IoT Connected Transportation: Big changes, Even Bigger Opportunities

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly transforming industries, and the world of transportation is no exception. As connectivity is enabled between modes of transport around the globe, countless businesses are looking for opportunities to solidify their place in the industry – now and into the future.

Wherever you fall in the spectrum of connected transport – from real-time shipment tracking to rideshares to fleet management and beyond – IoT has the potential to help you monitor the behavior of your devices (and your drivers) to improve safety and efficiency while lowering operational costs. However, in order to realize this potential, you must have in place the systems and processes to effectively optimize your business at scale.

This changes everything

IoT is changing the way we think about mobility. In its most basic sense, it’s allowing businesses to remotely track a trailer, fleet, or individual vehicle (be it a ship, car, bus, plane, train or boat) anywhere in the world. But it’s so much more than that.

IoT is making it possible to remotely gather information that can reveal opportunities to operate more efficiently, cost effectively, and intelligently. From route optimization to smart public transportation to crash prevention, the Internet of Things is transforming our understanding of transportation and offering insight into the myriad of ways we can improve it.

The problem is, it’s also introducing an enormous amount of data that’s threatening to swiftly overwhelm your connectivity team (if it hasn’t already). Without the right tools in place to consolidate, analyze, and act upon data gathered from IoT devices, you can’t expect it to deliver business results. Thus, this change in thinking must also be paired with a change in systems and processes.
