What is happening: IBM and Sigfox have designed a new track and trace digital system for Group PSA, a French auto manufacturer.
System: The track and trace will allow Group PSA to know exactly where containers are located, as well as helping to prevent breakdowns, optimize rotation, and reduce waste.
IoT: The system uses IBM’s IoT tech, along with Sigfox’s 0G data transmission.
Future: Although it is currently only used to track containers between suppliers and Group PSA, the system will be rolled out to other European manufacturers in 2019.
What did Group PSA’s EVP of Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Yann Vincent say: “This ‘Track & Trace’ system allows us to know, individually and in detail, where our containers are located.”
