DB Schenker Award presented to Dr. Cora Bogusch

Junior scientist from Technische Universität Darmstadt receives prestigious award for innovative research • Focus on revenue sharing as incentive mechanism in logistics relations.

In the logistics business, information chains – for instance about transport capacities and utilization rates – are critical factors for success. In many cases, however, logistics services are booked ad hoc, without much advance notice. This, in turn, raises questions about better capacity utilization and a higher quality of service. Logistics services providers can take steps to counteract these uncertainties by ensuring an effective exchange of information prior to the transport and by improving their customer relations management on the basis of revenue sharing agreements.

Dr. Cora Bogusch received this year’s DB Schenker Award for her thesis on “Revenue sharing as incentive mechanism in logistics relations with information asymmetries”. The presentation ceremony took place in Munich last night: Dr. Bastian Grunberg, Managing Director of the Deutsche Bahn Foundation, and Jochen Thewes, CEO Schenker AG, handed over the award, which comes with prize money of 15,000 euros, at the transport logistic, the leading international exhibition on logistics, mobility, IT and supply chain management.

The DB Schenker Award

The DB Schenker Award is a monetary prize awarded by the Deutsche Bahn Foundation to promote talented young professionals. The award is offered internationally every year and is regarded by logistics professionals as one of the highest European accolades in the logistics business. It is intended to promote academic theses by junior scientists in the fields of transport, logistics and traffic management, which demonstrate not only professional excellence, but also a high degree of innovation and which make a contribution to the environment and the community.
