DB Schenker improve their Land transport network in Bulgaria

Artificial intelligence calculates volumes, goods flow, and the rationality of land connections

DB Schenker in Bulgaria recently have developed and put into action a new approach for their domestic land transport network. One of the key aspects are achieving even faster transit times for groupage shipments and a much better vehicle utilization.

This significant change in the country’s network setup successfully involves AI methods and the implementation of processes which have been carefully developed to meet customer’s expectations and to the benefit of the supply chains within the country and beyond. Moreover, the changes involve also new international connections as the company’s branch office in Sevlievo, north-central Bulgaria, becomes a transportation hub for the country and several European and Caucasus trade lanes.

„We are confident that by completing this project, using AI and new simulations, and taking into consideration the requirements of the market, we have significantly improved our network setup in Bulgaria, we have optimized our internal traffic and domestic lines to be much more efficient, in many different aspects, including reducing of our ecological footprint”, says Zoran Lazoroski, Managing director of DB Schenker in Bulgaria and North Macedonia.

Therefore, in the future, aside from the company’s main logistic terminal in Bozhurishte (Sofia) which remains an important freight distribution spot for Bulgaria and internationally, shipment volumes are also shifted to the branches in the central parts of the country- Plovdiv and now Sevlievo– with regular direct international connections.
