Lobster_data impressed us from the off – particularly its speed, intuitive handling and the fact that it’s platform agnostic.

Tobias Streich, EDI expert, Schnellecke Logistics


As a global logistics service provider focussed on value-added logistics for the automotive industry, Schnellecke Logistics was facing problems on numerous fronts. The time needed to convert files was a significant concern given the company’s just-in-time and just-in-sequence production practices. Then there was the challenge of managing production-synchronous processes spanning more than 80 locations across 12 countries together with a lack of flexibility in a rapidly changing EDI landscape.

Lobster_data was designed for data integration, API management, EDI & EAI, Big Data and more, giving Lobster a unique, customisable proposition to solve Schnellecke’s pain points. And the results speak for themselves: the company was soon able to convert 60,000 documents a day without breaking a sweat, and as the individual Schnellecke locations were now able to liaise directly with car manufacturers, critical delivery deadlines were met with ease. Schnellecke can now develop basic mappings that can quickly be tailored to each customer, standard and format – even at short notice. Thanks to the incredible user-friendliness of the Lobster_data no-code technology, Schnellecke has not only implemented these projects without outsourcing, but has also fostered their in-house mapping knowledge, ensuring process transparency.

Our solution ticked a number of technical boxes for Schnellecke, not least SAP ERP, SJS, Oracle-DB, WinELKE DTA and MySQL connectivity as well as the ability to handle EDIFACT and IDoc data along with OFTP and FTP protocols.
