Supply chain management has become more and more global and the growing demand for e-commerce has led to an increase in shipments. Therefore, it is important to find solutions that will optimize the logistics process in terms of efficiency, load capacity, and planning. The connected ecosystem is required to remotely control elements of the transport process.
For these processes of goods, IoT technologies are important in terms of efficiency, load capacity, and planning. IoT helps to track objects and remotely control elements of the transport process. Iot technologies are also required to increase efficiency, sustainability, and, in the case of transport, safety. However, cellular coverage is not sufficient for global connectivity and only satellite communication shows the ways to extend the reach beyond the limits of terrestrial infrastructure.
Satellites-based IoT communication enables to ensure reliable data transfer and eases supply chain management and other end-to-end processes, especially in places where communication may be limited.
