The Problem: Global operations need to be optimized and outgoing shipping volume needs to be reduced
DB Schenker, the world’s leading global logistics provider, supports industry and trade in the global exchange of goods through transport, air and ocean freight, contract logistics, and supply chain management.
In Tilburg, The Netherlands, DB Schenker operates a dedicated 40.000 sqm Contract Logistics operation for Nokia Networks. From there, Nokia’s network and communications components are picked, packed and distributed all over the world. To optimize order packaging and reduce the volume of outgoing shipments, Nokia and DB Schenker jointly decided to install an On Demand Packaging® system. Supplier Packsize was a familiar partner for On Demand Packaging® systems to DB Schenker in Germany. The cooperation and the results achieved in this operation led DB Schenker to opt for Packsize as their partner of choice in the Netherlands as well.
“It was an absolute eye-opener with regards to the efficiency and value this solution brings to a supply chain.”
Raymond Jansink, DB Schenker Key Account Manager for Nokia Networks
The Solution: Increase fill rates even further
