License Management System

Contact Us for Pricing

Easily centralize company-wide export license application and renewal management. Avoid headaches — and fines!

Complying with international licensing requirements can be complicated. Applying for the correct licenses country-by-country is only the first step: licenses must also be renewed before they expire, or are exhausted. Failure to do so can lead to shipping delays, fines, and even a loss of export privileges.


Many Exporters simply use spreadsheets to manually manage their licenses, but this method is labor intensive and prone to error. Spreadsheets are also notoriously difficult to share securely, and in real-time, with those authorized to access the information. Fortunately, there is a better way!


DB Schenker’s License Management System (LMS) is a streamlined, cloud-based solution that helps you manage your licenses across multiple countries and jurisdictions. It automates export license activities and all related processes. Automatic reminders and 24/7 access reduce stress and increase peace of mind. With LMS, keeping up with government agencies, such as ITAR, EAR, OFAC, and more, is easy. LMS also allows you to set user permissions for viewing and making changes, with a complete audit trail. Everyone has access to the information they need, not the information they don’t. This promotes easy, secure, company-wide compliance (for a full list of key features, see below).


With over 140 years of international logistics experience, DB Schenker knows what a challenge managing export licenses can be. With LMS, you can spend less time tracking paperwork and more time building your business!

Do I Need to Register for a License Management System (LMS) Account First?


Yes, a user account must be registered and approved by DB Schenker before you can successfully log in and begin using the License Management Tool.


Does the License Management System (LMS) Integrate with Other Shipping Solutions?


Yes, the DB Schenker LMS integrates with both the Export Compliance Management (ECM) and Restricted Party Screening (RPS) solutions.

You must be licensed in each tool that they would like to use to see the integration options.

Does LMS integrate with the ITAR Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Control (DDTC) D-Trade?

Does LMS Integrate with the Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry & Security (BIS) SNAP-R?


Yes. If you login to SNAP-R through the LMS tool, it will capture and use all the relevant information from your application upon submission of your license to SNAP-R.
