DB Schenker – Redefining the supply chain industry through innovation

Innovation in the supply chain industry
The logistics industry is making a huge leap forward in terms of innovation. At DB Schenker we are embracing new technologies as a requirement to drive efficiency improvements in the services provided. An important change is the ability to give our customers real time visibility of their supply chains. When you have real time information you can react faster to anything that disrupts your supply chain.

Technology also mitigates rising supply chain costs. The supply chain today is global, complex, and involves numerous partners. Technology, such as real time tracking tools and predictive analytics, can act as a thread through the partnerships that comprise the entire supply chain, gathering data that is used to provide critical information to mitigate supply chain costs.

In Germany DB Schenker is on top of the latest technology developments. In July the company announced a partnership with truck manufacturer, MAN and a German based university for their joint development of networked truck convoys. With this project, DB Schenker is expanding its further expertise as a modern mobility and logistics provider. Alexander Dobrindt, Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure commented, “automated and networked driving will soon be a reality. The platooning project will bring the technology from the lab to the roads. High-tech trucks maintain safe distances and communicate with one another. Traffic runs more smoothly and safely, and road capacity and cabin comfort go up. This relieves stress on drivers and the environment.”

Jochen Thewes, CEO of Schenker AG said, “with early and thorough testing in real road traffic scenarios, we are, yet again, fortifying our role as a leader in digitalization. This project demonstrates our high standards and ambition to be the driver of digital business models for our customers in the transport and logistics sector.”

Platooning is a vehicle system for road traffic in which at least two trucks on the freeway are networked by a technical system, allowing them to drive one after the other at a very close distance. All trucks in the platoon are connected via electronic car-to-car communication. The electronic coupling of the vehicles ensures safe travel in traffic. Here, the primary goal is to use the generated slipstream driving to achieve fuel cost savings of up to ten percent. These savings also cut CO2 emissions. The project partners are also expecting to learn new ways to optimize the entire logistics chain and achieve social acceptance of new technologies.
