Since Toyota first pioneered its innovative Lean production system in the 1930s, the automotive industry has been a trailblazer in developing data-driven strategies to optimize manufacturing processes. And thanks to new IoT (Internet of Things) technologies, we are now seeing those same companies begin to adopt Lean and Six Sigma optimization strategies on the supply chain management side.

But what does this actually look like? This recent Automotive Logistics op ed explores how IoT is changing the game in the automotive supply chain. From real-time monitoring to damage alerts to large-scale data analysis, IoT technologies are enabling new levels of visibility and efficiency throughout the supply chain.

With access to data, it becomes possible to perform root cause analysis of delays and last-mile damages at every step of the automotive supply chain, and ultimately, to understand and eliminate problems at the source. And Tive is at the center of this new IoT era. With our real time tracking and data analytics solution, we're optimizing the automotive supply chain from end to end.
