DSV The Company

DSV is a global supplier of transport and logistics solutions. With offices in more than 70 countries and an international network of partners and agents, making them a truly global player. The effective, professional solutions provided by the company's 22,000 employees enabled DSV to record a worldwide revenue of 6.1 billion euro for 2013.

The organization is divided into three divisions: 

DSV Road

With around 9,000 employees, DSV Road is one of the three leading logistics providers in Europe. More than 17,000 trucks are ready to carry goods in a fast, efficient, flexible and environmentally friendly manner all over Europe.

DSV Air & Sea

DSV Air & Sea offers alternative routings and flexible schedules to suit even the most demanding logistical requirements to and from all parts of the world. The approximately 6,000 employees handle more than 750,000 TEUs of sea freight and 250,000 tons of airfreight every year.

DSV Solutions

DSV Solutions partners up with customers to design and deliver logistics solutions, adding value by increasing operational and cost efficiency. They employ over 6,000 people and operate more than 130 warehouses comprising a total of 2,300,000 m2

The Challenge

With such a big operation the issue of freight settlement is important and urgent. According to DSV it used to be a huge job to check all the invoices, and sometimes it didn’t even get done at all.

The Solution

MP Objects Supply Chain Orchestration
MP Objects contains all the rates agreed with carriers, which enables DSV to match the invoices it receives against the transport orders fully automatically. DSV also uses the MP Objects software for its own invoicing process. Whether they want to be billed per kilo, loading meter or ton kilometer, all their customers receive a clear, consolidated invoice. In addition, they can continually compare carriers’ performance against their service level agreements.

The Result

Now DSV is a hundred percent sure that they never pay too much.  They also gained a much better insight into the cost and profit of their transport activities. Their logistics has become measurable and transparent at a customer level.
