Intel® Connected Logistics Platform
Service providers in the logistics and transportation industry operate at low margins—three to five percent—which they can improve by using this platform to boost efficiency. Intel is introducing its new Intel® Connected Logistics Platform to help you automate shipment tracking and increase shipment visibility (e.g. location, temperature, humidity, mishandling) of high-value goods as they move through the supply chain and to their final destination.
The savings can be substantial, such as detecting product damage early and rerouting the product to avert the cost of a complete, round-trip journey. End customers benefit from getting a jumpstart on implementing a recovery plan. Shippers can also gain a better understanding of the conditions that cause damage, making it possible to mitigate future damage and avoid costly claims.
Honeywell Connected Freight* Solution
If you ship high-value, high-risk goods, what you don’t know can cost you at any point. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Honeywell to create Connected Freight*—a shipment monitoring solution that brings you the right information, right at the package level, at the right time to make a real difference for your customers and your bottom line.

Intel® Solution Architecture
Intel’s shipment, trailer, and inventory visibility solutions can help reduce solution cost with its hub-and-spoke architecture, as shown at right. A mobile or fixed gateway (hub) connects to the cloud and runs applications locally, allowing expensive components (e.g., 4G radio) to be taken out of the sensor tags (spokes). Sensor tags provide product movement and condition data that is ingested and analyzed by gateways and applications running in the cloud. The architecture supports edge intelligence and high data fidelity to reduce false alarms.
An application program interface (API) simplifies communications between cloud applications and gateways. A typical application example is sending an alert to a logistics company so it can quickly respond to unexpected conditions a package encounters. Other application software possibilities are process tracking, inventory location tracking, and replenishment notifications.
