Intel recently announced Connected Logistics Platform (CLP), a cost-effective IoT solution enabling users to monitor the condition and location of assets in any environment throughout the supply chain.

With PA Consulting and Google Cloud, Intel CLP can benefit businesses with near real-time supply chain visibility, while monitoring the quality, integrity and security of their shipments while on the move. The platform provides near real-time supply chain visibility, while monitoring the quality, integrity and security of freight during every step in the supply chain.

“The platform provides clients a powerful solution across a range of different industry sectors for transparency of shipment progress and conditions. Some evaluations include findings of temperature excursions for more than 60 percent of the shipment duration, with route and duration improvement opportunities of up to eight hours on a 36-hour shipment. They are also finding significant deviations in shock measurements, experienced by sensitive products,” said JJ Van der Meer, partner at PA Consulting.

There is a strong need for transparency and integrity throughout the supply chain. Consumers ask for detailed shipment tracking; businesses ask for integrity control, especially for sensitive and high-value goods; and logistics companies need transparency for ongoing optimization of networks and assets. All of these requests can be achieved with the availability of valuable granular, real-time IoT data.

Companies can use this data to mitigate risk in near real-time, extract actionable insights, and perform trend and predictive analytics. They can also optimize across all three of these criteria and significantly improve their efficiency and reduce supply chain costs. The flexibility of the solution allows for quick integration while solving a wide range of asset-tracking industry challenges.
