DB Schenker partners with Magento to boost e-commerce offering
Jan 9, 2019: Logistics firm DB Schenker in order to boost its e-commerce business, has entered into strategic partnership with Magento, one of the world's leading providers of e-commerce platforms, to equip small and mid-size merchants with a powerful new extension.
The new partnership will combine DB Schenker's fulfilment experience with global logistics markets with the powerful customisation and flexibility of the Magento e-commerce platform. This will provide retailers a seamless connection between the front-end and back-end on a global scale.
Being available through Magento Marketplace, the extension delivers a quick, convenient and cost-efficient way to connect web shops and warehousing services.
The partnership evolved from increasing customer demand for web-shop order tracking. The offered solution includes all related warehousing activities, especially pick and pack, and delivery status updates along the entire supply chain.
"At DB Schenker, we are actively investing in new products and channels and herewith looking forward to partnering with Magento to set new standards in global supply chain management," says Jochen Thewes, CEO of Schenker AG.
Customers will be able to use DB Schenker's network of shared facilities to enable best-in-class e-commerce order fulfillment. As a strategic partner, Magento will provide merchants with a flexible shopping cart system based on open source technology.
