Exponential security in logistics : Real gains in the production process
Luiz Neto , Security Specialist and Enterprise Security Manager , ICTS Security Brazil , explains how to apply exponential security to logistics . According to him , exponential security tools provide greater synchronization in the supply chain .
The ‘ exponential ’ concept in companies and services is not new . There is a reference that the subject emerged when cloud storage democratized companies ’ access to a data processing center , transforming fixed cost into variable cost . The importance of this accessibility is due to the most outstanding attribute related to the idea of exponential , which is the basis of information technology from the digital world on demand .
In addition to information enablement , other characteristics are necessary for exponential security : The use of algorithms to analyze large volumes of data ; Asset sharing with lease ; Employee engagement through transparency and instant feedback ; Process interfaces that start manually and gradually become automated ; Dashboards to measure and manage in real time ; Experimentation by realizing pilots and new processes with controlled risks ; And people ’ s autonomy relying on selforganized and multidisciplinary teams with decentralized authority .
The application of experimentation , for example , in logistic operations , helps to obtain better and faster results . Security relies on different devices , such as sensors , cameras , access control and processes that generate data , as long as they are digitized .
They can be worked with Machine Learning algorithms and have the ability to perform unprecedented tasks with precision , obtained from historical data , which can be shared with other areas , such as planning , hiring vehicles , human resources and compliance in order to optimize the decisionmaking process .
Putting these features into practice , it is possible for a vehicle tracking system , besides mitigating transport risks , to provide real-time information on the estimated arrival time at the destination to anticipate the receiving processes and obtain an improvement in unloading time .
Another application is for a monitoring center to receive an alert so that , at this specific moment , it uses its operational and analytical capacity to audit this process . This same analyzed information can help in deciding where the operational base will be installed , to reduce commuting time and avoid areas at risk of theft .
It is also possible to collect drivers ’ feedback assuring that the delivery has been made , transferring the information to the recipient , even if it is the final customer or an internal control area of the business ,

and , based on the deadline and previous information , suggest the next route to be taken , resulting in autonomy and systemic control of deliveries .
Attention to a point that cannot go unnoticed – the processes and technologies mentioned can be built using the integration of the already installed technology hub to reduce costs and increase the speed of implementation .
The increase and , consequently , the dependence on technology in an operation that cannot stop , is a warning signal to establish a well-defined contingency plan for the responsible areas , in a way that supports and guarantees the continuity of receipt , storage , dispatch and transport of goods . After all , anticipation and prevention of business risks continue to be mandatory behaviors in exponential security . p
