Transportation and logistics powered by Aruba

The transportation and logistics sector deals with a lot of disparate elements. From vehicles, containers and cargo to individual packages, how are T&L businesses supposed to keep track of assets that are always on the move?

The key, of course, is real-time connectivity. Which is where Aruba and the internet of things come in. Helping businesses to get tighter control over their productivity, costs, and overall operation. So they can maximise efficiency, and keep their business moving.

Enabling retail businesses to create seamless personalised customer experiences with custom mobile apps, wayfinding, and targeted campaigns, indoor location services are as easy and accurate as outdoor GPS.

Especially now Aruba has introduced the first self-locating wireless access points, enabling highly accurate indoor location – everywhere.

Location services provide benefits such as:

  • Lower IT costs
  • Increased revenue
  • Improved user experience

The future of transportation and logistics

The internet of things is ideal for freight carriers, couriers, haulage companies, and other businesses that move people and packages on a large scale, as it provides them with more visibility over their operations than ever before.

GPS sensors and accelerometers can track assets on the move, wherever they are in the world. Meanwhile, real-time object detection can help identify productivity bottlenecks in the warehouse.

There are security benefits too, thanks to license plate recognition cameras and software, which allow site access only to authorised vehicles. Plus, improving the tracking process means a lower risk of theft for critical assets and high value capital goods. Protecting assets, efficiency, and profit margins throughout the supply chain.
