Kerry Logistics introduces new IoT solution for visibility and security

Kerry Logistics

Kerry Logistics has established an Internet of Things (IoT) solution for international shipments with the introduction of smart sensor, which enables total supply chain visibility and security measures. Real-time information is available on the digital supply chain allowing Kerry Logistics to provide data promptly. International customers will therefore be able to make decisions and respond instantly.

The sensor-based logistics solution utilises smart sensor devices to monitor cargo across ocean, air, and ground transportation at all times and is accepted in over 190 countries around the world. The devices transmit data on location and environmental variables including temperature, pressure, tilt, shock, humidity, and pilferage to multiple stakeholders along the supply chain. This will enable cooperation and timely reaction to unforeseeable circumstances.

The sensor-based logistics solution is particularly useful for time and environmental-sensitive shipments such as in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. It also adds 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 personalised alerts or via KerrierVISION visibility portal.

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. 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.”
