Internet of Things: The future of cargo tracking

Wednesday 1:10pm - 1:50pm, (Nelson 1 Room)

When global logistics tech company Descartes acquired Nelson-based CORE Transport Technologies in 2019, they acquired one of our region's quiet success stories: a hugely successful global player based out of Nelson.

They also got access to CORE's leading bluetooth-based cargo tracking tools and the strategic alliance of Core and Descartes has flourished ever since.

Join Descartes' recently-appointed GM/VP of IoT Air Cargo products Simon Gutschlag as he talks about the role of the Internet of Things in tracking global shipments, and what the future of this booming industry looks like.
