Autonomous materials transport systems that improve safety, efficiency, productivity, and patient care while cutting operational costs

JBT’s goal is to help you provide world-class healthcare by making everything that’s going on “behind the curtain” work seamlessly, dependably, safely, and without mistakes. We accomplish this with our line of field-tested and proven Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs):

Your custom network of mobile robots can take over the routine material deliveries required in your healthcare facility. Your individual mobile robots are united into an advanced, high-performing Automated Transport System (ATS) when integrated with JBT’s proprietary software.

Meet the Hospital C.A.R.E. Team

In effect, your tailored ATS releases your highly trained staff to spend their time directly caring for patients. No more manually pushing heavy carts down long corridors or performing repetitive tasks that tie up valuable resources from patient care!

Other benefits achieved with the proper JBT automated systems implemented at your facility:

  • Improved productivity and efficiency
  • Greater delivery accuracy
  • Increased safety and cleanliness
  • Reduced costs
  • More predictable operations
  • Flexibility to adapt to shifting needs
  • Protect your hospital from unplanned operational disruptions (i.e.COVID-19 pandemic, staff shortages, etc.)

JBT mobile robots deliver safety and precision you must have and the logistical gains you’d like to have – all while controlling expenses in your patient care departments. The combined net effect is an increase in patient care and your ROI.

IT & Security

Cybersecurity threats are rampant, and the complications that come with these threats can be devastating to a business. JBT takes security seriously and has taken steps to ensure that our customers are always protected.

Below are the measures we have set in place.


SGV Manager audited to OWASP top 10
​​​​​​The OWASP Top 10 is a regularly updated list highlighting the 10 most critical security concerns for web application security. The list is published by a team of security experts from all over the world, and the data comes from several organizations and is then analyzed. Being audited to OWASP standards ensures good programming practices and improves security when writing source code.

SGV Manager penetration test performed by Rapid 7
An annual Rapid7 Penetration Test simulates a real-world attack on an SGV system, testing networks, applications, and devices to demonstrate the security level of key systems and infrastructure, and provides feedback to strengthen it.

SOC 2 Type 2 Audit 
SOC 2 certification requires an annual third-party audit by an accredited firm that assesses the effectiveness of security processes and procedures by observing operations. JBT completed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit in April 2022, demonstrating JBT’s commitment to security and best practices.

JBT is pursuing the ISO 27001 certification
ISO 27001 is the accepted global benchmark certification. An accredited, external auditing firm will fully audit JBT every three years to demonstrate the effectiveness of JBT’s information security management system (ISMS). The intermediate years will have partial audits to ensure continuous compliance with ISO standards.

JBT is pursuing the ISO 27001 certification to demonstrate that JBT has invested in the people, processes, and technology (e.g., tools and systems) to protect JBTs data and provides an independent, expert assessment that JBT’s data is sufficiently protected.
