Shorter waits for HGVs, more efficient handling
DHL Supply Chain and Huawei Technologies have put a narrowband internet of things (NB IoT) application into operation at an automotive site in Liuzhou (China).
The application - new standardized radio technology for the internet of things - uses the existing net infrastructure. This, in turn, reduces the amount of investment.
The solution, which simplifies and streamlines yard management for inbound to manufacturing logistics, shortens HGV waiting times, raises the efficiency of material handling and minimizes production downtime. (ben)
