Surprising though it may seem, for many organizations - from chemicals companies to manufacturers - transportation is the second largest cost of doing business. For transportation companies trying to outperform their competitors, reducing overall costs through improved turn cycles, better asset utilization or preventative maintenance is a strategic imperative. The good news is that the emerging trend of sensor telemetry is poised to help transportation companies address these imperatives. Sensor Telemetry combines sensor data with two-way wireless communications to offer unprecedented visibility into and management of equipment, products and people. And, according to the research and development team at Accenture Technology Labs, there are opportunities for innovative companies in all industries, not just transport.
