Abstract: In Supply Chain Management the transportation of perishable agricultural products effectively plays a vital role in the sustainability of the entire process.It is also to be noted that most of the post- harvest wastage occurs in the transportationphase. In this paper we propose a system to optimize the transportation of the perishable products. ALow Power Wireless Sensor Network using IPv6 (6LoWPAN) is used to monitor the physicaland environmental conditions like temperature,pressure,motion or pollutants thereby enabling these low power devices to be a part of the Internet of Things (IoT). The past learning experiences of the freightare incorporated to make appropriate decisions in order to enhance the profits earned by the supplier and also to satisfy the demands of the consumer by supplying the perishable products at the correct scale of freshness.
