Empowering Global e-commerce: DB Schenker announces Strategic Alliance with ChannelAdvisor

[ April 10, 2019   //   ]

DB Schenker, one of the leading global logistics providers has announced a strategic partnership with
ChannelAdvisor Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable brands
and retailers to increase global sales. The partnership will help enable DB Schenker’s customers to connect
with over one hundred selling channels supported by ChannelAdvisor.

The turnover on online marketplaces has grown enormously and has left conventional e-commerce websites
far behind. Therefore, a scalable multi-channel solution is essential today. Vanessa Holl, Vice President
Global e- commerce Vector Market, Global Contract Logistics at DB Schenker explains: “We are continuously
improving our service offering to customers beyond e-fulfilment and our strategic partnership with ChannelAdvisor
will offer them comprehensive access to key marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay on a global Level.”

The integration entrenches DB Schenker as a leading global provider in e-commerce logistics, offering all
warehouse-related services, especially pick and pack, returns management, and visibility alongside the
supply chain. ChannelAdvisor customers will get access to DB Schenker’s global network of shared facilities
to enable best-in-class e-commerce order fulfilment.

“For most brands and retailers, lack of a global logistics and fulfilment solution is a key factor inhibiting global
expansion,” says Håkan Thyr, director of strategic partnerships in EMEA at ChannelAdvisor. “Our alliance with DB Schenker will give our customers access to a leading and global solution to counteract that challenge.”
