IoT Evolution Expo 2020 is coming up fast, and we interviewed several of our speakers to get a bit of a preview of what to expect from their sessions.

Here, we spoke to two of our featured panelists, who will be sharing the stage Thursday Feb 13th in our Best Practices Theatre, to dig deep into a Spotlight on the Supply Chain.

Using IoT to provide transparency in the supply chain can benefit cargo owners and shippers around the world.
