Logistics provider teams up with Asian IoT pioneer
SINGAPORE – March 29th, 2018 – by Shuhui Fu – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has partnered with UnaBiz, an Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company, to lead the digitization of event logistics and provide enhanced tracking for exhibitors. The partnership between Agility and UnaBiz will help identify and address the various pain points in the niche events industry with innovative IoT tracking solutions designed to be simple and low cost.
While general logistics requires location tracking, event logistics requires more precise tracking and monitoring. Agility Fairs & Events will deploy a range of UnaBiz sensors and trackers with built-in environmental monitoring capabilities that provide readings on humidity and temperature– all essential for safe movement of fine art and important features for galleries, museums, collectors and artists.
Priscilla Leong, COO of Agility Fairs & Events, said: “The value of IoT in event logistics lies in real-time alerts and data. When we collect data on the movement of a customer’s assets around the world, we will be able to better plan and predict the manpower and storage requirements at their facilities. We will also get more accurate estimates of exhibits’ arrival time, which is valuable to organizers and exhibitors alike.” Leong added: “We work on indoor and outdoor events, in remote areas and in connected areas, and we manage assets of shows around the world, in large-scale exhibition arenas that can span hundreds of thousands square meters with thousands of exhibits.”
By using UnaBiz’s Sigfox Low Power Wide-Area network, Agility Fairs & Events can make a variety of tracking solutions available to customers. With minimal capital investment, low-power consumption, and global coverage, the solutions will be highly scalable industry-wide.
Jonathan Tan, Managing Director of UnaBiz Singapore, said: “UnaBiz is very excited to work with Agility to develop innovative solutions in global tracking and asset management based on low-power connected sensors and predictive analytics. By empowering Agility’s customers to track the status of their assets anytime, anywhere, we will set a new benchmark in sensing and data analytics that will revolutionize the entire industry.”
