The technological advances have also reached the logistics operations, bringing more efficiency to processes of storage and distribution of goods. Among the new features is the Internet of Things (IoT), which has revolutionized the way we deal with technology and how it interconnects in many day-by-day situations.
Basically, IoT is the connection of different devices via the internet, integrating the physical world with the digital one. Today it is already adopted even in home appliances, home
management systems and equipment for personal use, such as watches. Because of this proximity to the consumer, it has gained popularity.
Such technology has also revolutionized logistics operations, enabling fleet management and storage and transportation systems, as well as real-time cargo monitoring.
Business Insider data, published by the website Computerworld, reveals that managing connected fleets will reach 90% of commercial vehicles in North America by 2020.
The numbers reveal a growing market, which is increasingly concerned about gaining efficiency using modern and up-to-date technologies.
It is the case, in which IACIT’s technology gains space. With the use of IoT, IACIT's refrigerated load monitoring system offers performance improvements, loss reduction and ease of management. The system, called RCS 0500, is the latest in refrigerated containers (Reefers) monitoring systems. Connected to the container refrigeration system, the RCS 0500 monitors the refrigerated environment the entire time, signaling when there is a problem, thus preventing the goods from suffering from temperature variation.
As it is connected to the Reefer controller, the collection unit extracts data automatically and connects to the concentrator via Wi-Fi for transmitting the information in a secure manner and in real-time. The concentrator unit establishes a connection to the cloud system, thus enabling users to access the information in a safe Web environment.
