This month Pendello Solutions is taking a closer look at the Internet of Things (IoT) designed with businesses in mind. There are a plethora of IoT devices, but most of the well-known devices are intended for personal use in the home. Here at Pendello Solutions, business technology is our business, and we thought many of you might want to learn a bit more about how IoT is shaping the business world.
This week’s edition: DHL Expressed
Logistics, every business uses it, and every business relies on it to be successful. So, what if you could have faster, safer and more secure deliveries and pickups? With the collaboration between IoT, DHL, and Cisco, this is what has been created. Starting with the storage of your items before shipping, IoT can assist with safe and efficient storage (sensors and internet connected cameras) by monitoring temperature, humidity levels, and potential damage. These smart sensors are also able to assist in faster location abilities and real-time inventory updates. These abilities mean a usable product is getting on the truck and on its way to you even faster.
Then comes the transportation side of logistics. Today, with IoT, DHL is already able to track every single container in a freighter floating across an ocean and on its way to you. Within time, all vessels whether in the air, on the ocean or somewhere on the road will be trackable along with the location and the status of whether it has been moved or opened. These incredible sensors will also be able to track how often a truck is idled or what type of fatigue the driver is experiencing.
All of these incredible improvements are provided by IoT and can save you, as the end user, headaches and money. The ability to track logistics so in-depth will allow for logistics providers to create incredibly high efficiencies, safer work environments, and higher security among many other advantages for the provider and the end-user.
