Kerry Logistics Introduces IoT Smart Sensor Solution

Kerry Logistics has announced their intent to bring Internet of Things (IoT) technology into the fold with the introduction of smart sensors that enable total supply chain visibility and enhanced security measures. The sensors also help to enable real-time information throughout the digital supply chain. Kerry Logistics says they are able to provide timely and useful data to international customers for agile decision making and response to achieve ultimate supply chain optimization.

The sensor-based logistics solution utilizes smart sensor devices to monitor cargo across ocean, air, and ground transportation around-the-clock. The devices, accepted in over 190 countries across the globe, transmit seamless data on location and environmental variables including temperature, pressure, tilt, shock, humidity, and pilferage to multiple stakeholders along the supply chain, facilitating their cooperation and timely reaction to unforeseeable circumstances.

“End-to-end visibility has become a prerequisite to the agility to any supply chain,” Mathieu Biron, Managing Director – Global Freight Forwarding of Kerry Logistics, said. “Global supply chains are increasingly complex. Our adoption of smart sensor provides international customers with greater visibility and control, thus improving the quality of their operations, exception management, and demand planning. And do so at lower operating costs.”

Sensor-based logistics solutions are particularly useful for time and environmental-sensitive shipments such as in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. It also adds huge value to premium goods including high value consumer electronic products. Both consignees and shippers are able to obtain first-hand information about the physical environment of the cargo through constant personalized alerts or via Kerry’s KerrierVISION visibility portal.

“With the adaptive smart sensor solution, our customers can make immediate decisions at any stage across the supply chain based on actionable intelligence, which enables them to minimize loss and enhance efficiency. We anticipate the sensor-based logistics solution becoming an indispensable part of the supply chain with the increasing adoption of IoT in the global logistics practices,” Mr. Biron added.
