Post-Expo 2017: K.Hartwall to develop IoT innovation for tracking postal assets

LinkedIn +

Visitors to K.Hartwall’s stand at Post-Expo 2017 will learn about the company’s new Internet of Things (IoT) solution, designed for tracking postal assets and measuring performance.

Posts spend a huge amount of time and energy choosing the best load carriers and other assets to support their operational processes. However, such assets can often become lost if they have not been fitted with the suitable tracking technology.

By the end of 2017, K.Hartwall will launch an affordable and easy-to-deploy solution for tracking and managing assets, in real time, in open supply chains. The solution contains cloud-based asset management software, mobile solutions, proprietary network solutions for warehouses, and sensor technologies for the assets.

A battery-operated network can be set up in postal warehouses and sorting centers in a matter of hours. Sensors are attached to the assets and a mobile application tracks them outside the warehouse premises. Hundreds of thousands of load carriers can be located in the same space without affecting the accuracy of the reading.

The solution ensures that collected data is analyzed and alerts are created for easy asset management and optimized fleet rotations. Postal operators will gain a new real-time visibility of their supply chain by analyzing loop times, dwell times and efficiency.

To learn more about K.Hartwall’s IoT tracking solution visit stand 9090 at this year’s Post-Expo in Geneva, Switzerland, taking place from September 26-28.
