With our new system freight products DB SCHENKERsystem and DB SCHENKERsystem premium, DB Schenker has further strengthened its European land transport network. By distributing goods that can be loaded as individual pieces, e.g. boxes, crates or pallets, our customers can immediately take advantage of guaranteed connections between the 430 land transport branches. As a result, lead times will be significantly reduced.
Higher reliability due to standardization of products
With immediate effect all European business centers are linked with one another through daily connections. This will enable a much faster distribution of goods and thus greater production flexibility for European companies.
The network setup seamlessly connects DB Schenker’s existing 430 land transport branches in 38 European countries with a state-of-the-art production system. The new system is designed to accommodate the growing demand for cross-border shipments. Approximately 20,000 employees help managing these consignments.
Another standardization task is to bundle goods at the newly set intersections. Lead times between major European business centers will be significantly reduced as a result. In some cases lead times are already as low as 24 hours.
Furthermore, the use of a new platform strategy also enables DB Schenker to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. Thanks to state-of-the-art tracking technology, the status of each consignment can also be monitored from any place at any time.
