DB Schenker Logistics is one of the world’s largest providers of freight forwarding and logistics services. They are part of the DB Schenker global network with over 2,000 locations on all major continents in 130 countries. Their supply chain services integrate and manage the entire global value chain between suppliers, manufacturers, brand owners and customers. 


DB Schenker wanted to offer WMS solutions with a faster time-to-market. Their ambitious plan included rapid rollouts in a complex global landscape of several hundred warehouses spanning multiple regions.
To meet their business objectives, they needed a low-cost system that included standard WMS solutions for small and simple processes to enable quick on-boarding. The system also needed the flexibility to support multiple verticals, value-added services and scalability. They also required support for multiple languages across countries.
