IOT – CLCTO – Co-operative Logistics Cargo Transport Optimization


The operation of transportation determines the efficiency of moving products. The progress in techniques and management principles improves the moving load, delivery speed, service quality, operation costs, the usage of facilities and energy saving. Transportation takes a crucial part in the manipulation of logistic. Reviewing the current condition, a strong system needs a clear frame of logistics and a proper transport implements and techniques to link the producing procedures.The objective of the paper is to define the role of transportation in logistics for the reference of further improvement. This paper specifies a cloud-based on Co-operative Logistics Cargo Transport Optimization (CLCTO), where embedded system is designed to overcome the hassles of theft, vehicle breakdown, parking accident and tracking vehicle by using renesas (R5F100LE) microcontroller and other embedded sensor modules. The AMAZON (Base Station) is used to store all the information about the logistics for further use.



Since logistics advanced from 1950s, there were numerous researches focused on this area in different applications. Due to the trend of nationalization and globalization in recent decades, the importance of logistics management has been growing in various areas. For industries, logistics helps to optimize the existing production and distribution processes based on the same resources through management techniques for promoting the efficiency and competitiveness of enterprises. The key element in a logistics chain is transportation system, which joints the separated activities. Transportation occupies one-third of the amount in the logistics costs and transportation systems influence the performance of logistics system hugely. Transporting is required in the whole production procedures, from manufacturing to delivery to the final consumers and returns. Only a good coordination between each component would bring the benefits to a maximum.


The purpose of this paper is to re-clarify and redefine the position relationship between transportation and logistics systems through collecting and analyzing various application Proceedings of the Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Study. It is to provide a general framework and expect to be referred for further development and researches. The paper started from introducing the development of logistics and transport-related sectors based on a historical review. Afterwards it discussed the interrelationships of transportation and logistics. It expresses the benefits that transportation brings to logistics activities and vice versa. For instance the increase of the efficiency of logistics also would bestead to release traffic load in the urban areas. Furthermore, some major logistics activities and concepts were also discussed in this paper. It especially presents City Logistics independently due to it is considered as a main tendency and an available method of future integration of transport and logistics in the urban areas. Finally, this paper will discuss and conclude the potential further development of logistics systems by embedding features to make a hassle free transportation.


Literature Review:

Logistics was initially a military activity concerned with getting soldiers and munitions to the battlefront in time for flight, but it is now seen as an integral part of the modern production process. The main background of its development is that the recession of America in the 1950s caused the industrial to place importance on goods circulations. The term, logistics, was initially developed in the context of military activities in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and it launched from the military logistics of World War II. The probable origin of the term is the Greek logistikos, meaning ‘skilled in calculating’. (BTRE, 2001) Military definitions typically incorporate the supply, movement and quartering of troops in a set. And now, a number of researches were taken and made logistics applications from military Proceedings of the Eastern Asia Society for Transportation Studies, activities to business activities.

Business logistics was not an academic subject until the 1960s. A key element of logistics, the trade-off between transport and inventory costs, was formally recognized in economics at least as early as the mid-1880s. (BTRE, 2001) Based on the American experience, the development of logistics could be divided into four periods (Chang, 1998), which are represented as Figure 2. Figure 2. Logistics historical development Before the 1950s, logistics was under the dormant condition. Production was the main part of the managers concerned, and industry logistics was once regarded as “necessary evil” in this period. During the 1950s to and 1960s, applying new ideas of administration on business was a tendency. Drucker (2001), who thought Logistics was The Economy’s Dark Continent, regarded the procedure of physical distribution after producing products as the most possible development area in American businesses but also the most neglected area. Lewis’s study (cited in Chang, 1998) in 1956 on the role of air transportation in physical distribution was the application of “total cost concept” and it pointed out the notions of trade-off between inventory and transportation. From the 1970s onwards, more and more applications and researches of logistics appeared. Due to petroleum price rise in 1973, the effects of logistics activities on enterprises grew. Slow growth of market, pressure of high stagflation, release of transportation control, and competitions of the third world on products and materials all increased the significance of logistics system on planning and business at that time.


Problem definition:

Efficient use of transport modes and resources requires understanding the options and alternatives and being able to make the right logistics choices which is integrated with embedded. The current problems facing by logistics as follows,

Theft: Theft can caused by any authorized person like driver of vehicle or any robbers which are delimits to the organization
Parking Lot Accident: Accident can be occurred when vehicle is in parking lot on a public street and the company is liable for the damages caused.
Vehicle Breakdown and Tracking: Fails to produce proper information which is required to the company.

To overcome these problems an embedded system is integrated with the system to get efficient outcome from the organization which is discussed in this project.
