Abstract

Tracking the logistics networks is considered as a highly motivated approach for distribution and delivery companies in recent days. It is nowadays considered as a prime concern for manufacturing companies to ensure safer and timely arrival of their shipments. In this paper, we have presented an overall approach to track the real-time delivery shipment from the starting point to the end customer. The state-of-the-art technologies and devices are implemented in this study in order to fulfil the tracking objectives. A pilot case is presented with the view to implement and manage the tracking technology in a practical point of view. Various tracking data from this pilot case was collected and analyzed in terms of location, temperature and humidity of the case shipment. In this research study, we have considered the operational ways of the tracking devices in respect to frequency of data transfer, interpretation of the data in a useable format, specification of the tracking devices (battery life, power consumption, data roaming, etc), essential programming for the devices, etc., with the view to implement the tracking technology on delivery networks. The prospects and implications of the tracking technologies for managing the business logistics are discussed and presented in conclusion.
