SOLUTION PROVIDER HELP DESK:
NineSigma, representing a Global Supply Chain and Logistics Company, invites proposals describing technology enabling the tracking of valuable assets and products within the supply chain.
In our increasingly connected world, there is an ever-growing desire to tap into the “Internet of Things” and to collect, analyze and leverage as much data as possible. The supply chain logistics industry is a very complex industry and is well suited to leverage data in real time. Being able to track valuable goods and products with increased speed and accuracy as they are transported, stored and sold has great value. NineSigma’s client is actively funding the development and implementation of tracking solutions for use in the global supply chain.
Our client has millions of valuable assets that move throughout the supply chain and they are seeking solutions that can facilitate the tracking of these assets across the supply chain. This includes but is not limited to:
While some technologies may enable both indoor and outdoor tracking, our client is also interested in partial solutions that can enable tracking for limited use cases.
Successful solutions will:
The client is also interested in solutions that can provide environmental information via sensors in addition to tracking.
Possible approaches might include, but are not limited to:
