IoT and Supply Chain Management

The Internet of Things (IoT) empowers organizations to achieve this visibility by creating smart supply chains. Gain visibility into goods throughout production and delivery.

How Can the Internet of Things Enable Smarter Supply Chains?

Effective supply chain management relies on visibility into materials and goods throughout production and delivery. The Internet of Things (IoT) empowers organizations to achieve this visibility by creating smart supply chains. IoT-enabled supply chains optimize production and safeguard goods in transit, improving efficiency and customer service.

IoT-connected sensors close the control loop in smart supply chain management, enabling real-time asset monitoring throughout the chain. Sensors can assess numerous asset status variables, including temperature and vibration. All of those can affect raw goods and materials quality.

Sensor technology advances are making it easier for more businesses to participate in the IoT supply chain. Low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks offer IoT connectivity at a low cost.

Today’s rugged sensors can withstand adverse conditions and continue to deliver valuable data. With expanded functionality enabled by 5G networks, the IoT supply chain will become faster and more robust.

Improve the Safety of Cold Chains

Industries requiring temperature-controlled supply chains — known as cold chains — stand to benefit from IoT supply chain capabilities. IoT technologies that provide real-time data and control to prevent problems are transforming cold chains. An IoT food supply chain can deliver crucial end-to-end control to ensure safe handling and avoiding waste.
