Benefits of Implementing IIoT in the Logistic Industry
1. Cost Reductions and Revenue Gains
The cost reductions that are related to Industrial IoT (IIoT) are throughout the entire logistic process. Human labor costs can be significantly reduced when intelligent processing is put in place. In flee management, accurate IIoT can monitor the location, mileage, fuel rate, and tank level, making the routes optimization possible, therefore saving more fuel.
2. Improve Efficiency
By connected and integrated the cargo, operators, and facilities with a complex IIoT system, logistics processes are mapped transparently and flexibly in real-time. As aforementioned, the IIoT can collect data such as location, mileage, fuel rate, and tank level. These data can be further used to improve the efficiency of delivery.
3. Enhance Safety
The critical mission of Industrial IoT is to improve safe driving (both the driver’s safety and the assets’ safety). By integrated IIoT in logistic processing, the operator can receive a real-time alert when the driver or the cargo’s condition is abnormal, making a quick response and avoiding undue harm to the fleet.
