Real-Time Transportation Visibility

Unreliable, inconsistent, and fractured is a common assumption about the data that comes from assets as they are transported through a supply chain. Businesses can spend hours checking information from multiple sources and still end up with outdated details or incomplete data on where, and how their critical assets are being handled. 

It is crucial for businesses to receive correct and timely data about status, location and estimated time of arrival, conditional reports, and the means of transportation and who is involved in the process to increase real-time transportation visibility and reduce any inefficiencies or incidents. 

 

What is RTTVP?: 

Real-time transportation visibility platforms, or RTTVP, provide businesses with real-time insights on the movement and location of goods or assets as they move through a supply chain. With accurate real-time data, businesses have full visibility of their goods at all times of the transportation process and can provide precise arrival estimates.  

 

Often combining cloud-based technology and GPS tracking devices, real-time transportation visibility platforms provide not only accurate arrival time estimates but also give up-to-date information on the location and conditions of assets during each stage of the transportation process up until delivery. GPS devices are used to send data to RTTVPs and allow for anyone with access to the platform to easily retrieve and interpret the information.  

 

What are the Benefits of RTTVP?: 

Incorporating an RTTVP into your supply chain process can have many benefits for organizations and provide greater transparency and insights into the logistics of transportation. The key benefits being reducing costs and optimizing time spent by businesses during the transportation of assets. The ability to automate processes also reduces the risk of human error and increases the reliability of the data.  

 

Real-Time Location 

Up-to-date, reliable data is highly beneficial in gaining greater transportation visibility. Real-time location provides live monitoring and tracking of goods and assets with accurate location updates. As assets travel nationally and internationally, dependable information on the location of goods and assets can provide full real-time transportation visibility during all stages of the shipping process.  

 

Optimized Operations 

Utilizing IoT technology allows businesses to monitor and manage their assets and optimize their operations to their fullest potential. Real-time transportation visibility provides data on which assets are being utilized and which are sitting idle and not being used. Settings can be adjusted to send notifications for when assets might need to be scheduled for routine maintenance and upkeep, reducing the chance of any unexpected repair costs.  

 

Reduced Risk 

Utilizing an RTTVP takes out the possibility of human error, leading to incomplete data that is not accurate. The automation of information being sent from GPS devices straight to a cloud-based platform that can interpret the information for its users. Compared to the manual process of humans recording and interpreting data, incorporating technology ensures more reliable information. 

 

Theft Prevention 

RTTVP’s can be helpful for theft prevention and recovery, should your assets get stolen. The discreet installation of GPS devices that can send real-time location data to the platform provides full visibility. Should the asset become stolen, the owner can be notified through the RTTVP and is able to switch the device into recovery mode to be recovered.
