DB Schenker continues roll out of digital platform with addition of air services

DB Schenker has continued the roll-out of its Connect 4.0 online portal, adding air and sea services to the existing overland offering.
The platform was launched at the end of August 2018 for land transportation in Germany and Spain, and DB Schenker has now added air and ocean services.
Customers can use the online platform to also ship airfreight from all over Germany to top export destinations. By Ocean, customers can ship to 50 countries on door-to-door basis covering thousands of port combinations.
The connect 4.0 platform can be used to generate a quote in real time, get an estimated delivery time and also manage freight consignments. The platform can also use the platform to track goods, as well as create and distribute consignment reports.
Schenker chief executive Jochen Thewes said:  "Our new connect 4.0 platform makes professional logistics simpler than at any time in the past. We have merged our main transportation services on a single platform, which represents a significant step in our ongoing digitalization strategy.
"For our customers this connects digital ease of use with our global network of logistic professionals.”
