QWYK, a digital freight start-up, has signed an agreement to further enhance DB Schenker's digital portfolio by connecting the company to the largest database for global sailing schedules.
Qwyk provides a logistics integration platform for 3PLs, digital forwarders, shippers and SaaS providers.
'We are proud that Qwyk has been chosen to be the provider of choice to partner with them,' said Qwyk CEO Martyn Verhaegen.
Qwyk, in combination with DB Schenker's own data, was selected for its solution because it has the most accurate and complete data set. With 90 carriers in Qwyk's portfolio and the technology to assure data accuracy both parameters were fulfilled to meet Schenker's needs.
DB Schenker's vice president Ocean 4.0 Florian Braun said: 'Schenker is investing heavily in digitisation and has a number of interesting in-house solutions. On sailing schedule management, however, Qwyk was offering the easiest and most comprehensive solution for Schenker.'
Ocean 4.0 is sea component of the Connect 4.0 platform from DB Schenker which allows customers to dispatch freight consignments quickly and conveniently online. At the click of a mouse, business customers can access the company's international transportation network and dispatch shipments using any mode of transportation.
