what can intelligent logistics solutions solve?
By analyzing data obtained from sensors and/or radio frequency identification tags, the Internet of Things can help improve visibility into transportation operations. For example, by analyzing the RFID tag data attached to inventory items, the logistics management system can provide warehouse staff with real-time data on the location, status, and status of each inventory item, and notify staff of the inbound delivery and provide Insights into warehouse equipment usage.
At the same time, with the help of advanced data science and technology, the Internet of Things has laid a solid foundation for the automation of transportation operations. For example, a logistics management system based on the Internet of Things can predict the amount of inventory required for the next production cycle, recommend the best replenishment date, and even automatically send replenishment orders to suppliers.
To enable mutual data sharing, IoT solutions are integrated with other enterprise systems. For example, an IoT solution can access data from the maintenance department to ensure that the state of the transportation vehicle is normal or to provide the accounting department with real-time asset data required for the company's annual report.
What aspects of smart logistics can be monitored?
With RFID and the Internet of Things, every link in the logistics industry becomes a data point, providing participants in the logistics industry with real-time insight into the status, location, and status of parts and materials, work in progress and finished products, equipment and vehicles. IoT-driven logistics management solutions provide the following data:
Supplier-side materials and components: Suppliers should agree to deploy RFID systems on their site or obtain data from the supplier's IoT system to obtain real-time information on supplier inventory levels, delivery status, schedules, and routes. In this way, manufacturers can react to changes in supplier manufacturing operations in a timely manner, reducing the risk of order delays and outstanding orders.
Condition of the goods in transit: Before the Internet of Things is put into use, the condition of the goods in transit can only be checked when they reach the delivery point. Vehicles can now be equipped with temperature, humidity, vibration and shock pulse sensors so that manufacturers can view information on the condition of the goods at any time.
Inventory in manufacturing plants and smart warehouses: By using inventory items with RFID tags, inventory experts and warehouse staff can know in real-time the location, status, and flow of raw materials and finished products as they move within and between plants.
Customer delivery: Manufacturers use data obtained from RFID systems and sensors installed on vehicles to monitor delivery conditions to ensure shipments and quality of goods.
