DB Schenker digitalizes global spare parts business

DB Schenker continues to focus on its digitalization campaign. With the launch of another new online platform, the spares logistics divisions of customers from the industrial and aerospace sectors are now also being digitalized.

DB Schenker's "Logistics Orchestrator" now controls the central management of all spares orders within a global distribution network. Delivery times to the end customer can thus be significantly reduced, since the supply of all spare parts is ensured. Average logistics costs can thus be reduced by up to 30 percent.

"With our 'Connect' initiative, we are continuing to make rapid advancements in the digitalization of our freight products. With "Logistics Orchestrator" we are now launching a special digital solution focusing on our customers in the industrial and aerospace sectors," says Markus Sontheimer, Chief Information and Chief Digitalization Officer of Schenker AG.

Until now, spares logistics within large, global distribution networks have been coordinated independently at regional or local level. Orders were also largely managed locally in different organizations with varying ERP systems and business rules. This decentralized control led in part to a lack of transparency in the supply chains and consequently to high storage and transport costs. With "Logistics Orchestrator", everything is now digitally controlled "from a single source", both global delivery and order management.
