    Innovation and Digitalization

    Looking beyond what exists and challenging the status quo to develop the best solutions and maximize benefits for all - that’s how we understand innovation.

    "Innovation is the process of taking ideas from inception to impact."

    We spark innovation: our open innovation network

    Collaboration is key – we strongly believe that many heads think better than one, especially when they come from different business sectors.

    We spark innovation at DB Schenker that moves our customers and industry forward – by actively engaging in innovative interdisciplinary networks.

    We also established an important strategic cooperation with the German research institute Fraunhofer IML in Dortmund, Germany, in 2015. 

    Data analytics and artificial intelligence

    Data is valuable to us. It allows us to provide you with better services. Managing internal and external data across the supply chains is key. Therefore, we team up with our internal and external partners to offer you advanced data-driven services.

    Based on state-of-the-art machine learning, data mining technologies, and prescriptive and predictive analytics, we identify optimization potential and cost-saving opportunities and develop innovative best-in-class services.
