The countdown is running: from 20 to 21 October 2020, IoT experts from all over the world will join the IoT Tracking Summit 2020. More than 500 decision makers will gather online to talk about the latest technology and business trends in the location tracking industry. Among other speakers, Bertrand Späth will give a very interesting insight into the supply chain market. In his presentation on Global visibility for long-term shipment tracking over long distances without GPS, he will highlight current challenges using two use cases as examples and outline how Kizy helped customers to see their supply chain in its entirety. Bertrand’s presentation will take place on 21 October, at 11 am.

In anticipation of the event, organizer Ludovic Privat, got in touch with the speakers to conduct an interview to find out about their opinions on the current situation of the tracking market and their visions for the future.
Kizy tracking's co-founder Bertrand Späth at the Iot Tracking Summit

In the interview, Bertrand Späth reflects on the founding of Kizy Tracking. The creation of the very first Kizy Tracker, the K1, took two years of hard work – night shifts included. Then as now, the company has focused on its core values: creating a device that ensures global tracking, has a small size, long autonomy and comes at an affordable prize. Späth: “Our vision is to connect carrier, shipper and logistics service providers in order to optimize supply chains in the best possible way.” This very idea is still decisive for Kizy’s success and was passed onto the next generation of trackers, the K-2.

Later in the interview, when asked about what key vertical markets Kizy is targeting, the answer is simple, yet comes with an interesting remark: “Everything that surrounds us has been delivered in one way or another, even the device you are reading this interview on.” Therefore, Kizy aims to target the supply market on a large scale. Today’s global economy comes with increasingly complex and widespread supply chains. Despite being invisible for the customers, they must be transparent for the companies in order to ensure a high quality of service. This is where Kizy comes into play: by tracking the shipments, assets and goods in real time.
