Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., collaborated with Honeywell, Morris Plains, N.J., to create the Intel Connected Logistics Platform (Intel CLP), a platform that gives companies unprecedented levels of insight into the status of assets during their journey through the supply chain, allowing them to make intelligent, real-time decisions that can minimize loss or spoilage of freight, maximize asset utilization and optimize end-to-end supply chain operations.
This partnership comes on the heels of Honeywell unveiling its Connected Freight solution, based on Intel’s Connected Logistics Platform. Honeywell’s Connected Freight solution features Intel CLP’s sensors that can be attached to packages or individual assets. These sensors communicate wirelessly with a cellular- or Wi-Fi-enabled gateway that can travel with the shipment or be installed as fixed infrastructure. The Connected Freight solution can provide real-time status updates of each shipment’s location, temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, tilt, pressure, proximity and exposure to light.
