Cooperation for container tracking
Bolloré Transport & Logistics, Next4 and the IMT Mines Albi engineering school have signed a MoU with a view to developing new traceability functions for goods flows based on the study of data gathered by IoT sensors.
Next4 has developed a solution enabling its freight forwarder and shipping company customers to monitor containers around the world. In 2019, it initiated a joint research lab with IMT Mines Albi to co-design new innovations based on the real-time analysis of data from its trackers using artificial intelligence.
Bolloré Logistics launched real time monitoring, an offering based on the internet of things and smart data processing. The new solution developed by the B. Lab1 enables the end-to-end and real-time monitoring of shipments while guaranteeing the integrity of the goods transported.
Bolloré decided to join forces with this pooled research laboratory. It notably intends to equip shipments with Next4 trackers to analyse the data using artificial intelligence models currently under development, and thus propose new services to its customers. (mw)
