Roambee, a supply chain visibility provider, has introduced a 5G-enabled smart label, in what it said is a “groundbreaking development” for the logistics industry.

The new peel-and-ship smart label adheres to the outside of a package, collecting data from a range of sensors integrated with 5G and GPS to provide businesses with insights into a shipment, including temperature, humidity and light.

Companies can simply scan the label to access these insights, which Roambee said is a “revolutionary barcode-like user experience.”

Data collected by the sensors is stored in Roambee’s unified visibility platform, designed to address the growing demand for real-time visibility into time-sensitive and high-value shipments.

"Roambee's smart label and platform revolutionize product delivery to third-party destinations," said Sanjay Sharma, Roambee’s CEO. "They boost retail forecasting with precise product flow insights and issue critical alerts for time-critical component deliveries, ensuring necessary site services are promptly activated upon arrival.

“The technology also streamlines cross-border logistics, offering automated physical and electronic proof of delivery." 

Atsushi Tsuchiya, senior digital expert at Yamato, a major Japanese delivery service and one of Roambee’s customers, said introducing Roambee’s smart label has been a “game-changer.”

“The innovation eliminates the typical deployment challenges associated with visibility solutions, revolutionizing parcel logistics."
