IoT – what’s really in it for logistics?
In an effort to better understand the Internet of Things and what it means for logistics, eft engaged with IoT experts at the global IT service provider, Luxoft, for answers.
The buzz surrounding IoT is taking off – and for good reason. Connected devices have existed for years – for example, in 1982 a Coke machine was able to report on its own inventory and RFID has been used for decades. As the costs associated with various sensors plummets, wireless connectivity expands and improves, the opportunities for what has now been packaged as ‘IoT’ seem boundless. Given logistics’ many moving parts, IoT is inevitably set to benefit.
In this interview we discuss everything from IoT’s history to its ROI in logistics companies. We look at how organizations should be incorporating IoT into their strategies and the costs to become a connected business.
