Internet of Things in Logistics

The breadth of applications highlighted in this report underscores how IoT is impacting virtually every sector of the economy, and portends momentous changes for the logistics industry and society as a whole.

Together in close collaboration with Cisco, DHL launches this new trend report on a topic that fires the imaginations of both companies: the Internet of Things (IoT).

With the advent of IoT, internet connections now extend to physical objects that are not computers in the classic sense.

A connected pallet for example, can tell its owner the whereabouts and condition of their shipment and predict its delivery time down to the exact minute.

A connected fleet can link with commercial and private vehicles for on-the-fly consolidation.

A connected street light can sense the presence of cars and send environmental intelligence to drivers.

These are just some of many intriguing possibilities for IoT in logistics captured in this latest edition in the DHL Trend Research series.

The report serves as a thought-provoking and inspirational start in understanding the implications of IoT in logistics.

As we move from 15 billion connected devices today to some 50 billion by 2020, it is clear that we are only at the beginning of what certainly be an exciting journey for logistics innovation, a journey to connect the unconnected.
