Connected containers: smart logistics

Optimisation of the supply chain and delivery of Colissimo parcels with Kuzzle IoT

The Kuzzle IoT platform was chosen by the innovation department of the Mail and Parcel Services Branch of the La Poste Group as the data-agnostic IoT platform for its Colissimos container geolocation and tracking project.

The Smart Logistics IoT platform, Kuzzle IoT, geolocates and tracks containers in real time, while integrating this data into the IT system. In this way, La Poste provides real-time monitoring to its logistics teams.
Kuzzle IoT aggregates and visualises all data from each sensor (geolocation, temperature, humidity, shock detection…) while connecting these data to the existing information system in order to communicate these data in real time to the recipient sites.

Geolocation of containers in an IT system Compatible IoT

The Paris lab of the La Poste Group approached Kuzzle to carry out its first Smart Logistic project. The developed solution facilitates and improves the monitoring of container fleets. The containers are monitored in real time by a team, who intervene quickly in the event of an incident and thus improve local services in France. Following the conclusive results of this first collaboration, other projects are being studied.
