DB Schenker Logistics has renewed its contract for supply chain visibility solutions with the cloud-based supply chain technology provider GT Nexus, the Oakland-based company said Tuesday.
DB Schenker has used GT Nexus since 2008 to provide cargo management capabilities for its customers, including end-to-end inventory and shipment visibility, purchase order management and origin management.
“We originally selected GT Nexus to offer our customers a strategic cloud-based technology solution as part of our integrated cargo management services that would provide them with added value and extensive flexibility,” said Tim Standen, global head of ocean supply chain solutions at DB Schenker Logistics. “We have successfully rolled the technology out to many of our customers across many different industry verticals who have seen significant ROI in terms of the ability to streamline processes and gain unparalleled visibility into their supply chains. We are pleased to re-affirm our partnership.”
GT Nexus Executive Vice President and General Manager John Urban praised DB Schenker for its “vision” in turning to cloud-based solutions ahead of the curve.
“Today, while every company on the planet is racing to figure out their cloud strategy, Schenker and its customers are ahead of the pack, running global supply chains efficiently with the help of a cloud based monitoring and control platform called SCOUT, powered by GT Nexus. I would say the vision paid off,” Urban said. - Eric Johnson
