Constantly monitoring warehouses and mobile assets to ensure there is no deterioration of product quality
They monitor temperatures round-the-clock in both warehouses and trucks. Smart sensors immediately send alerts of irregularities. They identify the issue and resolve it right away, so bigger problems are effectively prevented. Smart warehousing has prevented spoiling of products and subsequent wastage.
Remote monitoring is a blessing in disguise, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic when physical distancing is the need of the hour. Supply chain responsiveness has got a significant boost as they can easily track inventory items with status and position in real time. It has minimized revenue leakage due to safe storage, transportation, and on-time delivery.
Ensure safety of drivers while they are out making deliveries
Supply chain management falls apart without timely delivery, which in turn depends upon the efficiency of drivers and well-optimized routes. With the aid of real-time information using synchronized alerts, they are able to monitor driving patterns, and find out about unsafe driving behaviour as well. Using preventive analysis and predictive maintenance, they can devise prescriptive actions accordingly.
Maintaining Covid-19 safety protocols while ensuring smooth operation
Following hygiene and physical distancing protocols is fine, but the threat of getting infected still remains for drivers who take that risk each day. Using Connected Logistics, they are able to chalk out a safe route for drivers travelling interstate. They have access to maps detailing containment zones and hence can mark Covid-19 affected warehouses – the data is sent to drivers so they know which places to avoid.
