IoT enables asset tracking across the entire supply chain
Having the ability to track exactly where any mobile asset is in the entire supply chain is particularly useful when looking for items that have been stolen or lost. The Internet of Things (IoT) can be used to create a more efficient and agile network to support mobile asset tracking, thereby delivering a wide range of business benefits, writes Benoît Tournier, the marketing director for Mobile IoT Solutions at Sierra Wireless.Read More
