DB Cargo case study

System puts planning on track.


  • Software development
  • Managed services

Our work at DB Cargo.

DB Cargo (formerly DB Schenker) coordinates the pickup and delivery of a variety of commodities across the UK. The company employs 88,000 people across 2,000 locations. Jade’s system keeps the wheels turning and freight deliveries on track.


Create a standard company-wide planning system.

DB Cargo required a system to manage deliveries to the right destinations, at the right times. Planning had to factor in track closures and tight delivery windows. The new system had to draw information from multiple sources and present a single picture of real-time train movements and delivery schedules.

Jade’s Consolidated Planning Tool (CPT).

The Consolidated Planning Tool (CPT) provides a single integrated view of customer ordering and train planning. Controllers can see how trips are progressing, yard personnel know when trains will arrive and depart, and management can see what’s going on in every corner of their network.

Better plans, better service.

Standardized planning keeps everyone in the picture. DB Cargo’s customers use an online system to order train services and see expected arrival times of trains carrying their goods. Producing train plans now takes less time, which has improved overall service.
