The transportation and logistics industry was one of the earliest adopters of Internet of Things technologies. This is due to the large number of sensors in current supply chains and the quick ROI achieved by implementing connected solutions. However, some of the major barriers to adoption have been the the lack of device interoperability and the level of cost and effort required to build applications that can handle the complex operational business logic.
Losant’s IoT platform is a fast, simple, and reliable way for developers building logistics application to overcome barriers like device connectivity, interoperability, and security. Utilizing its production-ready components for IoT enablement, logistics providers can experience a rapid boost in operational efficiency in fleet management, cargo integrity monitoring, and automated warehousing operations.
Logistics companies can take advantage of the full breadth of the Losant IoT platform including device setup, data collection, building reactions and visualizing data. Improving efficiency by implementing new technology is always a challenge but Losant makes it as simple as it can be to connect a wide range of devices, sensors, and data sources.
The platform enables the entire logistics infrastructure to be tracked and managed in a consolidated manner. Utilizing the open-source libraries provided by Losant for a variety of programming languages makes it easy to quickly get data in and out of your applications.
Easy-to-use data visualization tools allow real-time visibility to the exact location of all the people, pallets, vehicles, machines and equipment in the logistics system. A simple-to-use drag-and-drop reaction editor allows complex workflows to be built and managed so that decision makers and customers are automatically notified of any of delays or incidents. And finally, trend data allows data scientists to identify patterns for predictive actions, all easily importable and exportable within the platform.
