In supply chain management the transportation of perishable agricultural products effectively plays a vital role in the sustainability of the entire process. It is also to be noted that most of the post-harvest wastage occurs in the transportation phase. In this paper, the authors propose a system to optimize the transportation of the perishable products. A Low Power Wireless Sensor Network using IPv6 (6LoWPAN) is used to monitor the physical and environmental conditions like temperature, pressure, motion or pollutants thereby enabling these low power devices to be a part of the Internet of Things (IoT).
