Quick ROI: DB Schenker reduced the time-to-market of their analytics project from 3 months to 1 hour, for a fraction of the cost, and got the possibility to offer business insights faster to their clients, even for those who have not rolled-out any IoT hardware. 3 months to 1 hour

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 out to be one-off data science projects which were expensive to run and hard to reproduce.

a joint project to automatically detect key transport events and anomalies, in real-time. Let AI tell you if your supply chain is doing fine

Pathway is a very clever, very dynamic company, focusing on algorithmics to prepare for better and smoother logistics and supply chains. Their talent and their knowledge is outstanding. We are very proud to launch a close collaboration.

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.

Pathway to intelligent logistics and piece of mind

After feeding raw IoT data into Pathway Logistics App, 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

Pathway is solving critical supply chain issues

Pathway Logistics Application is a one-stop-shop cloud-based application to provide immediately actionable insights on top of data for logistic assets, including IoT data and status data. The Logistics Application is Pathway's lighthouse data product, built in Pathway's own technology.
