DB Schenker digitalises global spare parts business

DB Schenker is to launch a new online platform to digitalise the spares logistics divisions of the industrial and aerospace sectors.

With “Logistics Orchestrator”, both global delivery and order management are now digitally controlled “from a single source”. Until now, spares logistics within large, global distribution networks have often been coordinated independently at regional or local level. Orders could also be managed in different organisations with varying systems and rules. 

DB Schenker’s “Logistics Orchestrator” will control the central management of all spares orders within a global distribution network. Delivery times to the end customer can be reduced, as the supply of all spare parts is ensured. Schenker claims this can cut logistics costs by up to 30% and aims to improve transparency.

“With our ‘Connect’ initiative, we are continuing to make rapid advancements in the digitalisation 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,” said, Markus Sontheimer, Chief Information and Chief Digitalisation Officer of Schenker AG.
