DB Schenker Success Story

ProGlove´s Solution for Logistics

DB Schenker has integrated a “pick-by-vision” solution created by Picavi and ProGlove. Workers are now more mobile – no need to return to a central terminal for orders. And they have both hands free to operate forklifts and handle materials. For the back office, the solution interfaces directly with management systems for seamless workflows.

Logistics providers across the world are feeling the pressure to establish dynamic, flexible, and more mobile processes that allow them to confidently handle changes in consumer demand.

SUBSTANTIAL RESULT: Digital transformation projects can be critical to maintaining competitive supply chains and easy to implement solutions like ProGlove are quick, high-impact wins.

Using ProGlove’s wireless and wearable scanner gives frontline workers the flexibility to work from anywhere in the warehouse and the integrated worker feedback helps to raise the quality of output through visual, acoustic and haptic feedback. Based on our research this can lead to a 33% reduction in common picking errors.

The easy-to-use scanning glove saves up to 40% of time compared to conventional scanners.​

DB Schenker

DB Schenker is one of the world's top logistics providers, which supports industry and trade in the exchange of goods through land transport, air and ocean freight, contract logistics and supply chain management on a global level.

DB Schenker Challenge

DB Schenker needed to overcome two major challenges: on one hand, preventing stationary scanners to restrict operations related to warehouse logistics, such as incoming or outgoing products and storage; on the other hand, reducing picking errors, which could not be prevented by the use of conventional scanners.

ProGlove Solution

Since DB Schenker has deployed ProGlove technology, workers have their hands free to pick up items. Additionally, optic, acoustic and haptic alerts provide valuable instant feedback for workers, which reduces the possibility of committing mistakes during the picking process. Hence, picking becomes faster, easier and safer.

The ProGlove Effect @scale

At DB Schenker, ProGlove significantly increases process efficiency. This reduces process times by up to 40% compared to conventional scanner solutions.

The combined solution created by ProGlove and Picavi is in use today at DB Schenker.

Warehouse workers use Google Glass smart glasses and ProGlove wearable barcode scanners for a “pick-by-vision” solution designed by Picavi.

DB Schenker implemented ProGlove back in 2018 at its warehouse in Eching for optimizing their picking process. With both hands free to operate forklifts and handle materials, workers are now more mobile – no need to return to a central terminal for orders.
