Using IoT for creating an Internet of Shipping
Today, the IoT or Internet of Things has taken the logistics industry into the future by bounds and leaps. The transportation sector is among the 2nd largest segment that has invested in the Industrial IoT. A small section of this particular investment goes into the monitoring of fleet management. The implementation of IoT in the smart transportation section has intensely changed the logistics industry.
In order to make the logistics system highly effective, IoT has handled everything from issues like road safety to monitoring of fleet management system.
Here are some of the ways Fero utilizes the Internet of Things to amp up the logistics and shipping industry.
Business entrepreneurs are always on the lookout for businesses that cater real-time information for their fleet. This helps them reap maximum benefits from making intelligent real-time decisions. The slow and gradual yet progressive fleet management adds operational efficiency, better fuel consumption, maintenance of cost, sped-up accident response, and proper regulatory compliance. Additional features of Fero Logistics with relation to IoT include GPS tracking, Customized dashboards, Geo-fencing, as well as real-time business decisions.
2-Smart Inventory Management:
IoT in the transportation and logistics management serves as the perfect catalyst for real-time information all across the distribution, production, as well as warehouse centre. This effectively reduces costs for inventory management and improves the chances for predictive maintenance. The introduction of Smart Inventory Management with IoT has brought down instances of management errors. The depth and quality of data from the IoT sensors & related systems have actually strengthened the system for legal inventory management.
3-Optimal Utilization of Assets:
Fero aims to introduce a change in the global freight industry with IoT transportation that enables features such as asset tracking. This feature tracks all the definite assets such as location, current status, etc. with Fero’s Internet of Shipping feature which enables end-to-end tracking. One can easily track the shipment and its real-time location. Not just that, the IoT system enables tracking with longitude and latitude of the shipment through its journey. The advanced analysis technique helps track all devices such as axels, sensors and all about the tolerance and threshold of the shipment carrier.
4-Geo-Fencing with IoT:
Addition of IoT in the transportation sector has introduced an advanced version of the GPS or the Geo-Fencing technique. Fero has managed to introduce a technology that captures the exact location of the shipment with proper coordinates to follow. The Geo-fencing process not only helps in initiating the automation of tasks but also allows for users and fleet managers to ensure that the driver doesn’t deviate in any way from the given path. Moreover, the IoT in fleet management with geo-fencing enables tracking of any untimely issues such as unforeseen traffic situation, climate issues, the problem with fleet functioning, etc. The IoT has managed to change business performances rendered by several organizations and Fero aims to cater top-notch services with fleet and logistics management.
