As the world becomes ever more globalized and complex, manufacturers are turning to IoT (Internet of Things) technologies to power the next generation of supply chains. In a recent opinion piece with Supply Chain World, Tive Co-Founder and CRO Rob Stevens discusses some of the most significant ways in which IoT is impacting supply chain today.

On a tactical level, digital IoT tools enable increased visibility into the supply chain, making it possible for shippers to reduce waste and improve customer satisfaction. With access to real-time data regarding the location and condition of in-transit goods, companies are reducing unpleasant surprises and increasing revenues. Ultimately, IoT is enabling a new kind of data-driven decision making. New, previously invisible data sets are giving managers the data they need to optimize their supply chains on a macro scale, from end to end.
