Supply chain and logistics

Realize your Supply Chain 4.0 operation. Intelligent, automated, digitalized, end-to-end.

The introduction of accessible and easy to deploy technologies have opened a wide range of automation and digitalization opportunities for Supply chain and Party Logistics (PLs) companies. 1PL, 2PL, 3PL and 4PL companies can make the move to the Supply Chain 4.0 era and capture the extraordinary benefits:

  • Reduce costs by minimizing supply chain resource waste
  • Improve cycle time by operating with greater efficiency
  • Build transparency with accurate, real-time end-to-end supply chain visibility
  • Adapt to changing demand with flexible supply patterns
  • Customize and personalize order delivery experiences for end customers

Gaining the full advantage from your Supply Chain 4.0 operation requires a resilient and pervasive, high-performance network infrastructure.

Get Supply Chain 4.0 ready with four essential building blocks

With Nokia as your trusted network partner you can put these building blocks into action for an intelligent, digitalized and automated supply chain.

Warehouse Automation

Cost pressures, tougher SLAs, booming eCommerce markets and global impacts such as COVID-19 have pushed warehouses to utilize more robots and automated systems. This dramatically improves your productivity, ensures maximum uptime and reduces costs

Internet of Things (IoT)

Get ready for a future where all things are connected – thanks to new and advanced sensors available in the market. Warehouses are already employing temperature, health monitoring, energy, light, structural and machine sensors for a wide range of uses cases. Whether it is worker safety, predictive maintenance or facility management – IoT improves situational awareness inside and outside your warehouse

Global Asset Tracking and Condition Monitoring (including Indoor Precise Positioning)

Understanding the estimated time of arrival of assets to warehouses, diagnosing unhealthy or disrupted supply chains, or providing improved customer service (full visibility of their supply chain) are just a few of the reasons why asset tracking is so important. Precise indoor positioning helps you improve personnel safety and know the location and security of all your assets

Digital Twin and Advanced Analytics

Information from all data sources inside the warehouse as well as the rest of the supply chain can help you utilize digital twins to optimize operations for improved performance. In addition, advanced analytics help you make real-time business operations decisions, bringing further productivity to your business
