Company Description

DB Schenker is the world’s leading global logistics provider — we support industry and trade in the global exchange of goods through land transport, worldwide air and ocean freight, contract logistics and supply chain management. DB Schenker is a division of German rail operator Deutsche Bahn AG that focuses on logistics and was founded 150 years ago. Integrated logistics resides at the world’s most important intersections, where the flow of goods creates an effective link between carriers. Our value-added services ensure the flow of goods continues seamlessly and supply chains stay lean and optimized for success.

Project Description

We would like to investigate if there is a market available for shipments for which we offer a slower product and no lead time commitment in combination with a lower price.

E.g. The customer will book a shipment and we decide when we do a pick-up, we decide when we load it into an international truck and we decide when it will be loaded on a final mile delivery truck. How much ‘green solution’ volume do we need to be able to get maximum effect on loading degree of trucks and not to much cargo on our cross dock terminals.

Goals of the Project

Optimize all our long distance vehicles in regards to loading degree
