IoT Integration Services
What is IoT?
The “Internet of things” has become an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. The concept, which is often called IoT, means connecting all devices to the Internet. IoT has become prevalent to a variety of industries, but possibly none more than logistics. Ideas such as “connected trucks” equipped with IoT devices to monitor temperature, location, and speed real-time, producing data that can be used to drive predictive analytics, are being vigorously researched and tested.
As an electronic-commerce-consulting pioneer, Effective Data has begun studying how to get this data from carriers to the product senders and recipients. Harnessing this up-to-date information provides a plethora of benefits to all entities involved in the supply chain.
As an example, IoT devices provide real-time location data, enabling recipients of goods to better schedule staff to receive and distribute the delivery upon arrival. This provides better visibility of the status of goods ordered and makes the carrier an integral part of the value chain.
The carrier has always been a weak spot in the Electronic Data Interchange process, however. EDI documents typically go from the vendor to the customer with no input from the carrier, aside from a carrier-generated tracking number. Utilizing technologies like IoT and web services, delivery data can be updated instantaneously and securely while giving companies greater visibility.
Using IoT to communicate shipment information real-time doesn’t just apply to big rigs, though. It covers all modes of transportation, from planes and trains to vessels and bicycles. With the increased frequency of extreme weather patterns across the country, real-time delivery information is very beneficial to supply chain functionality.
