The Challenges of Logistics 4.0 for the Supply Chain and Coollogger

Since the First Industrial Revolution in 1800 with the steam engine, technological changes have been playing out until the Forth Industrial Revolution.

With the appearance of 4.0 industry, there has been created a new productive context characterized by the development of new solutions to the chain supplying. Those look for increasing efficiency through the optimization of productive, logistic, commercial and management processes.

This industry development had implied a parallel evolution of 4.0 logistic. This way, now there are different alternatives in logistics to control merchandise.

This 4.0 logistic is based on intelligent systems and has three characteristics that may define it: interconnection, digitalization and cloud information.

A clear example of this change towards a 4.0 logistics are dataloggers of Coollogger. Our devices are based on ICTs that allow following the fluctuations of temperature in which merchandise is being transported or stocked in a quickly and precise way, and not losing time and money. Thanks to dataloggers it is possible to guarantee the cold chain safety without basing on the information of a third part.

Moreover, with our free app [for Android and iOS] you will be able to have a direct interaction with the goods through your mobile and have access to the information everywhere and at any time.

Furthermore, one of the main advantages that we offer in the framework of 4.0 logistics is the possibility to do not follow a lorry but a pallet or a box automatically through the cloud.

Nevertheless, all this implies an automatic generation of data. One of the biggest challenges of this new era is the transformation of register data during the supply chain into useful knowledge in order to take decisions in the different stages of the value chain. This is why in our app, we offer visual and summarised registered data. In order to facilitate and speed up decision-making and not to lose time when studying the information, we give the opportunity to filter fata with other variables of our choice like country, transporter or type of storage among others.

This new era allow us to optimize distribution chain and achieve that goods, workers and control mechanisms interact in real time for a better knowledge of the logistic activity and to increment efficiency. In addition, this collaboration among all the elements of supply chain makes the client the centre of the activity and it offers a greater benefit.
