The leading ground forwarding network in Europe

  • DB SCHENKERparcel: for parcels usually up to 30 kg weight
  • DB SCHENKERsystem: for groupage shipments with usually more than 30 up to 2,500 kg weight
  • DB SCHENKERdirect: the fast and flexible solution for shipments with more than 2,500 kg weight (part and full truck loads)

Our products are complemented by options that are dedicated to specific needs of our clientele or certain industries, e. g. guaranteed delivery before a certain daytime or additional security measures for high-value cargo.

At home in Europe

In addition, further products and product options are offered by the country organizations of DB Schenker to satisfy requirements that are characteristic for local markets but not for the entire European market. Customer-oriented services form a cornerstone of DB Schenker’s well-known performance in European Land Transport.

The products and options are subject to an extensive quality program audited and certified by DNV GL.

Experienced and well-trained staff

Through experienced, internationally oriented and well-trained staff, efficiently designed production and quality processes as well as sophisticated IT systems some 95 million shipments annually reach their destinations throughout Europe – punctually and reliably.

DB Schenker – Europäisches Netzwerk

Transport-related logistics services and, if required, tailor-made solutions complete the pan-European product portfolio with whatever our clientele may need. Furthermore, close interaction with the other business units of DB Schenker enables Land Transport to serve customers whose requirements go beyond ground forwarding and related services.

Not least, the DB Schenker country organizations with strong roots in the local markets ensure that the about 26,000 employees can commit themselves to customer orientation and satisfaction. Finally, the central network management ensures high quality standards and network efficiency for the benefit of our clientele.
