Logistics

Track and analyze data points across your fleet, the environment and inventory management system to make real-time decisions

Real-Time Analytics for Logistics

Monitoring and tracking is critical to ensuring your fleet is operational, routes are optimized and resources are delivered on-time and within budget. The surge in online ordering and the expectation of short delivery timeframes has made real-time optimizations a must in the industry. With Rockset, you can analyze thousands of data points across multiple sources to respond to changing conditions and identify problems early on.

Why Rockset

Why Real-Time Analytics in Logistics Is Hard

How Rockset Makes It Easy

Other
Need to analyze real-time data at scale: Route optimization and changes to the supply chain are made from real-time data streaming from thousands of devices and machines. The analytics infrastructure should handle high ingest rates and make that data queryable in seconds.
Check
Act on streaming data in real-time: Rockset ingests data continuously and makes it immediately queryable without any data prep. Rockset’s disaggregated architecture separates ingest compute from query compute so you can scale to handle peak periods.
Other
Can’t gather information across various sources: Decisions cannot be made in a vacuum. Logistics systems rely on data from multiple sources including GPS, weather, fleet management and inventory management systems.
Check
Join data across multiple sources: Join data from different sources and formats using SQL. Optimize your supply chain, distribution and fleet management based on constantly changing data from multiple sources.
Other
Need to know your queries upfront: You need to drill-down and analyze the root cause of issues in your supply chain. Many systems require the access patterns of the application to be defined upfront, making it challenging to run ad-hoc analysis of the data.
Check
Analyze data on the fly: Rockset doesn't require data to be modeled a certain way for queries to perform well. Rockset indexes your data in real-time to support low latency search and analytics without any additional data modeling.
