PostNL has started fitting trackers so that the logistics chain can be managed real-time. It will be possible to track the movement of 250,000 roll containers used for collecting and transporting parcels. These trackers are known as beacons. These beacons generate millions of messages every minute. Therefore, Internet of Things (IoT) is an important component in the digitisation of the logistics process.
