Electronics manufacturers lose billions of dollars every year due to late and damaged shipments. But with new IoT technologies, these companies are gaining real-time visibility into the location and condition of their in-transit goods. 

In this recent op ed published with electronics supply chain publication EPS News, we discuss the benefits of IoT for the electronics industry.  For many electronics manufacturers, in-transit damage is a major concern, as fragile goods such as computers, cellular components, and other expensive electronic products are particularly susceptible to damage when dropped or otherwise mishandled. With an IoT-powered visibility solution, these companies can identify the root cause of product damage and delays and use quantitative analytical tools to optimize from end to end.
