DB Schenker, one of the world’s leading 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 sales channels supported by ChannelAdvisor.

The turnover on online marketplaces has grown enormously and has left conventional e-commerce websites far behind. A scalable multi-channel solution is therefore essential in the current business environment. Vanessa Holl, Vice President E-commerce, Global Contract Logistics at DB Schenker explained: “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 at a global level”.

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

“For most brands and retailers, a lack of a global logistics and fulfilment solution is a key factor inhibiting global expansion”, said 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.”
