The Siemens Mobility and Logistics Division of the Infrastructure & Cities Sector is a solution provider for businesses focusing on the optimization of passenger and freight transportation. The Division is headquartered in Munich.
The Mobility and Logistics Division comprises three business units: Rail Automation, headquartered in Berlin, is the world market leader in signaling and control technology for rail-bound mass transit and mainline transportation. The Munich-based business unit Road and City Mobility supplies intelligent solutions for the improvement of mobility, safety, and environment protection in road traffic. Its product range includes energy-efficient LED signals, scalable traffic computers, complete traffic control centers, and even satellite-based toll systems for intercity traffic. Charging infrastructure and parking space management solutions complement this range. The core business of the new Division’s third business unit, Logistics and Airport Solutions, comprises systems and solutions for mail and parcel logistics and automation, airport logistics with baggage and air freight handling, IT, and services.
“When we observe the current stunning growth of cities and what sort of demands this triggers for their infrastructures in transport and logistics,” says Sami Atiya, CEO of Mobility and Logistics, “we see a big business potential there. How will cities cope with the challenges of road traffic? How will rail operators increase efficiency and safety of their transport systems? What is the right way to go in setting up infrastructure for e-vehicles? And how can we speed up logistics even more, without loosing accuracy? We want to contribute here, because we have the know-how to make road traffic smoother and faster, delivery of goods more reliable, and timetables of trains more dependable. We are passionate about developing the right solutions that enable us to work on finding the answers to all those questions together with our customers."
