How LoRaWAN-enabled multi-technology IoT location helps you save costs on reusable transport systems management
Tuesday May 31st 17:00-18:00 CET Paris (11AM New York)
Most businesses and industries use dedicated assets to transport their goods, like containers, cages, boxes, tanks, crates, bottles, load carriers, pallets, lattice boxes and roller containers, usually valuable and reusable. The inability to track and trace returnable assets can have a financial impact on a business:
Our Partners SmartMakers, Zozio and Nomosense are leveraging Abeeway tracking devices and LoRaWAN connectivity using Actility’s ThingPark, and their dedicated applications to provide their clients with efficient tracking solutions for all kind of returnable assets:
Abeeway & Actility deliver accurate tracking that works indoors and outdoors for industry applications like warehouse management, inter-facility goods tracking, supply chain management, and people safety and security. An asset journey combines multiple technologies to make the most precise real-time location: WiFi or BLE indoors, GPS or Low-Power GPS outdoors, or even ILoRa TDoA technique in large outdoor rural areas, where precise location is not required. Meanwhile, an unlicensed, low-cost, low-power private LoRaWAN network can easily transport the location data from any indoor and outdoor location.
Company: Abeeway is the market leader in low-power indoor & outdoor fused geolocation and a provider of disruptive IoT tracking solutions worldwide. Abeeway offers the most energy-efficient, reliable and flexible geolocation solutions using unique tracking devices and a smart Multi-technology location system optimized for long-range and low-power-consumption leveraging LoRaWAN™ connectivity. Abeeway devices are available on ThingPark Market . Abeeway is a member of the LoRa Alliance™.
Reusable transport systems must be provided in good time and in good condition. For cost reasons, their number in the cycle must be kept low, but they must also not be too low to avoid disruptions in the supply chain. An efficient organization must therefore ensure transparency of stocks, detection of the causes of misuse and shrinkage, maintenance and timely provision.

Company: SmartMakers is a leading German provider of IoT asset tracking and remote monitoring solutions. The proven thingsHub Platform provides all IoT building blocks to build and scale IoT applications more cost-effectively and secure than alternative approaches. Companies such as Mercedes Benz, MAN Trucks, Survitec or Beresa rely on SmartMakers to connect their assets through IoT and achieve more transparency on all of their business processes.
In a context where the cosmetics market is booming across the world, with an increasing need for more efficient management of resources, Zozio is implementing a unique tracking and tracing solution, aiming at optimizing the flow of assets and reducing costs. With Abeeway & Actility, Zozio made a successful deployment with one of the biggest French luxury brands. The brand, which name will be revealed at later stages of the project, is using the integrated Zozio-Abeeway solution to track high-end perfume tanks on production sites. Employees now have immediate access to data on the status, location and history of tank movements from the ergonomic platform.
Company: Zozio, created in 2018, has made its name in the industry with the unique artificial intelligence-powered platform for predictive logistics and has the ambition to become the logistics platform of reference in the industry of tomorrow. Today, Zozio is already working with major accounts such as L’Oréal, Saint-Gobain, Faurecia, etc., enabling them to optimize factory flows by freeing the operator from long and repetitive tasks. Thus, the manager is assisted in his decision making, the factory is more efficient and finally the company gains productivity.
Truck construction is a complex process which requires to transport pieces from different warehouse of our customer and its own supplier warehouse. NomoSense solution helps our customer to optimize logistics between each warehouse, to simplify inventory management or to stop equipment loss. Once the sensors are installed on the content box, our platform allows our customer to visualize the position and time presence of each box at national level precision. It can also calculate satistics to know the time process of a logistic rotation and can detect any shock to prevent responsibilities of each actor of the global industrial process.
For a few weeks now, we have integrated Actility’s ThingPark Exchange solution into our platform to propose LoRa roaming. This allows us to improve asset tracking solutions with better indoor precision thanks to public-private LoRa roaming or to connect the services abroad thanks to public-public LoRa roaming.
Company: NomoSense is a company established on the Internet of Things (IoT) market. It provides building communities and managers with centralized sensor solutions to the management platform. Its solutions optimize human and material resources. NomoSense commits itself daily to ensure continuity of the delivered service, to optimizing the performance of our solutions and to evolving its services according to the new technologies.
