Ways to Avoid Pitfalls in Logistic Business Using IoT

In today’s global economic scenario, the logistics industry has become a key role in facilitating trade and making sure the success of many business sectors. However, with the changing of consumer demands and complex modern business models, it is increasingly challenging to push logistics management to its full potential.

The high-priority objectives of logistics companies are to ensure on-time delivery, maximum visibility on supply chain, and quality services. Using IoT, how can logistics management personalize and provide a high-quality value for their customers?

Reliable Location Management Systems

In the logistics business, IoT has the ability to create smart location management system that enables companies to track driver activities, vehicle location, and delivery status. Once goods are delivered to the desired location, a manager is notified by a push message. Such a solution becomes an irreplaceable help in delivery planning as well as viewing of schedules. If there are any sudden changes, it will be detected instantly and reflected in real time, improving location management and streamlining business operations.

In the logistics business where the drivers and staff are placed in different locations to maintain robust supply chain velocity, tracking everyone’s level of productivity is important. Driver scoring feature can help check on the driver’s productivity in real time. Additionally, by using FleetSight’s fleet scoring feature, businesses will be able to objectively monitor the condition of their fleet in real time. The data will help inform decision makers if the fleet requires additional manpower or less manpower. Therefore maximizing the fleet’s productivity and lessening unnecessary operational cost.

If the logistics enterprise caters to a huge-scale clientele, keeping up with these rules and familiarizing the staff with them can pose a grave challenge. To tackle this issue, logistics business can increase their overall safety and security by knowing vehicle’s locations in real-time, tracking their delivery status, and monitoring driver’s behavior. For example, Telkomsel IoT FleetSight transforms how one of the largest mining contractors in Indonesia’s fleet moves. Having total visibility on driving speed, route traveled by each vehicle, violation, vehicle operating hours, idle time and experiencing real-time alert for drivers, the client can now improve visibility on safety driving compliance, reduce accident, get insights on vehicle utilization as well as fuel consumption.
