Digitalization and innovation

  • DB Schenker implemented AutoStore, an automated goods-to-customer system, in order to improve logistics for MQ Marqet, a leading retailer for high-quality fashion in Sweden. The automated solution for online order processing and returns handling, which is operated in Gothenburg, sets standards for sustainable and agile logistics, thereby strengthening DB Schenker’s position in e-commerce.
  • At its first product show, DB Schenker presented numerous digital innovations from all areas. This also included a new virtual warehouse solution that relies on a network of on-demand production service providers. The virtual warehouse lowers delivery costs, reduces delivery times and is good for the environment.
  • Schenker Ventures invested in the Warehousing 1 start-up, which offers a platform for e-commerce fulfillment. This is the first investment by DB Schenker’s new venture capital unit. Other well-known venture capital investors are also taking part in the Warehousing 1 Series A round. The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered a boom in online shopping. Consumer brands around the world have adapted their sales channels to the new market situation. This has resulted in a large number of new variants of online shopping. Warehousing 1 picks up on this trend.
