LONDON April 14, 2021 Infor, the industry cloud company, today announced that global logistics provider DB Schenker has extended its investment in Infor technology. As part of a 15-year technology partnership, DB Schenker has chosen Infor Nexus Purchase Order Management and Infor Nexus Control Center as part of a programme to help deliver an industry-leading, end-to-end predictive estimated time of arrival (ETA) capability for customers.

As the first major logistics service provider (LSP) to invest in Infor Nexus Control Center, DB Schenker has already reported better predictive ETA accuracy compared to using carrier GPS-tracking data alone. Trials amongst early-adopter customers have reported industry-leading levels of reliability when predicting the date of goods arrival at final destination, from the point of the original purchase order being raised.

“We have developed a very strong digital agenda within DB Schenker,” said Joachim Schaut, DB Schenker vice-president, intercontinental supply chains. “As a leading global logistics provider, we recognise that we can drive huge innovation into the industry, and we are committed to a position of digital leadership. We now have an unprecedented window into processes that make up the complete end-to-end journey for our global logistics customers and can offer reliable intelligence for the arrival of goods.”

“As one of the first global logistics leaders on the Infor Nexus platform, DB Schenker has a history of innovation and collaborative partnership with Infor,” said Mark Illidge, Infor vice-president and general manager for supply chain in EMEA. “The ability to develop truly industry-leading predictive ETAs is yet another example of this partnership in action. Visibility into entire supply chain networks and the addition of in-context intelligence means DB Schenker can now offer customers that most precious of commodities — confidence.”
