The Internet of Things in Shipping`
This article from Deloitte describes how IoT has greatly increased opportunities for shipping and logistics companies.
"Many industries and business sectors are struggling to grasp the possibilities of data-driven technology, but companies in transport and logistics (T&L) are way ahead. By their very nature, the logistics providers that move objects by air, sea, rail, and ground have widely distributed networks and rely on rapid information about those networks to make decisions. As a result, they were quick to see the benefits of new sensor and connection technology, placing them at the forefront of the transition to a connected world."
