At the Internet of Things (IoT) Summit in Dublin recently, GTR spoke with logistics and digitisation experts to discuss the impact this pervasive technology is having on an industry that craves efficiency. Among the key points of feedback is that harvesting data from IoT devices is one thing, but  is almost useless unless you know what to do with it.

That’s why the likes of Cargotec and Evertracker, both featured in this video, are working to use artificial intelligence to leverage this abundance of data. Using smart, predictive technology allows them to forecast events that may affect their supply chain operations, therefore improving efficiency.
