German-based Deutsche Bahn AG logistics subsidiary DB Schenker, recently announced the launch of yet another online platform as they continue to focus on their digitalization strategy.

The most recent digitalization project is for the spares logistics divisions of customers from the industrial and aerospace sectors.

All spares orders within a global distribution network are now centrally managed by DB Schenker’s “Logistics Orchestrator”. With this new platform in place Delivery times to the end customer benefit from being significantly reduced as the availability of spare parts is guaranteed. On average overall logistics costs are expected to be reduced by up to 30%.

Schenker AG Chief Information and Chief Digitalization Officer, Markus Sontheimer said, “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.”

Before the launch of this new platform, spares logistics within large, global distribution networks have been coordinated independently at regional and local levels. Different organizations with varying ERP systems and business rules would locally manage orders.

Everything pertaining to global delivery and order management is now digitally controlled “from a single source” due to the implementation of “Logistics Orchestrator”.
