IoT and Logistics: The Future is Today
In the logistic world, as well as in general in the manufacturing world, a global phenomenon is underway: The industry 4.0
A transformation moving towards a complete digitization of business processes.
Logistic Solutions 4.0 are based on innovative technologies that allow you to make complex decisions in a very rapid world. Logistic 4.0 allows you to obtain new storage, handling, and transport systems where you can integrate and optimize the following 3 factors:
1) Physical automation
3) Decision-making process.
The advantages for the logistics sector are simply huge. Let’s think, for example, of an integrated communication amongst machines, information systems and objects.
An automatic communication between these three factors can guarantee better planning and management of freight reception activities and storage, thanks to an « automated » dialogue between factories and warehouses.
But not only, we’re thinking of the great advantages for the preparation of orders and shipments thanks to the interconnection between warehouses located in various locations and means of transport. It is all about improving the efficiency of your supply chain End to End, improving customer service and satisfaction, optimizing supply chain costs, and capturing market growth potential.
The main benefits made by logistics solutions 4.0 have generated an improvement in the following areas:
- Productivity (48%) ;
- Visibility (37%) ;
- Traceability (27%) ;
- Security (23%) ;
Supply chains are at the core of business management and involve many parties. Thus, a supply chain is a system of retail organizations, people, activities, information, and resources working together to create and move a product or service from supplier to customer. Natural resources, raw materials and components are transformed into a finished good during the process and delivered to the end-customer.
Supply chain structures are complex, mainly integrated between various companies and require collaboration between them.
Supply chain integration is a key factor of business performance and is therefore a major concern for firms. Indeed, international supply chain management raises a certain number of concerns, among which:
- The challenges inherent to globalization and its drifts.
- Cost containment and its fast-paced approach
- Risk reduction and its long-term performance
- Individual product item tracking .
Supply chain risks are associated with the day-to-day management operations such as safety stock and outgoing shipment lead time or overtime. RFID&NFC technology will support Supply chains and will support Retail store (stock inventory & antitheft& reverse logistics process) including a clear omnichannel digital strategy and would become a key strategic competitive advantage.
Weak supply chain management will lead to inaccurate results: the clearest answer of disruptions or can be found in any industries, such as the cosmetic, food, pharmaceutical or textile and luxury industries, which concern consumer product safety and or product quality. Lack of visibility on the process increases the risks of product returns (reverse logistics), waste, losses, delays and reduced quality.
How could they engage an efficient qualified one to one consumer interaction?
