PA Consulting recently announced its work with Intel and Google Cloud to create the Intel Connected Logistics Platform (Intel CLP), which is a cost-effective internet of things (IoT) solution enabling users to monitor the condition and location of assets in any environment throughout every step of the supply chain.
The solution provides businesses with near real-time supply chain visibility, by monitoring the quality, integrity and security of their shipments while on the move. Following technological innovation and development work, we are now working with organisations across different industry sectors, to capture the value opportunities for their businesses.
JJ Van der Meer, a procurement expert at PA Consulting, comments:
“The Intel Connected Logistics Platform provides our clients a powerful solution across a range of different industry sectors for unprecedented real-time 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, up to a doubling in g-forces experienced by sensitive products, depending on the truck and road quality.”
