5G and Logistics Sector

In today’s world where mobile technologies are rapidly advancing, the world population and the number of devices used are increasing day by day. It seems that the mobile communication technologies in the current system will not be able to fully meet our future usage needs. The intense interest in technology brings with it new inventions and new searches. 5G technology, which will give a new impetus to data technology, comes to the fore at this point. Thanks to 5G technology, many factors such as the internet of things, the internet of vehicles and multi-carrier transmission techniques are expected to strengthen.

What is 5G?

5G, which is a new generation technology, is a term that enables wireless network connections to work more efficiently, while on the one hand, standard applications that are already in existence accelerate. The advantages of 5G technology include minimum waiting time and maximum speed. 5G, the 5th generation internet technology, represents the fifth infrastructure. 5G Technology offers high upload and download speeds and aims to provide an increase of minimum 10 and maximum 100 times of 4G technology. Thus, it is aimed to transfer large-capacity data faster. Among the advantages of 5G, faster communication between devices stands out. In this way, many experiences can be lived simultaneously.

5G technology will significantly benefit the development and use of VR technology, internet of things technology, autonomous vehicles, metaverse universe and artificial intelligence assisted assistants.

What are the Effects of 5G in Logistics and Transportation?

5G is a system with a faster download speed compared to 4G. In this context, it is a system that will not only speed up the phone, but also speed up many internet-enabled devices in the society.

5G technology will establish a more stable connection between IoT devices and their accompanying networks, making these devices one of the most important technological developments in the industry.

While providing more reliable data information with lower latency in wireless data networks, this system with higher bandwidth will make it easier to receive and transmit signals over longer distances. It will be of great benefit, especially in sectors where long-distance communication is required.

In this context, great gains will be made in transportation and transportation to the logistics sector, where 5G has the most significant impact.

What is the Impact of 5G on Logistics?

Thanks to the speed of 5G, a healthier communication system will be established between 5G-enabled vehicles and 5G-enabled roadside units, while the time required to send and receive messages will be reduced and possible delays will be prevented.

5G technology will be beneficial to the logistics industry in terms of data security by providing advanced security services.

The inventory management and product tracking system developed with 5G will reduce the encounter with out-of-stock products and pave the way for a better supply chain.

Thanks to fast and accurate navigation information, it will be beneficial for everyone, and it will bring useful work in the global sense with lower fuel consumption.

It is expected to provide more precise information about where the order is at any given time in 5G vehicles, improving supply chain visibility by providing detail on inventory, shipping routes and other aspects of company operations.

It is important to make plans for unexpected situations and future projects in the logistics sector. Knowing where the expected goods are on the way and when they will arrive facilitates planning and making plans for the future, while minimizing the risk of disruption and delay in delivery times.

Today, logistics companies have started to use augmented reality to showcase products in a certain context before making a purchase, and virtual reality is very useful for users who use real-time data from IoT devices where people from all over the world can participate.
