Efficient operations and supply chain management have long been a challenge in the logistics industry. Given the scale and complexity of global logistics, the safety and timeliness of shipments are not always guaranteed. Issues can be attributed to poor facility upkeep for perishable goods, lack of shipment visibility, and improper safety handling. Delays at any point in the complicated, multi-modal transport network can derail a quality, on-time delivery.

In this challenging environment, IoT technologies present significant opportunity for logistics organizations to avoid tampering via container identification, cargo monitoring, and security alerts, contributing unprecedented visibility and control to transform business operations. Connected solutions can help ensure perishable products are transported quickly and detect hazardous waste, offering valuable risk reduction that keeps companies and customers safe.

IoT solutions for logistics keep business in motion. KORE simplifies the complexity of IoT so logistics providers and their customers can move, secure, and manage what matters most.
