DB Schenker stands for the transportation and logistics activities of Deutsche Bahn. The Logistics sector of DB is the world's second largest transportation and logistics services provider based on revenue and performance.
In financial year 2014, DB Schenker generated revenues of around 19,8 billion euros, approximately 50 percent of the DB Group’s revenues. Through its Transportation and Logistics Division, DB holds top positions in global air and ocean freight and has Europe’s densest land transport network and the rail expertise of Europe’s largest rail freight company.
With around 2,000 locations in all of the world’s most important economic regions, DB Schenker has a global network geared toward customer service, quality and sustainability. This success is owed primarily to DB Schenker’s 95,700 employees, all of whom place customer satisfaction and quality at the center of their work.
DB Schenker stands for performance, service and safety, regardless of the complexity or extent of logistics tasks and requirements. We are well equipped for any and all challenges thanks to our robust business model. Merging international markets and increasing flows of goods are challenges we face every day, and at the same time are what drives our business. Our customers, from regional family-owned companies to international corporations, must be able to act with increasing speed and flexibility – and on a global scale. Whether in terms of procurement, production or sales markets.
We have set out to link these markets using environmentally friendly, intercontinental and seamless logistics chains. To do so, we have developed appropriate door-to-door solutions and complex service packages covering the entire value chain.
We have a presence in some 140 countries around the world; we work in a network but operate locally. We offer integrated services from a single source: seamless transportation chains across all carriers – whether freight train, truck, ship or airplane – combined with complex additional logistical services. Thanks to our specialized industry expertise, we have been a partner of the automotive, consumer goods and high-tech industries for years, just to name a few examples. We offer our customers an increasing number of integrated industry solutions in these market segments.
We are systematically adjusting to growing awareness of climate protection. In a time in which environmental consciousness is increasingly becoming a social responsibility, we help our customers improve their environmental footprint. DB Schenker’s climate protection activities are an integral component of DB’s Climate Protection Program 2020. This program aims to cut the DB Group’s specific CO2 emissions – emissions from transport services – by an additional 20 percent worldwide between 2006 and 2020. This target is based on achievements made in recent years: DB has already reduced its specific CO2 emissions from rail transport by over 40 percent since 1990. The Logistics sector has defined specific savings targets in all business units, for example in optimizing fleets and improving the energy efficiency of buildings and facilities.
