From Point A to B, Right on Time: 3 Ways IoT Can Improve Your Fleet’s Movement

We have reached the time where the transportation industry goes beyond moving goods from one point to another. Today, high competition and multiple business challenges drive the industry to focus on customers’ needs and expectations.

The Internet of Things is ready to disrupt every industry digitally and accelerate its influence on the way society works, communicates, and connects with one another, including and transportation enterprises. With IoT, these enterprises can now ensure on-time delivery, productivity, supply chain visibility, and quality services. Here are the benefits that transportation companies will get from IoT.

  1. Supply Chain Control and Visibility

Every business involved in the transportation industry seeks to be aware of the entire supply chain, from beginning to end. Full visibility on the chain automatically confers the advantage of making decisions that are well informed and will benefit all involved stakeholders. With IoT, a wealth of data ranges from carriers, employees, vendors, and customers can be assimilated and analyzed through integrating the system, acquiring useful insights.

2.  Advanced Fleet Management

Fleet management is essential for efficient maintenance of the vehicles in your fleet, along with their scheduling, usage, and route planning. Optimizing these areas will increase your fleet’s efficiency and effectiveness, reducing the downtime of your fleet. This will lower the costs and subsequently raise profit margins.

3.   Automating Manual Inventory Management Process

Besides improving the speed and productivity of transportation and asset tracking, IoT devices can help improve operation in the warehouse. During fulfillment, warehouse operators may need to track thousands of goods of varying sizes. For example, RFID tags will help businesses gain the ability to identify the location of the goods within the warehouse and contain valuable information that can be used to find the best storage location or organize pallets.
