Customer stories

Logis Solutions

Optimizing operations for emergency vehicles

Logis Solutions automated their dispatch technology by using HERE's APIs to help them calculate the best routes using real-time and historical data, as well as speed limit information. In emergency services every second counts, so Logis Solutions used HERE's location data to identify adequate or insufficient coverage and then run AI to predict where the next call will be. 

We partnered with HERE because they provide the most accurate data you can get for vehicle routing in every country we operate in. With HERE APIs, we can get real-time traffic data without having to do anything ourselves. That was the basic decision point for us; it forms the basis of everything we do.

Providing organization services with spatial data

Descartes uses HERE geocoding data for ETA-planning. HERE Technologies lies at the core of Descartes ability to provide organization services for route optimization, delivery planning, last-mile, ETA capabilities and more.

We can build these route planning and optimization models very quickly and achieve results for customers using that geometry data. We also use things like real-time traffic conditions, predictive traffic, historical traffic patterns, posted speeds and some of the other premium location-based attributes HERE provides.
