Today, we are at the forefront of what is referred to as the 4th industrial revolution, the one of Digital Supply Networks. In this world, execution is driven by cyber-physical systems of interconnected products, customers & multi-tier supply chain partners. The result is “Always-On” Digital Supply Networks, which are dynamic, integrated networks characterized by a high-velocity, continuous flow of information and analytics.

Transport & Logistics (T&L) providers, by their very nature, have widely distributed physical networks and rely on rapid information about those networks to make appropriate decisions. As a result, they were quick to see the benefits of new sensor and connection technology, placing them at the forefront of the transition to a connected world. Companies in this sector have embraced the suite of data-driven technologies dubbed the Internet of Things (IoT) in diverse settings, a.o. real-time tracking of shipments, warehouse-capacity optimization, predictive asset maintenance, route/last-mile optimization, and more. Applying IoT helps them and their customers to improve client service, increase efficiencies, cut costs, and create new sources of revenue. This session elaborates on the potential of IoT for the T&L industry and shippers by extension, highlighting successful implementation examples and key success factors of an IoT program.
