BT’s IoT platform will manage the weatherproof tracking devices attached to the stillages while capturing and analysing data relating to their location.
EE’s 4G network will send data from the tracking devices back to the IoT platform for analysis by Stobart.
Gerry McQuade, chief executive of Enterprise BT, said: “This is a great example of how IoT can deliver meaningful benefits to households and businesses in the UK.
"Entire communities in flood affected parts of the country will be better protected because of BT’s IoT technology being used to support Stobart’s delivery of its contract with the Environment Agency.
“Our technology can help logistics and supports companies such as Stobart to drive operational efficiencies and become more responsive to their customer’s needs through the improved tracking and visibility of their physical assets.”
