DB Schenker, one of the world’s largest logistics providers, has been KGS’s key partner for container monitoring since 2006. KGS' is the OEM behind the successful DB Schenkersmartbox, the leading real-time container monitoring solution and a valuable differentiator for DB Schenker. “We chose KGS because of their superior technology and excellent customer-orientation and comprehensive understanding of our situation,” said Christopher Regenhardt, Global Manager of the DB Schenkersmartbox. “KGS has lived up to the task and we’re looking forward to jointly expanding our leadership in container monitoring.”

DB Schenker’s customers benefit from the use of the DB Schenkersmartbox through reduced insurance premiums and higher supply chain transparency. For DB Schenker itself the DB Schenkersmartbox is a valuable differentiator and its most important product innovation, as recently acknowledged by Rüdiger Grube, CEO of parent company Deutsche Bahn.

In a recent podcast, Hans-Michael Dietmar, DB Schenker’s Director of Operational Processes, explains that container monitoring is a key trend for logistics.
