CIO/CDO & Member of the Board of Management, DB Schenker
The Business case
DB Schenker offers a visibility platform to its clients. Until recently, the value of visibility was limited to tracking. Unlocking the value of this data meant expensive and lengthy projects. These turned to be one-off data science projects.
How to increase OTIF? DB Schenker was determined to answer the needs of its clients. Information about risks of damage to cargo or transport planning was missing. This inhibited the strategic decision process at DB Schenker.
How did Pathway™ help?
After feeding raw IoT data into Pathway™, DB Schenker received:
Anomaly detection: sudden change of mode of transport, rerouting, idling, damage to cargo etc., without the need to pre-define alert rules
Automatic risk assessment: highlighting places where transports accumulate delays & shocks, transport with significant shocks/vibrations
Automatic identification of underperforming, and/or malfunctioning sensors
Automatic detection and precise mapping of geofences
