LONDON: November 15, 2018. A report from Inmarsat, the UK provider of mobile satellite communications, says supply chain stakeholders can reduce their environmental impact by adopting Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology.

IIoTThe research says 46 percent of respondents are using IoT solutions to improve resource efficiency and monitor water, soil and air quality while 67 percent say they are achieving environmental sustainability improvements.

Inmarsat notes supply chain organisations have had success in implementing smart electrical grids, smart street lighting, environmental monitoring and fuel efficiency monitoring and telemetry.

However the company adds that satellite communications are key to achieving the benefits of IIoT as many stakeholders operate in remote regions or at sea, where terrestrial networks are not available.

Commenting on the findings, Inmarsat Enterprise president Paul Gudonis said: “The global supply supply chain is faced with a multitude of challenges, tasked with reducing its impact on the environment and adhering to stricter government regulations, while accommodating the needs of a growing population. Our research shows that organisations are adopting IIoT to help them achieve these goals, and that many are succeeding in this aim.”

Inmarsat operates mobile satellite connectivity for Industrial IoT deployment across the global supply chain, enabling end-to-end transparency across the production, extraction, manufacture and multi-modal transportation of goods.
