TagBox combines IoT and advanced analytics to make supply chains smarter, resilient and more reliable. Started in 2016, TagBox develops smart supply chain solutions. The company works with one of the largest e-commerce players in the country and some others.

These can operate in extreme temperatures like minute 40 degrees C and upwards of 80 degrees C, and have battery lives of up to two years. These tags allow companies to monitor individual shipments and products. They also have long-term evolution (LTE) connectivity that allows the tags to upload data to the cloud.
