Various pieces go into logistics processes in companies. Keeping track of all those different pieces manually is time-consuming and can be complicated. Automating parts of the process can make your process easier and more efficient. What can you use to automate your process? The answer is a GPS tracking device.

Why It’s Important to Streamline Logistics Processes 

The supply chain process has many moving parts, but the two main parts are production and distribution. Today we’ll go over the distribution portion. 

Every company wants its products to get to the correct location on time. Manually keeping track of shipping status can be difficult. You can often only guess where something is based on its last known location. The best way to keep track of your remote assets is using a real-time location system or RTLS. An RTLS typically uses GPS technology to determine the location of an asset.  


 

Increase Your ROI by Investing in AirFinder Everywhere

  • Loss Prevention. Reduce the amount of loss that occurs during the supply chain process
  • Location Coverage. AirFinder Everywhere uses a combination of GPS, Cellular, and WiFi to determine location everywhere
  • Security Alerts. Know when a delay in shipment has occurred so the problem can be addressed immediately.

 

How GPS Tracking Devices Automate Processes

GPS is a well-known technology everyone uses. The primary use of GPS is navigation; many people don’t know that GPS can be used to provide the location of something that’s not with you. 

Logistics processes are streamlined when a GPS tracker is placed on a crate or pallet. The end user of the system can see the tracker in real-time. Using a GPS tracking system removes the manual tracking of each pallet on each truck. It’s crucial for warehouses to know the location of their shipping pallets. Lost pallets delay shipping and cost money to replace. 

GPS tracking devices automate supply chain processes.

Our Role in GPS Tracking

We created an RTLS solution, AirFinder Everywhere, that uses GPS technology to track and monitor remote assets in real-time. Our system doesn't use just GPS technology; it uses a combination of GPS, Cellular, and our own AirFinder Network. It allows you to track areas where GPS may not have service. The biggest reason AirFinder stands out from other trackers is that it can track the location of assets indoors and outdoors. Our solution also monitors the condition of your pallets. Monitoring your equipment can make you aware of any damage so managers can address the situation everything.
