Did you know that IoT data tracking is a great way to stay effective and save money on your logistics budget?
Here is how you can document who damaged your freight, how you reduce harbor rental costs, and how to optimize a container fleet.
Damaged freight? Here is your documentation for damage
When your freight is fragile, project critical, or very expensive, you can normally do very little else than cross your fingers or knock on wood to keep it safe.
This has changed with IoT data tracking. You can now monitor critical conditions such as shock, tilt, light, temperature, and humidity.
The IoT connection makes it possible to track freight during transport. Therefore, you can react quickly to limit any damage – as it happens – by setting up automatic alarms.
If devices are out of IoT network coverage, they will still log all data. This means that input, such as dangerous impact levels or other incidents during transport, are fully documented.
In this way, you automatically have documentation for damage to your freight.
Save unnecessary harbor rental costs
By managing your fleet with a Trusted IoT data tracking solution, you can get data directly from your containers traveling around the world.
The data helps you monitor both position and duration of container storage on harbors, whether it is in Rotterdam, Shanghai, or Singapore.
This way, managers have a great tool to avoid paying harbor rental costs for longer than needed by making sure shipments keep moving and are shipped in time.
Optimize your container fleet by downsizing
Another advantage of fleet management with IoT tracking is the data analysis on supply chain coordination and fleet size.
IoT data gives you insights from the comfort of your desk that can help you downsize your fleet and avoid unnecessary costs on superfluous containers.
