What we offer

Based on our long history of working with pioneering transportation and logistics solution providers, we can help you roll out scalable, stable and secure connected solutions that meet your needs for coverage, quality and price.

Global IoT SIM connectivity with one point of contact

A ready-to-go, customisable IoT Cloud platform

Top rated service team on call 24-7

Global scale with one solution

Wherever your products, vehicles and connected solutions go, our Managed Connectivity solution provides you access to the best quality cellular connection, based on availability and the needs of your use case. Our Global IoT SIM cards can be pre-integrated to simplify your rollout, installation and lifecycle management.

We take care of all the agreements with local operators so you don’t have to. Using our extensive global roaming network, your connected solutions will connect to networks out of the box in nearly every market in the world. In countries where roaming is not available due to regulation, we can help you find viable solutions (including eUICC technology) together with our established localoperator partners.

IoT logistics and transportation made easy

We provide everything you need to successfully deploy and manage connected products and solutions that serve the global supply chain. Together with our partner network, we provide an end-to-end solution, from concept and design to monetization and operation over time. At the core of that end-to-end offering are our Managed Connectivity and Managed IoT Cloud.

Why mobile IoT?

IoT connectivity technology requirements in transportation

Rising global traffic and public transport fuels growth for the main segments in transportation – connected bus and aircraft. Despite a low number of endpoints, vehicle endpoint solutions account for the majority of market growth due to the complexity of individual solutions.

Connected transportation entails use cases such as driver interaction, fleet tracking and predictive maintenance aiming to reduce vehicle downtime while increasing overall productivity. Such applications have complex technology requirements – reliable coverage in urban and rural areas, global connectivity crosscountry and cross-continental, positioning capabilities for location tracking, a high quality of service to ensure that assets do not “go dark”, and future-proofness of the technology.

The latter means that the devices have SIMs and modules supporting over-the-air updates to avoid the need for costly swapping out in the field. The advancement of use cases that foresee real-time responsiveness and analytics will additionally strain bandwidth requirements. Hence, the majority of deployed transporting solutions will turn to 4G/5G given low price sensitivity and flexible energy efficiency requirements.

IoT trends in transport and logistics

From location tracking to assisted and autonomous driving, IoT is transforming the entire transportation industry.
