HERE Technologies, a Dutch location data and technology platform, has entered a five-year strategic collaboration agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help organisations improve their supply chain visibility, transportation and logistics (T&L), fleet routing, and estimated times of arrival (ETAs) from the first-to-last mile of delivery. As part of the collaboration, HERE will list its Supply Chain Solutions, that are utilised by companies globally, in AWS Marketplace.

Additionally, HERE will work with AWS to bring to market advanced capabilities for participants to leverage, such as warehouse and yard management, predictive ETA calculations and, CO2 fleet emission solutions.

HERE Supply Chain Solutions connects and integrates data from multiple stakeholders in the transportation ecosystem to optimize planning, prediction of events during execution, deliver a predictive shipment ETA and location-based analytics.

AWS is supporting HERE’s innovative location-based service applications on AWS to increase visibility across supply chains while tackling some of the largest challenges in T&L globally.

HERE will also provide services to measure fleet CO2 emissions n compliance with global standards and to conduct what-if scenario planning for fleet transitions to alternative fuels and drive trains.

Edzard Overbeek, CEO at HERE Technologies, says “We are proud to work with AWS on deploying these cost and time saving solutions for companies to minimize dwell times, predict ETAs more accurately across every stage, and begin the crucial step of measuring fleet CO2 emissions as the transition to EV vehicles accelerates and economies decarbonize.”

“T&L companies around the world rely on real-time visibility for customer satisfaction and operational efficiency. When shipments do not arrive on time, or don’t arrive at all, someone’s bottom line is impacted,” adds Bill Vass, Vice President, AWS Engineering. “The AWS Services for data management and aggregation power HERE Supply Chain Solutions using AWS Services required for the most relevant customer data to be conflated with the latest location intelligence to solve the visibility and predictability problem throughout a supply chain.”
