The Internet of Things and Your Supply Chain

The Internet of Things is real, Morgan Stanley estimates that 75 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) by 2020, so what does IoT mean for your supply chain? By One Network Enterprises

August 20, 2017

This brief discusses how the “Internet of Things (IoT)” is related to a revolution taking place in supply chain management.

So what is the IoT?

Basically, it refers to data communication among a large range of assets or devices - from your fridge to your oven, or more pertinently from your inventory to its container, from the container to the carrier, from the pallet to the warehouse.

The more your assets can “speak” to one another and share data, the more they can work together to help you improve your processes.

This paper offers a quick and clear guide to the Internet of Things (IoT). It explains why this technology is so exciting for supply chains, and offers a few examples of how it and related technology can be used to dramatically cut costs by “techsourcing,” while maintaining complete control of your end-to-end supply chain and its data.

  • A simple explanation of what the Internet of Things (IoT) is
  • How the IoT will impact your supply chain 
  • The rise of “process robots” and why they will be an integral part of complex supply chains
  • The compelling advantages of “techsourcing” to this electronic workforce of “process robots,” and examples of how it will enhance your supply chain’s efficiency and data-sharing capabilities
