The system delivers real-time analysis of issues that trucks, trains and vessels can experience on their transport routes. Bad weather, manufacturing issues and road closures are some of the scenarios that the software analyses.

“Particularly in industries such as the chemicals sector, in which delicate products are transported, the security of the environment, employees and goods plays an important role,” said Tobias Larsson, head of Resilience 360, DHL customer solutions & innovation. “We are delighted to help Evonik with this in the future while reducing the costs and risks along the supply chain by providing our data and expertise.”

Robert Schmidkunz, head of logistics security, Evonik Technology & Infrastructure, said: “In doing so, we are continuing to take account of our responsibility for safely transporting chemical goods. Through actively monitoring supply chains, Evonik is supporting the transport-risk analyses that have already been introduced successfully. With this tool, we are also contributing to the digitalization of our supply chain processes.”
