How the Internet of Things (IoT) is Impacting the Future of Supply Chain Management

Though often overlooked, the application of IoT in supply chain management is already leading to exceptional changes and developments in international trade landscape.

From sensors that can provide detailed visibility of items in transit, to cloud platforms that can be deployed to optimize fleet management and load dispatching, several IoT technologies are already being leveraged by many logistics operators not only to ensure efficient operations but to gain an edge on their competitors and build their brand.
