Market Driver

The Connected Logistics Market is experiencing significant growth due to the increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) in Supply Chain Management (SCM) systems. IoT technologies enable real-time tracking of shipments, gaining popularity in industries like manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation. IoT devices and sensors installed in storage facilities and containers transmit data to SCM teams, providing crucial information on product conditions and delivery status. Perishable goods, such as vaccines, require specific temperature ranges to avoid damage. IoT can detect and control technical faults in refrigeration systems, preventing potential damage. With the increasing number of IoT devices, managing and maintaining data becomes challenging. IoT solutions help logistics firms capture and analyze data from these devices using statistical modeling techniques. RFID, sensors, barcodes, and GPS are among the technologies used to monitor and manage physical assets efficiently in transportation and logistics. Companies like Tech Mahindra and HCL Technologies offer IoT solutions for cold storage management, allowing teams to track and monitor the movement of cold storage containers and carriers. By 2026, the number of smart connected devices is projected to reach 47 billion, underscoring the importance of IoT solutions for managing and analyzing data. 

The Connected Logistics Market is experiencing significant growth as businesses embrace advanced technologies to streamline their logistical operations. Cloud platforms and the Internet of Things (IoT) are driving innovation in areas like order processing, financial transactions, shipping, warehousing, and transportation. Value-added logistics services are becoming increasingly important for online shopping and retail goods, with linked logistics systems ensuring interoperability between different systems. Cutting-edge technologies like intelligent transportation solutions, fleet telematics, and cellular IoT connectivity offer real-time transportation visibility, enabling route planning, disaster preparedness, and efficient use of resources. Autonomous logistics trucks and LoRa sensors are revolutionizing the transportation sector, while RFID tags, sensors, communication devices, and tracking devices enhance warehouse and fleet management. Governments are also playing a role in shaping the market through national logistics policies, with railways and roadways being key transportation modes. The focus on reducing frictional resistance and increasing carrying capacity is a priority for retail and e-commerce businesses, making managed services, consulting, and analytics solutions essential for optimizing logistical operations. Last-mile delivery and the role of logistics 4.0 in the retail and e-commerce sectors are also major trends to watch.
