HERE Tracking improves shipping visibility

Jan. 22, 2018
See how HERE Technologies is helping to maximize logistics efficiencies with the launch of HERE Tracking.

In a typical year, shipping companies lose more than 1,000 containers at sea, and enterprises lose billions of dollars when road freight is stolen, misplaced or routed inefficiently.

Better visibility into the progress of shipped goods in both inbound component logistics and outbound product logistics can provide significant efficiency improvements. That visibility helps enterprises and logistics managers reduce misplacements and delays as well as minimize production capacity losses and shipping costs. At the same time, they can re-plan capacity in near real-time.

HERE Technologies is helping industry maximize logistics efficiencies with the launch of HERE Tracking, a powerful cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) for low-energy, high accuracy and real-time tracking of goods, devices and people both indoors and outdoors. HERE Tracking helps users maintain an accurate and trusted real-time and historical record of items through space and time.

The service, built on the HERE Open Location Platform, combines several capabilities and technologies to provide system integrators, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) providers, E2E Tracking system providers and developers an easy-to-integrate solution to solve problems with minimum customization. These include:

•Industry-grade maps for indoor venues and outdoor environments with geo-coding capabilities

•Highly accurate, energy-efficient indoor-outdoor positioning technology with offline capabilities that enable conventional tracking devices to work longer due to superior battery management

•Tracking and geo-fencing APIs

•Analytics API and visualization tools

In addition to goods tracking and multi-modal logistics, HERE Tracking can aid smart office and smart factory (Industry 4.0) applications, equipment tracking for construction companies, on-demand services such as food delivery, and the management and coordination of first responders.
