Innotractor is currently driving an innovation project where medicine which is in transit can be tracked, traced and temperature monitored by means of an IoT tag.
This allows continuous verification against the agreed SLA. Measurement upon arrival has always been possible but with this project we enable continuous monitoring during shipment, allowing immediate action upon breach of SLA standards at any point in the logistics chain. By making failure in the logistics chain visible and actionable companies can reduce cost, save time and hold parties in the chain accountable for SLA breach. Actions upon SLA breach can be immediate rerouting, sending of a replacement shipment even before arrival of the initial shipment, acceptance and initiation of root cause analysis investigation.
This use case of applied IoT technology is not only applicable to medicine transport but to any logistics which contain perishable, valuable, fragile goods or even living goods like animals and plants.
