Reduce the risk of supply-chain disruptions
Gain global, real-time visibility across your operations to enable you to adapt quickly when the unexpected occurs. The post-COVID economy will rely on automated supply-chain management more than ever to ensure that business operations can respond quickly when they are disrupted by similar events. Smart asset tracking enables you to track the location, movement and interaction of fleets of logistics trucks, shipping containers, reusable packaging and goods to boost efficiency, reduce waste and deliver capital expenditure (CAPEX) savings. Unified Endpoint Management ensures the functional continuity of devices such as barcode scanners, kiosks, ruggedized tablets and smartphones.
Comply with regulatory conditions
Simplify the monitoring of the status of goods. Implement a digital documentation strategy to ensure import and export rules are adhered to and keep track of import duties and taxes. Use IoT solutions for condition monitoring to ensure the integrity and safety of fresh food, flowers and pharmaceuticals that require “fresh chain” or “cold chain” transportation. Handle any product recalls with speed and efficiency to protect the consumer and your reputation through automated alerts.
Accelerate delivery for the end customer
To meet customer expectations for ever-shorter delivery windows, adopt a “demand run” delivery strategy. Use AI to analyze the promised delivery times, number and locations of drop sites and real-time congestion, enabling you to optimize staff scheduling and delivery routes and reduce last-mile delivery costs. Keep the customer and control center informed, and send COVID-safe delivery confirmation notifications via mobile messaging.
Ensure health and safety and protect the environment
Long hours inside a truck or at sea are the norm in the supply-chain sector. Ensure the health, safety and well-being of drivers and shipping crews to maximize productivity and safeguard operations. Use geo-fencing, wearables and computer vision to protect workers from getting too close to hazardous machinery. Adopt an IoT monitoring and management solution to reduce energy and fuel usage across your facilities and vehicle fleets and minimize your carbon footprint.
Reimagine your supply chain with real-time intelligence and smart digital solutions
Stay connected everywhere all the time
Access critical business applications, even in remote places. Reliable connectivity allows your crew and drivers to connect with their control centers and colleagues, without exception, enhancing productivity. Our connectivity solutions help you securely run your business on the road and at sea, just like any other office. With the right cybersecurity layers, your company, your assets and your employees are fully protected against all types of cyber threats.
Improve supply-chain decision making
Share real-time and historical data across business applications with the right stakeholders within and outside your organization, including third-party logistics providers. Well-orchestrated multi-cloud infrastructures and high-performing, automated business and IT applications enable you to increase efficiencies across your value chain and have a positive impact on KPIs, such as your on-time delivery rate. Data analytics, enabled by AI and machine learning, enable you to make better decisions to optimize your operations.
Increase agility and resilience with IoT
Digitally monitor and manage key assets to boost utilization rates, reduce waste and shrinkage (loss through theft, misplacement or breakage) and minimize carbon emissions. Track-and-trace solutions can help you optimize logistics processes, control delivery costs and understand the environmental impact of your operations. Whether it’s pallets, containers, vehicles or products, with our IoT solutions you will know the whereabouts and condition of your assets in real time. This enables you to improve delivery efficiencies, increase asset utilization, optimize energy consumption and turn costly corrective maintenance into predictive maintenance.
Take employee health, safety and well-being beyond regulations
Protect employees and make their daily lives better. With wearable safety gear, video monitoring, e-health and entertainment applications, you can keep your drivers and ship crews safe and more comfortable while on the road and at sea. People-counting solutions can help you ensure that physical distancing is respected in your warehouses and distribution centers. Make the daily lives of your employees easier and more productive with augmented worker solutions, such as AR/VR headsets, enabling remote maintenance of vehicles and AI-enabled routing to minimize distance traveled during daily deliveries.
