Smart logistics powered by Roambee

The smart logistics solution enables maximum transparency



Smart logistics solution
for transport monitoring in real time

Any company that ships and receives goods faces major challenges on a daily basis: 30 percent of all deliveries worldwide do not reach their destination on time, €21 billion in losses are inflicted each year due to freight theft, and the value of spoiled products caused by interruptions in the refrigeration chain is €850 billion.

To reduce these costs and become even more reliable for their own customers, companies require a solution that gives them information about their goods and products at all times: where is the freight right now? What condition is it in? Can the schedule still be adhered to? These and other questions are answered by the smart logistics solution from T-Systems and Roambee – worldwide, and regardless of the shipping route. Whether by truck, ship or aircraft: companies can now monitor their goods in real time. They receive comprehensive information on the condition of the goods thanks to sensors for location tracking, temperature, humidity, light, manipulation, GPS disruption, shock, pressure and movement. Customers benefit from the end-to-end service and maximum data security based on the hosting in a high-security data center in Germany.

„Roambee’s fast-to-deploy-and-to-scale solution adds a strong value to our IoT partner ecosystem globally. Combined with T-Systems’ infrastructure and system integration expertise, we will now jointly enable and transform industries worldwide with IoT applications.“

Anette Bronder, Head of Digital Business and Security

Technical specifications

Always superbly informed about the logistics – thanks to Roambee and T-Systems

Thanks to its open API interfaces, the smart logistics solution from T-Systems, powered by Roambee, can be quickly and easily integrated in existing infrastructures. Consequently, no incurred costs for on-top services and customers only pay for those services that they actually make use of. The cloud-based solution is flexibly scalable for future growth and thus supports enterprises in their development process in a cost-efficient and future-oriented manner.

Ideally positioned with three components

Altogether, the central unit of the solution – the so-called "Bee" – consists of three components which are optimally interlinked: the hardware platform is equipped with a wide range of sensors, a long-lasting battery has an operable service life of 90 days to six years, and a GSM/GPS module (Global System for Mobile Communications/Global Positioning System) transmits data into the cloud. A control unit is interconnected to consolidate the information from the sensors and then wirelessly transmit it by means of a permanently installed M2M SIM card. All information goes into the high-security Open Telekom Cloud, hosted in ISO-certified German data centers.

Device with an open platform for maximum flexibility

The theft-proof "Bee" includes sensors for a wide range of different conditional states: for monitoring temperature, humidity, light, pressure, shock and movement, and also manipulation and GPS disruption; the sensors compile all important information. The open platform makes it possible to integrate further sensor data, such as the carbon dioxide content, if these are to be monitored in a specific case. All information is measured by the "Bee" in real time, thus also enabling forecasts of possible risks in transit, for example.

Mobile access to data or directly from your own ERP system

Thanks to the open API interfaces, the smart asset monitoring can also be integrated into existing infrastructures and proprietary enterprise resource planning (ERP) system connected, for example. This way the real-time information on freight – including the exact location – can be viewed directly in familiar installed programs. The Roambee user portal additionally provides all important information so you can also access it with a mobile app on a tablet or smartphone. This way, you can keep an eye on your shipments and deliveries 24 hours a day.
