Logistics Using a Single, Secure, Multimodal Supply Chain
A look into the challenges of the logistics industry and how hassle-free connectivity that can be managed from one platform can address them.
On a daily basis, companies store millions of assets, predominantly manufactured goods, in their warehouses. These assets are then transferred to logistics operators and subsequently shipped to customers through a multimodal supply chain which can comprise road, rail, sea, and air transportation. The assets are closely monitored throughout their journey to their final destination, with their location being tracked, and parameters such as temperature and vibration being frequently checked. Security mechanisms are also commonly used throughout the transportation process to ensure the safety and security of the assets.
The logistics process of a multimodal supply chain is a highly complex operation. Ideally, the value chain should facilitate the smooth, secure, and end-to-end transfer of data from the manufacturer’s warehouse to the customer. To achieve this, it is necessary to create a unified virtual network that functions as a wireless extension of the manufacturer’s corporate network, allowing the various links in the supply chain to seamlessly integrate. This may seem like a daunting task, but it is achievable. Furthermore, the physical connectivity service should be seamless, even when changing from terrestrial cellular to satellite links when sea transportation is involved, for instance.
Reliable connectivity from a trusted partner is a crucial element for any successful deployment of transport and logistics services. An ideal provider would offer seamless connectivity that can scale globally and be managed through a unified platform. The purpose of this whitepaper is to explore the difficulties that logistics operators encounter and how they can be resolved with the assistance of an Enterprise Network Operator (ENO), which brings together multiple systems, solutions, and platforms to build one single solution according to the needs and goals of an organization.
