    A growing workforce shortage

    As the working population declines, spurring calls for work style reforms to boost efficiency, the issue of labor shortages in the logistics sector is becoming serious. The tendency to assign certain tasks at logistics sites and warehouses exclusively to veteran staff also makes it difficult to find replacements. It has never been more important to maintain logistics quality and strengthen competitiveness by automating operations, reducing labor and leveling work. 

    Tracking RTI locations with IoT streamlines management

    Visualizing RTI location data automatically collected by RFID is a valuable tool for cutting distribution costs, reducing management burdens and supporting optimum asset management.

    The RFID identifying number links to the EPC code system, the global standard for supply chains, and can be used to manage RTI from the wider perspective of the supply chain.

    Thoughts behind the name SPINEX

    SPINE + X

    The spine is our body’s central support structure, our core, home to the spinal cord that radiates nerves throughout or bodies. In the same way as the nervous system allows us to experience the world, edge computing delivers fast decisions in data processing by distributing sensing and control to every point where it is needed.

    Our spine makes us strong and agile. We can do the same for your business, and contribute to society, by providing an essential industrial IoT framework that supports your people and operations with fast, appropriate on-site processing.

    The X of SPINEX represents eXperience and  eXpansion, and the crossover with other value creators and services. This is how we will create the future with TOSHIBA SPINEX Services.

    Two pillars of the Toshiba IoT Reference Architecture compliance standard

    APIThe service is an open interface, not closed on itself, an architecture that enables third parties to safely create value.
    SecurityThe service implements system security that meets global standards. We can provide customers with all the information they need to assess those standards, and determine whether or not the service meets their business’ security requirements.
