Siemens Logistics has developed Parcel Data Hub, a central platform that breaks up data silos caused by various sorting equipment and IT systems in parcel sorting facilities. The platform integrates and standardizes data sets of items, assets and processes. It provides comprehensive, semantic data models for any type of analytics application, in real time and end to end.
As a a single point of truth, Parcel Data Hub informs about the actual condition of each parcel as well as equipment in a sorting system.
A main feature of Parcel Data Hub is data normalization. It allows data from diverse sources to be combined, compared and processed and creates a reliable pool of standardized data. The platform ensures adherence to the highest data security standards and contributes to optimizing operational costs.
Parcel Data Hub is completely independent and can process data generated by Siemens’ sorting systems as well as those from other manufacturers. This includes Siemens Hub Booster, which helps operate sorting facilities as efficiently as possible, and Siemens Network Booster, which creates transparency across a sorting network and enables an improved overall performance.
