Land, Sea & Air

IoT has transformed the transport and logistics sector in many ways. IoT-enabled GPS allows for real-time tracking, to monitor vehicle location at all times, driver behaviour, optimise routes and avoid delays. IoT sensors are used to track temperature and humidity in cold chain logistics. IoT technology is also used to assess road conditions and ease congestion.

Telematics

Telematics systems collect data from IoT sensors installed in vehicles. These sensors provide detailed data from vehicle location and driver behaviour to fuel efficiency and wear and tear of the vehicle. IoT also helps fleet managers ensure regulatory compliance. IoT sensors are also used to track goods in transit and provide the customer with information on the status of their delivery.

More about this company

From planning efficient routes to tracking vehicles and assets, transport and logistics are industries that rely on visibility over their processes. IoT and mobile connectivity give that in spades, while saving time and money to boot.

But many companies lack the time, resources, or expertise to get started with IoT.

We’re here to fix that.

We help businesses optimise processes, enhance decision-making, increase revenue, and more through custom-built IoT and mobile connectivity solutions, available across 185 countries and 960 networks.

Founded in 2015, we’re a team of creators and tech lovers who believe things work better connected. We’re UK-based, but hail from all over the world.Like our namesake—the supercontinent that connected the world before separating into the continents of today—we’re connecting everything.

Tracking

IoT technology offers real-time tracking. IoT-enabled GPS trackers help companies to track connected vehicles and cargo such as pallets and parcels. Tracking sensors can also be used to alert companies if their asset is lost, stolen or damaged.

Company operating in this Application type:

Traffic Conditions

IoT technology is used to monitor traffic conditions. IoT-enabled traffic lights can detect weather conditions and congestion. IoT is used to analyse traffic to find alternative routes during high commuter hours. IoT-enabled sensors embedded in roads can detect accidents and report them.

Company operating in this Application type:

Route Management

IoT technology can help to reduce traffic congestion on roads by identifying areas with heavy traffic. IoT-enabled sensors and traffic cameras work together to ensure the rapid movement of vehicles, reroute them or provide alternate shorter routes to deal with an increase in traffic volume.

Passenger

IoT has improved passenger travel from ports, train stations and airports by making it cheaper, safer, more convenient, and sustainable. Real-time vehicle tracking allows passengers to know the exact timing of arrival and departure. IoT helps to notify and reroute passengers and vehicles when there are disruptions to public transport such as road closures and weather conditions.

Ports

IoT helps to create a better passenger experience at ports, marinas and on vessels. IoT-enabled location services provide passengers and crew with real-time information on ship arrival and departure times. Smart ports are able to track millions of shipments, passengers, and vessels. IoT helps to monitor environmental impact, maintain safety standards, and boost efficiency and productivity in ports.

Company operating in this Application type:

Airports

Smart airports use IoT technology to better manage passengers, security, baggage, aircraft, ground staff, and airport operations. Real-time monitoring can locate staff throughout the airport, IoT-enabled sensors monitor foot traffic to reduce choke points, IoT is used to track travellers and help get them to boarding gates.

Company operating in this Application type:

Stations

IoT applications for stations include real-time tracking of buses and trains, IoT-enabled ticket scanners that relay information to train conductors and transit agencies, tracking to personalise travel information, IoT-enabled sensors in driverless tube carriages that detect obstacles.

Company operating in this Application type:

Operational Monitoring

Transport agencies use IoT technology to monitor their assets and infrastructure and use that data to develop more efficient processes, minimise operating costs and improve system capacity.

Cargo

IoT technology has been a gamechanger for cargo monitoring. IoT-enabled GPS and IoT sensors allow business to track the status, location and condition of cargo being transported. IoT sensors are attached to freights, pallets and containers so fleet operators can monitor and manage shipments anywhere in the world. This data helps make smarter decisions about supply and demand and route options.

Fleet Management

IoT applications for fleet management are vehicle tracking and locating, ensuring compliance with electronic logging devices, monitoring driver behaviour to improve fuel use and safe driving policy, predictive fleet maintenance and reducing insurance costs.

Ports

IoT applications for ports include monitoring trade flows and the destination of goods, expected delivery times and loading of cargo. IoT-enabled GPS and geo-referencing alert warehouses for pick up and deliveries and handling requirements.

Warehouses/Logistics

IoT applications such as IoT-enabled devices that scan warehouses to determine the best layout and configuration for optimal efficiency and productivity. IoT sensors that monitor the quantity and quality of goods inside warehouses. IoT-enabled shelf sensors that locate and manage inventory.
