IoT COVID-19 solutions on Travel, Transportation and Logistics


Business Challenge

Business challenge

The travel, transportation, logistics, and hospitality sector has been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. While demand variabilities continue to swing, supply chain disruptions have severely affected the delivery of essentials such as food items, drugs, and PPE kits to affected areas—resulting in rising supply shortages. As organizations scramble to rethink their disrupted supply chains, ensuring the secure delivery of shipments at the right place, at the right time, and in the right condition becomes incredibly challenging as several routes pass through affected areas. Maintaining paper-based documentation processes is also turning out to be difficult as organizations align with social-distancing norms and reduced resources, introducing greater transparency and accountability into the custody management process. Meanwhile, tracing usage, inventory, and movement of healthcare kits and critical assets, as they are transferred across COVID-19 premises and workplaces, is essential to containing the spread of the virus and ensuring assets are utilized in a secure, optimal manner managing their life cycles effectively.

Our Proposition

Our proposition

Intelligent Shipment Monitoring (ISM) solution byIoT WoRKSTM utilizes in-shipment sensors to monitor critical environmental conditions to ensure the quality of drugs, vaccines, food, and other essentials in transit. It can be integrated with maps to deliver near real-time insights on location and recommendations for optimal COVID-19 free transit. It utilizes Blockchain technology to introduce zero-contact, digital custody management that is secure and brings in accountability and transparency.

Intelligent Asset Tracking and Management (IATM) solution is an end-to-end offering that leverages tracking sensors such as RFID and BLE, among others, on-premise IoT gateways, and offers cloud and on-premise deployment options for secure and scalable application—monitoring and automating real-time visibility and control of connected assets to introduce transparency into inventory usage and asset tracking and management processes, including bringing in automated checking and control of critical medical kit usage and movement across COVID-19-hit premises.

Live Social Distancing Monitoring (LSDM) solution combines radar sensors, AI models, and easily retrofittable distributed architecture that can provide real-time locational insights on workforce movements, identify potential hotspots, generate alerts that can help businesses proactively optimize their operations, monitor occupancy, and ensure disease-free premises.

The Impact

The impact

The ISM solution ensures 90% reduction in shipment damages, ensuring safer delivery of essentials, improvements of up to 50% in SLA compliance due to immediate, proactive, and actionable alarms and insights, and paves the way for economical, secure transactions via enterprise systems integration, and a virtually hack-proof Blockchain-based smart contract integration.

The IATM solution introduces almost 98-99% asset visibility and accountability in asset tracking and custody management, 80-85% improvement in asset inventory audit processes. The solution enables the reduction of asset write-off costs by almost 25-30%.

The LSDM solution enables businesses to automate social distancing, thus reimagining zero-contact premises, helping restore business continuity and operational profitability. And most important, ensuring real-time monitoring and maintenance of people and workforce safety.

As we continue our efforts to restore business normalcy in a supply chain disrupted heavily due to the pandemic, organizations must reimagine the role of IoT in bringing greater real-time visibility, accountability, transparency, quality assurance, and maximizing utilization of critical assets to ensure demand and supply variations can be catered to quickly and efficiently in the future. These solutions by IoT WoRKSTM empower next-gen organizations to lead an end-to-end transformation of their secure, zero-contact responsive supply chains.
