50 Most Admired Companies to Watch 2022
Efficient supply chains rely on fast, accurate, effective tracking of raw materials, products, shipments and fleets, wherever they are in the world. As the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution transforms every part of the supply chain, it’s worth exploring the different technologies that you can use to monitor and measure the movement, storage and other aspects of goods. Tracking technology allows you to definitively understand exactly where goods are at any particular time, so that transfers between supply chain partners are accurate and up-to-date. Manufacturers, logistics providers and other organizations will know when goods are going to arrive making it easier to plan production and shipping schedules. Location tracking can enhance security for transporting goods as you’ll know where they are at every step of the process. This can reduce the risk of theft or other losses. Supply chain management relies on high-quality data. A combination of real-time positioning and easy-to-use reporting applications gives organizations the confidence they need.
