Bosch Group’s Mobility Solutions sector, its largest, and cloud provider Amazon Web Services announced they have entered a strategic collaboration to work toward improving efficiency and sustainability in the transportation and logistics industry.
Their plan is to offer logistics and transportation companies across the globe quick and easy access to digital services through a platform powered by AWS.
Going forward, the companies said they will offer support for topics ranging from capacity utilization of commercial vehicle fleets to monitoring goods flows to order processing, all from a single source.
Bosch noted it will be responsible for developing and operating the logistics platform, the core of which is a marketplace for digital services, while AWS will contribute its comprehensive cloud services and expertise.
The platform will facilitate smooth interaction between a variety of services and data, enabling transportation and logistics companies to benefit more from the opportunities of digitalization without having to set up their own resource- and cost-intensive IT projects, according to Bosch.
“We aim to ring in the future of the industry and drive forward its digitalization,” Sandeep Nelamangala, executive sponsor of logistics platform business at Bosch, said in a release.
The marketplace will also be open to all digital logistics services providers. The launch for Europe, India and the U.S. is set for late 2022. — Transport Topics
