The leading international provider of integrated logistics services continues its successful collaboration with the provider of “on demand” transport management software and services (TMSS)
Brussels, May 27, 2013 – Following a long-standing collaboration that started in 2010, DB Schenker Logistics, a leading international provider of integrated logistics services, has signed another three-year agreement with Wolters Kluwer Transport Services (WKTS), provider of “on demand” transport management software and services (TMSS) including the freight exchange brands Teleroute, BursaTransport and Nolis.
DB Schenker Logistics signed its first agreement in 2010 with Teleroute, part of WKTS now, to bring up to 1.2 million offers on the freight exchange. On a daily basis, the +70.000 Teleroute customers can find 200,000 real-time freight & vehicle offers on the freight exchange platform. The Teleroute freight exchange has been directly linked to the DB Schenker Logistics Transport Management System in European Land Transport, Schenker CARGONET, allowing planners to speed up the allocation of their freight throughout Europe whilst limiting potential human error in data transfers. As this collaboration has been successful in the past three years, DB Schenker Logistics decided to continue to rely on the WKTS technologies and experience in order to be able to focus more on its core activity and increase the efficiency of its freight handling.
Both companies engaged in a new contract, having effect until February 2016, which will cover freight exchange services for the 268 European sites of DB Schenker Logistics including its integrated subsidiary TRANSA Spedition GmbH in Germany. The new agreement is extending its scope to 1.4 million freight offers. Furthermore, and thanks to the synergies of the WKTS group and its different freight exchange brands, all DB Schenker freight offers posted on Teleroute will be automatically transferred on the BursaTransport and Nolis freight exchanges, giving visibility of these freight offers to extra 15,000 customers in France, Central and Eastern Europe.
The decision of DB Schenker to extend their partnership with Wolters Kluwer Transport Services is a confirmation that our commitment to offer customers top quality service with a clear eye for safety and security, our close to 30 years of experience and our knowledge of 27 local European markets, is a solid basis to meet their needs. Thanks to our innovative solutions, clients can increase profitability whilst at the same time minimising costs and ensuring business efficiency, said Fabrice Maquignon, Managing Director of Wolters Kluwer Transport Services.
Our longstanding cooperation with Teleroute has taught us that Wolters Kluwer Transport Services offers technologically-advanced and high-level transport software and solutions throughout Europe for a reasonable price, and this partnership has enabled us to focus on our core business and strategic objectives, added Karl Nutzinger, Member of the Board of Management, Schenker AG, responsible for Land Transport.
Following its mission to “Connect Transport Communities”, Wolters Kluwer Transport Services offers a full range of services to help all transport companies to optimize their business.
