Working together

Infor and DB Schenker have formed a strategic partnership, which will see DB Schenker’s Logistics Service Provider (LSP) business leverage Infor Nexus technology to deliver a comprehensive supply chain solution to customers


This partnership builds on an established relationship between Infor and DB Schenker, which has already seen the logistics giant become the first third-party logistics (3PL) organization to deploy Infor Nexus Control Center, and offer a market-leading, predictive estimated-time-of-arrival (ETA) capability. The latest agreement provides DB Schenker’s customer base with access to the full range of Infor Nexus technology.

“Deploying the full range of Infor Nexus technology will deliver huge value to DB Schenker customers,” said Joerg Jung, Infor Executive Vice President and General Manager International. “This will help optimize lead times, reduce costs, and improve responses to sudden external influences. Our predictive analytics combined with IoT solutions can generate more precise container arrival times as well as real-time updates of shipments. Dashboards offer both supply chain overviews and in-depth data, and control centers monitor bottlenecks while calculating possible demurrage and detention costs. This connection of technology to specific, precise business issues will be a hallmark of our partnership and the results it will deliver.”
