Fujitsu has announced the launch of a new cloud-based logistics data standardisation and visualisation service for shippers, logistics companies, and vendors across the supply chain.
The service will offer new tools to customers to achieve sustainability in their operations and address a variety of challenges, including looming shortages of truck drivers, the urgent need to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation, and compliance with stricter industry regulations.
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-based service converts and standardises a wide range of logistics data for areas like inventory and transport.
By providing indicators for visualising and analysing logistics data, the new service aims to support business improvement and process reform to optimise operations amidst growing complexity and uncertainties for supply chain managers.
Fujitsu will launch the new service in the Japanese market from 14 December 2023 as an offering for Trusted Society under Fujitsu Uvance.
Tetsuya Aida, Senior Manager, SI Management, Strategic Partners, Amazon Web Services Japan, commented: “Cloud technology is rapidly transforming the logistics industry by enabling smart solutions that leverage data-driven insights to increase worker productivity and accelerate business growth.
“Amazon Web Services Japan GK is excited to see the launch of Fujitsu’s new service. Fujitsu has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the mobility and logistics sectors, and is partnering with AWS to drive digital transformation in diverse industries.
“We anticipate that this solution will contribute to solving problems not only in the logistics industry, but also in our daily lives, and also support customers in innovating their business.”
