“As a Global transportation and logistics company, we use CAST software to help analyze and optimize our customers’
supply chains. We use CAST globally for strategic optimization projects, currently working with key companies within
Schenker’s top 100, notably in the electronics, consumer, automotive and industrial sectors. Following ten years’ experience with CAST, we recently decided to upgrade to CAST Aurora and are currently engaged in training with the new product.”
