IoT Now’s Transport 360 bucks the trend

These days it’s rare that publishers launch a new magazine, but that’s what we’re doing here. The publishers of IoT-Now.comIoT Now and are pleased to be able to extend their reach with a global print publication that is also available digitally. So, what will you find in IoT Now Transport 360?

Well, we are focusing on Automotive Transport, Fleet Management and Logistics. Our experience has shown that these are the sectors that are being most heavily impacted by new services enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT). In this launch issue we bring you News, Views, Events, Case Studies and Interviews from around the world. Our Front Cover interview is with Sean Riley a director of Germany’s Software AG (page 8) and it looks at the costs and opportunities enabled by IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Data Analytics.

Led by IoT Now Transport’s Consulting Editor, Johan Fagerberg (CEO of Sweden-based Berg Insight), we investigate the accelerating convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) (page 24), and how transportation safety and service efficiency are being improved by embedded IoT solutions (page 26). We describe how to choose the right IoT platform for smart transport (page 28). And we compare advances in multi-modal public transport (14) and commercial freight movement (12). Finally, it is my pleasure to introduce Annie Turner, who has been appointed as Editor of Annie is a highly experienced journalist who has been writing about technology and its impact on industry, the economy and society since the 1980s. In her first article for us (page 12) she tells you how to keep your cool in intermodal transport.


We all hope you enjoy Transport 360. Connect withus on Twitter @IoTNowTransport
