To meet the high demands, we have launched a new line of selections for partial and full load shipments. This means that customers can plan the logistics in greater detail by defining for example, whether the goods need to deliver in the morning or the afternoon.
Things move faster and faster in the world of logistics. In Deloittes Transport Analysis from 2018 a study showed that in 2015 the customers considered 3-4 days transit a quick delivery. Just one year later this expectation had dropped to 2 days and this in an industry where the rising consumerism and internet trade produces more shipments while the capacity on the roads has been reached.
‘Our customers can of course feel this trend and keep pressing their transport- and logistics providers and that is something we can feel. Therefore, I also believe that the new selections and streamlined solutions will make it easier for our customers to fulfill their customers’ expectation across countries and markets’ says Kent Larsen, Sales- and Marketing Manager in DB Schenker Denmark.
The new options are for partial and full load shipments, i.e. goods over 2500 kg, and presents the option to choose which day to collect or deliver plus an option to select morning or afternoon collection and delivery.
‘90% or more of our deliveries are to construction sites, so it is a must to know when the orders will be delivered. Many of our customers would prefer delivery in the morning or the afternoon’, tells Logistics Manager Karsten Nielsen of the global business Trox.
Trox has been a customer for more than a year and chose DB Schenker because their sister company in Norway recommended DB Schenker and they were dissatisfied with their current provider. It is typically imports from Norway and Germany which are collected into the Hvidovre terminal and from there is distributed nationwide to Trox’ customers.
In 2018 we streamlined these two land product solutions to offer the same product portfolio in all European countries. Therefore, you will also get a money back guarantee product in our DB SCHENKERsystem premium solution.
