Sending spare parts throughout Switzerland
To save time, SBB orders a courier directly via SAP, its ERP program. An interface to swissconnect's logistics software enables express delivery to be scheduled immediately and the right means of transport to be deployed at the right time and in the right place. This is made possible by the close-knit swissconnect network of around 80 courier companies located throughout Switzerland. For spare parts weighing up to 30 kg, delivery with the unique swissconnect transport system is usually the fastest solution. Local bike or car couriers pick up or deliver the parts on the last mile. The parts travel over longer distances by railway, avoiding traffic jams and practically emission-free. Heavy and large parts are delivered directly in the appropriate vehicles.
