DB Schenker Integrates Client’s Procurement System and MyMPS
By Anuja Abraham
DB SCHENKER marineparts, the special air freight service for global parts supply to ships, is now offering a direct integration between the client’s procurement system and MyMPS, DB Schenker’s online inventory management.
When the client sends a purchase order to a vendor, the details will automatically be uploaded in MyMPS on order line level. “We can then send status update messages back into the client’s procurement system,” says Helge Jensen, Product Management EMEA, DB SCHENKER marineparts. “This will give the client a much faster and more precise overview and the client as well as we will save time.” Target groups for this service are ship owners, fleet managers, manufacturers of marine parts, shipyards, shipbuilders, and MRO providers (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul). This new feature is now being implemented with one of the largest clients.
At the trade shows SMM in Hamburg (September 4 to 7, 2012) as well as at IMPA London (September 12 and 13, 2012) the DB Schenker specialists will demonstrate the system live at their stand.
