On 14 June, the ‘Advanced Technologies: Real Solutions in Logistics‘ seminar took place at the headquarters of the ICIL Foundation. The session was organised in collaboration with the i2CAT Foundation to delve into the technologies and use cases that can be important improvements and competitive advantages in the logistics sector.

 

Several companies of the IoT Catalan Alliance provided practical examples of how they apply technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) or the cloud to supply chains, tracking of merchandise or warehouse management.

 

Rosa Paradell, Innovation Business Unit Manager of Smart Cities at the i2CAT Foundation and coordinator of the IoT Catalan Alliance technical office, offered a vision of how IoT can fully interconnect global supply chains and the benefits of its application, among which there is the capitalisation of the data or the improvement of the products.

 

The i2CAT Foundation, led by Silvia Castellví, Innovation Business Unit Manager of Industry 4.0, presented the precise tracking solutions in interiors based on Ultra-Wide Band and RFID developed at the technology research centre.

 

Tracking of products is one of the areas of logistics most benefited by new technologies. Martin Longobuco, executive director of DataLong16, explained the advantages of monitoring systems based on IoT and cloud and the data generated through these processes. “Product tracking allows one step up the service level.”

 

For its part, Jaume Rey, CEO of Nexiona, stressed the importance of predictive maintenance, production sensoritisation and cloud alternatives to manage IoT logistics systems.
