Intel announced the Intel Connected Logistics Platform (Intel CLP), a cost-effective internet of things (IoT) solution enabling users to monitor the condition and location of assets in any environment throughout the supply chain. With PA Consulting and Google Cloud, Intel CLP can help benefit businesses with near real-time supply chain visibility, while monitoring the quality, integrity and security of their shipments while on the move. Intel CLP helps provide near real-time supply chain visibility, while monitoring the quality, integrity and security of freight during every step in the supply chain.
Why It Matters: There is a strong need for transparency and integrity throughout the supply chain. Consumers ask for detailed shipment tracking; businesses ask for integrity control, especially for sensitive and high-value goods; and logistics companies need transparency for ongoing optimization of networks and assets. All of these requests can be achieved with the availability of valuable granular, real-time, reliable IoT data.
How it Works: Companies can use this data to mitigate risk in near real-time, extract actionable insights, and perform trend and predictive analytics. Companies can also optimize across all three of these criteria and significantly improve their efficiency and reduce supply chain costs. The flexibility of the solution allows for quick integration while solving a wide range of asset-tracking industry challenges.
Intel is scaling via multiple ecosystem channels, including cloud service providers, system integrators, OEMs and vertical solution integrators. Intel also offers a streamlined partner training and onboarding program for faster time-to-market.
