DB Schenker Launches connect 4.0 Shipping Portal in US

[ August 1, 2019   //   ]

DB Schenker, a leading, global integrated logistics provider, announced the launch of its connect 4.0 shipping portal allowing customers a more user-friendly interface for booking and managing shipments around the corner or the world. This new portal will go beyond DB Schenker’s current online platform – eSchenker, offering shippers the ability to get a quote for an air or ocean shipment, book and track the shipment from pickup to delivery.

“We are very excited about the design and functionality of our new shipping interface, connect 4.0,” said Jeff Barrie, CEO for DB Schenker USA. All things being equal, small to medium size businesses now can get a quote, book and track a shipment with full online visibility from pickup to delivery using air and ocean transportation singularly or as a combination of services offered,” he added.

“We can do this because of advanced technology, infrastructure and DB Schenker’s 125 years of freight forwarding expertise,“ said Richard Ebach, DB Schenker’s CIO Americas. “The connect 4 application was designed from the customers’ point of view, the goal was to create responsive and intuitive designs that provide immediate quoting, booking and tracking functionality that is expected from a leading digital forwarder,” he commented.

Launched in Europe last year, connect 4.0 has met with excellent customer acceptance offering shipping professionals throughout Europe, online access to competitive pricing, instant booking and shipment transparency.
