IoT-enabled Smart Pallets Tracked by Aeris


The majority of pallets used today are made of wood. One of the main contributors to municipal solid waste, the high energy within discarded wooden pallets is lost during MSW disposal. T to reduce the environmental impact, industries are implementing smart pallets made of recycled materials.

Legislation in the U.S., which includes the Food Safety Modernization Act, that is governing the delivery of food stuffs and health care products is seeing an increase in the popularity and demand for smart pallets made of plastic as they are more hygienic and easier to maintain and clean than traditional wooden pallets.

The growing emphasis on sustainable packaging and pallets is predicted to fuel the expansion of the smart pallets market, providing System Loco with global market opportunities. To provide next-generation connectivity to support and manage the worldwide track and trace of smart pallets employed by System Loco’s customers throughout the world, System Loco selected the Aeris Intelligent IoT Network.

System Loco designs and produces IoT-enabled hardware and software tracking technology that underpin supply chain solutions operated by smart pallet providers and account for tracking smart pallets in operation worldwide.

System Loco’s solution is optimized for power usage and will leverage Aeris’ power optimized intelligent e-SIM for global coverage.

“With 3G networks migrating to 4G in the U.S., we needed an IoT partner that could ensure business continuity and deliver global coverage that supports the battery life of our solution,” said Souroush Honary, CEO of System Loco. “In addition, the support and service we have received with Aeris has also ensured that we have been able to deliver robust solutions for our customers worldwide and will continue to support our growth.”

The Aeris Intelligent IoT Network will provide a dynamic and flexible connectivity solution that ensures demands from current and future networks are met. Aeris’ LTE-M network will transmit IoT sensor data to the cloud to make the pallet’s location and condition during transit visible.

The captured data will contextualize location, temperature, shock and event data, giving System Loco’s customers end-to-end supply chain visibility and insights in real time.

“With Aeris global connectivity, System Loco is well-positioned for long-term global expansion as the number of providers of smart pallets operating around the world continues to grow,” said Mohsen Mohseninia, vice president, market development, Europe, Aeris.

The availability of robust connectivity delivered by Aeris is vital for System Loco and their customers to ensure that items are reliably tracked and managed while in transit to comply with FDA’s FSMA.
