Logistics-as-a-service solution enabled by Cloudleaf

Published on March 10th, 2021

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has chosen Cloudleaf’s Digital Visibility Platform as part of its new Logistics-as-a-Service offering which is part of the Qualcomm IoT Services Suite.

The solution from Cloudleaf will provide an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use logistics service that incorporates Qualcomm Technologies’ components, as well as Cloudleaf’s Digital Visibility software to enable a holistic, end-to-end view of the supply chain.

The Cloudleaf solution will drive adoption and utilisation of hyper-scale cloud, digital twin, Artificial Intelligence (AI)/Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G technologies within the supply chain.

COVID-19 exposed many vulnerabilities in global supply chains, most notably that leaders lacked a holistic understanding of the state of their supply chain, including knowing where products are, what condition they are in and the expected arrival times.

These questions are difficult to answer and the current processes, often manual with alarm clocks and spreadsheets, do not provide a 24/7, real-time view of the state of supply chains. Cloudleaf set out to address this issue with its leading-edge software to address every pain point along the supply chain.

Cloudleaf’s device and data-agnostic platform provides continuous visibility into the context, condition, timing and location of material and assets throughout supply chains. The Digital Visibility Platform leverages hyper-scale cloud, digital twin, AI/ML and IoT technologies to deliver continuous visibility and intelligence.

By combining real-time events from sensors, business processes, disruptions and risks, the Cloudleaf platform can virtualise and visualise the end-to-end supply chain. Cloudleaf has combined its Digital Visibility Platform with Qualcomm Technologies’ innovative and advanced 5G technologies, IoT devices and services, designed to enable a powerful Logistics-as-a-Service offering.
