Transforming operational procurement with Deutsche Post DHL

Deutsche Post DHL (DP DHL) had a vision: reduce its cost per purchasing transaction by centralizing a few service centers to carry out a highly standardized and efficient requisition-to-PO process throughout the 220 countries where DP DHL operates. To achieve this, the purchasing staff needed an easy-to-use solution with high user adoption.

The Challenge:

  • Reduce cost per purchasing transaction by 20% within three years

  • Standardize the purchasing process across 35 locations globally and multiple purchasing systems

  • Improve purchasing compliance and in turn, boost automation

See why DP DHL chose IBX Business Network (now Tradeshift) to advance their purchasing organization and lower their operating cost per PO line by 31%.
