The goal of CORE Transport Technologies is to disrupt old technology and put the power of big data analytics into the hands of the customer and at the same time the customer's customer. They have made Solace PubSub+ event broker technology a strategic element of several of their solutions, combining the domain expertise and business logic of their applications with the uniquely fast, robust, scalable event distribution that PubSub+ offers.
“Weather, mechanical delays, security concerns and other circumstances all affect the ability to meet service targets for moving mail from origin to destination. The ability to dynamically manage and deliver this crucial information in real time is critical to maintaining contingency plans for all potential circumstances and make adjustments as events unfold.” - Ian Craig, Managing Director, CORE

Streamlining Logistics for USPS and DoD

For over a decade, the United States Postal Service and Department of Defense (DoD) have used a SaaS offering based on Solace’s appliances called CORE Logistics Coordinator to synchronize and exchange critical logistics information with their global logistics suppliers in real time. Overlaying CORE’s software onto Solace PubSub+ appliances enables real-time routing between a variety of third- and fourth-party logistics firms such as terminal handlers, ground handlers, air and ground carriers and container providers. Solace PubSub+ helps their system easily coordinating the flow of data through multiple environments and handoffs. The platform sends users real-time alerts about factors affecting their deliveries such as severe weather, security issues and logistical problems so they can make more effective package routing decisions. This ability to send customized alerts to specific users ensures optimal deployment of resources, and ensures that logistics partners are meeting their service level agreements.
There is no denying the power of IoT in optimizing air carriers’ shipping processes and operations, and Solace provides the secure and scalable messaging backbone needed for what could become one of the largest IoT implementations in the world.” -Ian Craig, Managing Director, CORE

Increasing Efficiency of Air Transport with IoT

In 2018 Solace and CORE expanded their partnership to offer a solution that enables real-time tracking of unit load devices (ULDs) in the air transport industry. Solace and CORE’s innovative offering helps air carriers implement and manage Internet of Things (IoT) devices to improve the monitoring, tracking and routing of shipments. CORE’s software leverages the event distribution capabilities of Solace PubSub+, both software running in the Microsoft Azure cloud, and as the PubSub+ managed service. The event-driven routing of information across diverse cloud environments lets logistics companies easily synchronize and exchange critical information in real-time, updating users on the status of their deliveries as well as potential logistical problems. The solution drives smarter analytics, deeper visualizations and more effective command-and-control functions that improve transparency of air cargo shipments.
