IoT technology enables transportation and logistics companies to track specific shipments in real-time, to ensure that goods were delivered efficiently, and that customers are informed about the location of their delivery.
Today, many logistics companies utilize IoT sensors and software throughout their organizations to collect and exchange data, in order to increase supply chain efficiency and visibility. However, there must be a secure cellular network connection to track goods and assets as they move in and out of networks.
For example, in the shipping industry, vessels are constantly moving goods across state and border lines. As they are moving in and out of network coverage when they travel between ports, through waterways, and across oceans, one of the biggest challenges they face is staying connected at all times.
Satellite communications can be expensive, as can roaming on “away” cellular networks. Having the availability to dynamically switch between both networks and network technology cuts costs and improves shipping communications across a wide range of lot use cases.
