Weather events, cargo theft, and other threats to business continuity are on the rise. You may not be able to prevent unexpected disruptions, but the right tools can assure that you react sooner rather than later. 

If you’re apprehensive about implementing sensor-based logistics into your supply chain, consider the following statistics:

  • $30 billion of cargo is stolen every year.
  • 71% - 87% of global cargo theft happens while cargo is in transit.
  • Over the past 20 years, extreme weather-related disasters have increased by 83%.
  • In 2021, trucking companies in the United States suffered a record deficit of 80,000 drivers.
  • In 2022, 73% of warehouse operators experienced labor shortages.

The IoT-powered sensors that Cargo Signal attaches to global freight track real-time data about shipments, providing end-to-end supply chain visibility.

Are You Ready to Implement Sensor-based Logistics?

Ask yourself:

  • Am I unable to track my shipments and inventory in real time?
  • Have I been unable to create contingency plans in the face of world crises or extreme weather events due to a lack of real-time data?
  • Am I experiencing theft, damage, or delay of my cargo in transit, without any ability to troubleshoot in real time?
