IoT is also leading in new applications in transport and logistics, enabling processes to be set up as efficiently and effectively as possible. Rotterdam has the largest port in Europe, where thousands of containers are transported, shipped and transshipped every day. By providing the containers with sensors, the IoT can track and trace them anytime, anywhere.
IoT in transport and logistics
- Check loads on their way to other countries
- Sensors within storage: A container of perishable products benefits from its own controlled atmosphere, such as temperature and humidity
- Continuity in trucks
- Dynamic road signs that adapt to the current traffic situation
