The IOT Revolution is having a profound effect on logistics and has changed the way in which the companies operate in fulfilling their logistical requirements. IOT based asset tracking using long range networks, or Low power wide area networks (LPWANs) help companies accurately track their inventory during transportation. Fleet management using GPS and other technologies help in gathering real time data, about the vehicle location and condition. Data provided by Bluetooth tags and beacons, is useful in small spaces and retailers use this insightful data to track customer flow and promotional offers.
