@cpower, thanks for the extra info. I think that if support comes from the corner office, and everyone else really understands the potential benefits (like how will this make my world/life/job better and help me do better for our customers) it can be done.

@Hailey - In my experience I've seen several challenges, the most immediate of which are typcially cost and the distruptive nature of the implementation of technology in transporation and supply chain companies.  If there is enough organizational momentum to look past those hurdles, then when it comes to IoT specifically I see actionable intelligence as the next challenge.  The industry needs to be able to see and understand that all of this data leads to actionable intelligence and that intelligence leads to the ability to improve the efficiency of supply chain and logistics operations.  If these challenges can be met I think you will see IoT tech become more mainstream.

@Chris, what do you see as the biggest challenges to the logistics industry leverage IoT tech? When do you think this will be more mainstream?
