Especially when it comes to perishables, the consequences extend beyond the bottom line. A full 30% of all perishable produce and products never make it all the way from the farm to the table, according to a recent IoT@Intel column. It’s a disheartening case of waste and yet an opportunity to apply high tech to a pain point that impacts growing populations and areas where food insecurity runs high.

Given all that’s at stake, the value of a connected logistics platform is beyond question. And the next generation of successful supply chain management—known as logistics 4.0—will leverage edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) to yield real-time automated, sense-and-respond feedback mechanisms. It will also place cybersecurity and the safe handling of data at a premium, as the EU’s 28 member countries adapt to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Effective May 25, businesses must report security breaches the EU’s Information Commissioner’s Office, a voluntary action prior to the GDPR.
