connect 4 land: DB Schenker starts rollout of new digital booking platform
Customers in Germany can now book DB Schenker's land freight services online
Customers in Germany can now access DB Schenker's logistics services for land transport online through a new digital booking platform called connect 4 land. The platform has already been successfully tested in Spain and is now available there as well. It will be rolled out in further European countries by the end of the year. By 2019, customers throughout Europe will be able to use the new digital platform for system freight services.
DB Schenker's other business units for air and ocean freight will soon be launching their own online booking systems, connect 4 ocean and connect 4 air.
"By launching connect 4 land, we are taking another important step towards a digital future and are equipping our company for long-term success," says Jochen Thewes, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DB Schenker. "Direct and personal communication with our customers will of course remain an important aspect of our core business. However, the new digital booking platform will make it easy for small and medium-sized customers in particular to use DB Schenker's professional services."
connect 4 land enables customers of DB Schenker to have quick online access to the largest land transport network in Europe. Business customers have now access to convenient and direct online booking –including by smartphone – immediate and transparent information about prices and transport time, and easy tracking.
Connect 4 land is now available for DB Schenker's German and Spanish transport markets. More information is available at www.dbschenker.com.
