Connecting the Supply Chain Dots to Form a Holistic Logistics Experience

The human arsenal might be loaded beyond all known limits, but it has still never possessed anything more valuable than that tendency of ours to grow on a consistent basis. This is because the stated tendency has notably enabled us to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is, by and large, based on its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to guide us towards a reality nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, a closer look will reveal how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real-world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centrepiece of every horizon. Having such an ingenious tool run the show, unsurprisingly enough, scale up the human experience from all conceivable directions, but even after reaching so far, this prodigious concept of technology will somehow continue to deliver every right good in the book. The same has become increasingly evident over the recent past, and truth be told, a newly-launched platform should make that trend better for the future and beyond.

Tag-N-Trac Inc, the company building the only full stack IoT solution for supply chain management, has officially launched a new platform called RELATIVITY (Real Time Visibility and Traceability), which is designed to give all the parties an integrated view of the shipment’s location, as well as its condition. But how does it make that possible? Well, going by the available details, the platform uses IoT sensors and specialized software to give you a SKU-level lowdown on every consignment. Talk about the IoT presence, there are three different layers of IoT infrastructure in play here. These layers are Edge Device Layer (Smart Sense Tags, Smart Sense Labels, FlexDot Labels), Connectivity Layer (Gateways/Carrier networks/Satellite networks), and Data Acquisition and Analytics Layer (the “control tower”). By deploying the relevant layers, buyers, suppliers, freight forwarders, 3PLs, 4PLS or carriers can achieve optimal visibility, condition monitoring, and workflow automation using customer-specific component configurations, such as airline-approved BLE and 5G cargo trackers.

“The past few years have shown how volatile the supply chain can be and how difficult it is for the enterprise to find the right logistics technology partner,” said Venu Gutlapalli, founder and CEO of Tag-N-Trac Inc. “Automation is the only path to building a more efficient and resilient globally supply chain. RELATIVITY is our first major step in bringing this much needed solution to market.”

With more than 250 billion pallets shipped annually via 50M+ shipping containers and other cross-modal transportation services, the demand for a smarter logistics solution has only grown more desperate in the last few years. Tag-N-Trac, on its part, doesn’t just fill the stated gap, but it also does so in an extremely seamless manner. For instance, the company’s technical setup lets customers go from concept to global deployment in less than six months. This aspect is further complimented by how the customers can, again in a pretty simplified way, integrate company’s solutions with their existing Transportation Management Systems, and therefore, realize a brand of logistics intelligence that they never had an access to before.

“Supply chain needs are sector-dependent which makes it difficult to purpose-build a single solution that’s going to work for everyone. We took a different, more modular approach,” said Joseph Reddy, CTO of Tag-n-Trac. “With RELATIVITY, we’re offering scalable solutions across multiple industries for shipping pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, high-value goods, and through multimodal logistics. “Our platform provides the fabric for visibility, condition monitoring and workflow automation, but most importantly, it eases the difficulties in IoT deployment to be repeatable and scalable at low cost,”
