Embracing the Future of Asset Tracking: Navigating IoT Connectivity Challenges and Beyond

Imagine overseeing a global shipping company, with thousands of assets scattered across the world. You’re reliant on asset tracking to ensure your operations run smoothly, but dealing with inconsistent connectivity, roaming restrictions, and complex operations is a constant battle. This is where the future of asset tracking comes into play, leveraging the power of IoT.

The Asset Tracking Market size, currently valued at USD 21.09 billion, is expected to nearly double by 2028. As such, IoT-based asset tracking and management solutions have become critical to achieving operational efficiency in a fast-paced digital landscape.

However, implementing IoT isn’t always smooth sailing. It comes with a set of challenges, from inconsistent network coverage to high churn rates and inactive devices. Let’s explore these challenges and reveal how Velocity IoT can help you navigate them

Asset Tracking Challenges in a Hyper-Connected World

Various interconnected factors create complexities in asset tracking:

Inconsistent Connectivity: 

Inconsistent connectivity is a major challenge in asset tracking. For a construction company, tracking equipment and machinery at remote sites becomes difficult due to spotty network coverage. As a result, project delays, equipment location issues, and increased operational costs arise from inefficient resource allocation. This emphasizes the crucial requirement for a reliable asset tracking solution that can overcome connectivity challenges and ensure seamless operations in remote areas.

Roaming Restrictions: 

When assets cross borders, they risk losing connection due to roaming restrictions, causing significant tracking disruptions. This can lead to delayed deliveries, potential theft or loss of assets.

Operational Complexity:

To overcome roaming challenges and coverage gaps, enterprises often find themselves engaging with multiple operator contracts and multiple SKUs for different localities. Managing these multiple SKUs and partnerships with carriers and vendors can become a logistical nightmare, further compounded by the high operational overhead for vendor integration, making it an unfavorable situation.

Churn Rate and Inactive Devices: 

These can inflate costs and decrease efficiency, as inactive devices continue to drain resources even when not in use.


Keeping up with rapid technological advancements to ensure your asset tracking systems stay current is a constant race against time. Falling behind can lead to obsolete solutions and a loss of competitive edge.

Sounds daunting? Let’s see how Velocity IoT can turn these challenges into opportunities.
