Global logistics provider integrates data feeds from the world’s leading schedule information provider.

Burlingame, CA – November 5, 2012 – Linescape, the leading provider of global sailing schedule, vessel and carrier data for containerships, and Dachser GmbH & Co. KG, of Kempten, Germany, one of the world’s largest global logistics providers, have announced the extent of their cooperation which began over one year ago. Linescape has been supplying Dachser with a broad base of containership data including: sailing schedules, vessel register data, carrier profiles, local carrier contacts and carbon footprint data.

Linescape and Dachser have worked closely over the last year to integrate Linescape’s database into Dachser‘s newly developed Transport Management System (TMS) for the business area of Dachser Air & Sea Logistics which started to be rolled-out last year. Upon completion, over 3000 employees in 140 profit centres will benefit from the integration of Linescape’s data, instantly and directly accessible through Dachser’s TMS.

"The Linescape data feeds bring us a multitude of benefits", confirmed Björn Diederich, Business Analyst Sea of Dachser. "Our operators previously had to research schedule, vessel and carrier information from a variety of sources, which wasted much time and risked introducing errors. Now, we save thousands of hours in transport planning by finding these data inside our TMS, and allowing direct integration into our order
processing. The increase in workflow speed and data quality allows us to serve our customers much more quickly and effectively”.

Linescape hosts the container sailing schedules from over 120 shipping lines, including deep-sea, short-sea and feeders, with some 8 million voyages through 3,000 ports by more than 10,500 cargo and container vessels. Data includes a wide variety of in-depth information including: sailing schedules, vessel register data, carrier profiles, local carrier contacts, and CO2 emissions. Linescape pioneered data feeds in 2010 and are now the leading schedule data supplier to shippers, forwarders, logistic providers, port communities and logistics websites.

The CEO and co-founder of Linescape, David Tarizzo, confirms the mutual benefits of their cooperation: "Dachser presented us with many challenges to fulfil, to deliver a vast array of data, some of which was not readily available at the time. Our mission to provide the highest level of service to our customers, and our advanced database architecture, allowed us to quickly respond to their needs and satisfy all of Dachser’s
requirements ahead of schedule."
