In order to both enhance and expand the globally running systems and logistics processes at the same time, Schenker chose to integrate logistical functions.

Marvin Lamberjohann, Head of Strategic Portfolio Management at DB Schenker, says: “Being a large logistics service provider, we have different systems in constant use. Expanding and optimizing them while they are running is a special challenge. An easy integration of additional logistical functions was the top priority.”

PTV Group’s Developer Components were deployed: These can be quickly and easily integrated in a wide variety of systems using standard interfaces, so-called APIs.

Virtually all relevant standard applications are now part of the new function package: Improved map displays, geocoding, sequence optimization, and even distance matrices calculation.

Since the integration in 2020, PTV continues to  support DB Schenker with know-how transfer for the numerous practical use cases.

"The development of reusable and easily integrable digital components is an integral part of our IT strategy. In cooperation with the PTV Group, we were able to add a key component to our catalog. We are looking forward to how things will develop further and the teamwork with PTV – now and in the future." says Jan Rick, Senior Vice President Global IT-Governance (L.LCG) Schenker AG.
