Coles digitalizes supply chain with IoT solution

Australian supermarket giant Coles has digitalized its supply chain with Internet of Things ( IoT ) technology .

It has deployed a solution from Loscam and Thinxtra to monitor the location of and measure shock for 4,500 smart food bins moving poultry between farms and its distribution center .
Coles last year announced a major Digital Transformation strategy , which includes increasing the resilience of its critical supply chains , such as the Protein Cold Chain , responsible for sourcing and stocking poultry . The goal was to reduce the number of food bins it loses , understand whether and where these assets are being damaged , improve pooling of equipment for transit and ultimately increase stock turnaround .
Following a competitive tender , Coles partnered with Loscam , which was the only company to propose an innovative IoT solution . Coles subsequently deployed
4,500 smart and foldable food bins manufactured by Loscam and fitted these with Internet-connected devices . The devices communicate location data in real-time using Thinxtra ’ s national , public 0G Network . This information is available to the supermarket via LoscamOnline , a specialized tracking platform .
The combined IoT solution has enabled a connected and transparent supply chain with timely insights into geolocation , geofencing , shock impact events , temperature and bin status and allows Coles to optimize transport routes and equipment pooling based on usage patterns . p
