions.
Monitoring and Alerts
Using different sensors, data about the state of the goods can be transmitted such as temperature, humidity level, vibrations, damage or the traveling speed of the product. Various alerts can also be set. For sensitive products such as pharmaceutical supplies, immediate warnings are crucial to modifying their path and preserving them.
Optimizing your journey in real time
Today's advanced navigation can not only adapt to the user's driving but also receive data from other devices in the Smart City ecosystem. Such navigation can then determine the best possible route to avoid traffic jam or roads that are undergoing repair.
