IoT Forum on Logistics

IoT Forum on Logistics

The IoT Forum is focused on discovering innovation, exchanging knowledge, growing professional networks, and above all building partnerships across the entire IoT ecosystem. 

IoT Forum members meet monthly in Silicon Valley to discover new companies and technologies, meet partner prospects in person, review market opportunities across the wide spectrum of connected things, and deep dive into a specific segment with the help of buyers and experts. This month, we are focused on Innovation in Logistics.

Join the tech scouts from telecom companies, industrial vendors, system integrators, and IoT investors to explore the innovation and opportunity for IoT across logistics. Starting with a customer case study that introduces a new product, its technology, and its customer, attendees will also have time to meet interesting IoT startups, explore product demo tables, network with IoT Forum members and participate in our interactive panel discussion with experts in logistics.

IoT and connected devices show incredible promise for revolutionizing logistics and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). IIoT is the driving technology behind the Fourth Wave of the Industrial Revolution. 

IIoT technologies, tracking, and connected things are blurring the lines between physical goods, processes, ERP systems, transportation, the cloud, and technology. Goods, devices, tools, people, and equipment can be tracked through the system, and managed and optimized to increase productivity, reduce waste, and increase profit.

We've had the ability to track goods for some time now, but recent changes are enabling a number of new business cases:

  • the radical drops in device cost
  • better connectivity pricing
  • better radio technologies like NB-IoT, Wi-Fi.
  • better batteries

Because of these technologies we're seeing more horizontal-market, off-the-shelf logistics and tracking devices, and also better implementation of customized vertical solutions. In a world were hobbyists can track intercontinental container ships, the power of enterprises to know where their resources are, in real-time and at a very granular level, empowers them to:

  • Store less inventory
  • Have less spoilage
  • Reduce theft or losses
  • Reduce outages or stoppages
  • Optimize production, sales, costs, and profits

Our panel of logistics experts and industrial buyers will share their thoughts on how IoT re-invigorates the decades old field of ERP. Then, we will get their insight on what logistics buyers need - from sensors and monitoring to analytics and cloud services.
