Real-time logistics management is a system for tracking and managing the movement of goods and resources in real-time. This can include tracking the location and status of shipments, monitoring the availability of transportation and other resources, and coordinating the movement of goods from one location to another. Real-time logistics management systems typically use advanced tracking and communication technologies, such as GPS and RFID, to provide real-time visibility into the movement of goods and resources.
The main advantage of real-time logistics management is that it allows businesses to more effectively and efficiently manage the movement of goods and resources, which can help to reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction. It can also help businesses to respond more quickly to changes in demand and other factors that may affect the movement of goods and resources. This is particularly important in industries where timely delivery is critical, such as the transportation and logistics industry.
Enhance decision making and improve service levels with real-time logistics management by:
- Identifying and tracking the location of assets or people in real-time
- Leveraging enhanced metadata such as speed, direction, or spatial orientation.
- Predicting arrival and delivery times
To build a real-time logistics management system with Infinyon Cloud, you will need to follow these steps:
Define your requirements: Determine what you need the system to do, including what types of goods and resources you will be tracking, how you will track them, and what information you need to monitor and manage in real-time.
Choose a platform: Select a cloud platform that meets your needs, such as InfinyOn Cloud, and set up an account.
Set up the infrastructure: Set up the infrastructure required to support your system, including any necessary servers, databases, and other resources.
Integrate tracking and communication technologies: Integrate technologies such as GPS and RFID into your system to provide real-time visibility into the movement of goods and resources.
Develop the system: Design and develop the system using tools and frameworks available on the cloud platform, such as APIs and integrations with other systems.
Test and deploy the system: Test the system to ensure it meets your requirements and is reliable, and then deploy it to production.
Monitor and maintain the system: Monitor the system to ensure it is functioning properly, and perform regular maintenance and updates as needed to keep it running smoothly.
InfinyOn Cloud streamlines real-time logistics management by collecting data from endpoints in any geo-location with fast and efficient single digit millisecond latency. InfinyOn Cloud makes it simple to set up, deploy and manage your cluster. This demo shows the power of InfinyOn Cloud for real-time logistics management. We combine 2 real-time data sources from the Helsinki public transit system and predict arrival times for buses.
