Success stories in transport and logistic
Salvesen is a company dedicated to food logistics in a continuous process of technological transformation. Therefore, we needed to rely on a tool that not only measured technical indicators such as performance, CPU, memory, etc., but that was also based on User Experience and business indicators.
Thanks to Pandora FMS we have achieved it and managed to reduce the operational load of the IT area by 24%, a percentage that was previously dedicated to specific health checks. Consequently, we invested that time in offering better products and services.

CTO, Salvesen Logística
Empresa Municipal de Transportes de Madrid, or EMT (the Municipal Transport Company of Madrid), is a company wholly owned by the City Hall of Madrid that manages the different transport lines in the capital. It is one of the largest and most technologically advanced companies in the world.
We needed a monitoring tool that would give us a more reliable control over the status of hardware, processes and systems, and that could adapt to our increasing number of different systems.
A system like Pandora FMS allows us to monitor multiple parameters from a single console in real time. In addition, it allows to disregard certain systems when programming agents in watchdog mode for processes.

Transport and logistics monitoring consists of supervising the IT technology present in the activities of this sector. This includes both static element monitoring, such as networks, servers or devices located at fixed places – for example, distribution centers – and dynamic elements, such as delivery trucks.
What do you need to keep in mind?
Transport and logistics monitoring must be as flexible as the sector’s own activity. Thus, the monitoring software to be used must offer real-time data and be versatile, capable of adapting to different devices and technologies. These are some aspects that should be taken into account:
- The logistics and transport sector has its own needs, different from those of other sectors. Integration into third-party embedded systems or the ability to prevent vehicle-originated problems are just a few examples of the competences required from the monitoring software.
- In addition to technical competences, do not forget the practical aspects. The ability to monitor business transactions, control KPIs or have custom views and reports by departments will make both the understanding of the situation and the work of the people involved easier.
Interruptions or performance loss of the technologies involved could severely reduce the efficiency of these companies, and even cause service interruption in particularly serious cases. Monitoring becomes essential when it comes to preventing issues, or helping solve them as soon as possible, when these are unavoidable.
