Transportation/Logistics

Maximizing transportation and logistical networks

Enabling real-time tracking and fleet management easily

 

The Challenge

Moving objects from A to B, sounds simple. Loading and unloading. Ordering and supplying. These days, shifting goods around is rarely a linear process. We live in times of disaggregated, multi-regional supply chains. Nowadays, to get to ‘B’ often means traveling via C, possibly with a stop-over at D, might be more efficient.

Logistic networks are highly complex and interconnected. But that’s because they are optimized for maximum efficiency. In logistics, efficiency is everything - saving miles, saving time, saving costs, allowing for happy customers.

Think, asset tagging, quick response codes, tracking, speed, temperature sensors, on-board telematics and quality control. Data is no longer an add-on. It provides the essence of modern supply chains. With up-to-date data about inventory, status, location or demand, transporters can run a just-in-time delivery system.

The recent pandemic introduced additional complexity, as companies were forced to source locally with a decline in global transportation. Finding, tracking and sourcing became a challenge that only real-time data could solve.

The Solution

CrateDB is specifically designed to query large (or vasts) amounts of data and deliver critical information in real-time. Just what’s needed at any chosen moment in time to address a specific issue that requires an intelligent response.

If existing databases need to scale up fast, or current systems can’t cope with geospatial data (or can’t do so as quickly or accurately as needed), then CrateDB is the solution of choice.

 

Use Case
