Stories from Schaeffler: Digitalization

Within the next few years, all vehicles and machines will be connected with each other via the internet of things. Today, Schaeffler already relies on intelligent products, interconnected production, more efficient processes, and innovative services that make the digital world of tomorrow possible in the first place – whether they are found in automobiles, production machinery, or wind turbines.

Digital logistics: The cube that keeps things rolling

Every year, Schaeffler sends hundreds of thousands of goods consignments around the world by ship, rail, air, and truck. But what means of transport and what transport route is the cheapest, most reliable, and fastest? And which is the most climate-neutral option? Until now, logistics employees had to use various data and tools to determine these questions. Many of these tasks are now carried out by the Transportation Data Cube.
