Aptean Routing & Scheduling Calidus Edition Case Study: DHL Supply Chain

12 Oct 2020


  • Aptean Routing & Scheduling Enhances DHL Healthcare Supply Chain Efficiencies

DHL Supply Chain is a global leader in supply chain management and third-party logistics. It is world-renowned for implementing innovative logistics solutions across a wide range of industries including pharmaceuticals and healthcare. DHL understands the need for ensuring fast, compliant, and cost-efficient deliveries of pharma products and is proud to claim its title of leading supplier in this sector.

The Challenge

The success of DHL Supply Chain is impressive. The reason is two-fold: its remarkable efficiency and high level of industry specialization. Both of which are key to its success in the healthcare logistics marketplace. But its overall transportation operation was experiencing some challenges:

  • Large volume of healthcare and life science service users

  • Strict regulations and quality standards to meet and adhere to

  • Outdated IT systems

The Solution

The strict regulations and quality standards of the healthcare market meant that DHL Supply Chain needed a solution that would better enhance its logistics operations and ensure it remained the leading supplier in the industry. Alongside this, the solution also needed to be able to:

  • Allow customers to monitor and track the status of origin of stock

  • Enhance operational efficiencies and ensure full compliance with legal requirements

  • Effectively meet the demands placed on the supply chain by the healthcare sector

The Result

The operational success of DHL Supply Chain has improved since the implementation of our purpose-built routing and scheduling software, Aptean Routing & Scheduling Calidus Edition. The software has helped DHL to better enhance its logistics operations and ensure its transportation capabilities within the system are a good fit and can meet the demands of the healthcare sector.
