Siemens Healthineers gets real-time supply chain visibility

Discover how the healthcare technology business gains accurate ETAs with seamless tracking for critical medical equipment.


Avoiding delivery delays for urgent and valuable medical equipment

Medical devices are often urgently needed and delays during the delivery process of parts can result in reduced productivity and additional costs. This makes real-time visibility of spare parts along the entire supply chain critical. Siemens Healthineers was looking for a solution that can ensure accurate tracking of medical parts both in and outdoors, all the way to the correct floor.


Providing end-to-end visibility to inbound and outbound supply chain

Using HERE's Shipment Visibility solution, Siemens Healthineers can inform hospitals and technicians about any shipments that arrive early or late, reducing cost and installation time. By leveraging HERE tracking, powered by AWS, they can track and monitor the location, condition and ETA of their medical equipment – achieving real-time, end-to-end visibility.

The next generation of route planning

See how HERE helped Leogistics solve its yard management and route planning challenges.

Our expectation from a continued partnership with HERE is that we don't need to do anything about location data at all...We can just present it by doing look-ups directly on the HERE platform.
