Globalization and the push for greater efficiency is increasing security risks along the supply chain, and clients are taking notice. According to a report issued by risk management firm Deloitte, seventy-one percent of executives surveyed said that supply chain risk is an increasingly important factor in their strategic decision making. In other words, if a warehouse can’t secure the goods it has been entrusted with, global brands at the end of the supply chain may simply look elsewhere to meet their storage and distribution needs.
Protecting warehouses from theft and vandalism is more important now than ever before. Even still, most facilities have serious holes in their security that are not adequately met with traditional protection measures like CCTV cameras and security guards. Increasingly, warehouse and distribution professionals are turning to the next generation of wireless alarms to shore up these holes. Powered by Sigfox’s global IoT network, next-gen wireless alarms protect warehouses and distribution centers around the world and increase security along the global supply chain.
