Smart pallets and an Industrial Internet of Things platform for an evolved supply chain
Founding Year: 2014
Location: The Netherlands
By 2017, 70% of the world’s medicines will have to, by law, be tracked and traced at the pallet level. Pharmaceutical companies also rely on costly and sparsely accurate condition monitoring measures to make sure their cold chain is maintained. Tracking and tracing your assets as well as monitoring their condition is not a problem only faced by pharmaceutical companies.
We are evolving transportation pallets and materials handling by seamlessly connecting cargo information from industry warehouses, shop floors and fleets. Thanks to a mesh sensor network, that information becomes easily available to ubiquitous devices such as smartphones and cloud based web apps. That means real time visibility of assets with custom monitoring and alerting. We also offer Application Programming Interfaces to plug that cargo information straight into Warehouse and Fleet Management Systems.
