About DB Schenker

At DB Schenker, we’re committed to providing innovative supply chain solutions that challenge the status quo. As a global industry leader with more than 150 years of logistics experience, we’re proud to support industry and trade in the global exchange of goods.

DB Schenker’s Global Sustainability approach
One of the most important topics in today’s business world is sustainability and its overall impact on global carbon footprint as well as company’s business models.

As such, there is a growing awareness in the logistics and transportation industry about the need for achieving the critical balance between global supply chains and ecological as well as economical challenges towards reducing our customer’s overall ecological footprint.

As a leading provider of global logistics and transportation services, sustainability is implemented as a core of our business practices – from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), to sustainable growth and reducing our carbon footprint as well as developing new products and collaborating with our suppliers and partners. By integrating these principles into every aspect of our business, we are committing ourselves to being a sustainability leader and socially responsible business partner in the global communities we serve.

Vision & Strategic Framework

The DB Schenker sustainability vision and strategic framework help us deliver on our company purpose “advancing businesses and lives by shaping the way our world connects”.

It also incorporates the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), helping to benchmark our ambitions. Each building block has what we call a “mission-SDG” which is the area where we want to lead our industry, and some “commitment-SDG”, which are areas where we want to do our part in driving progress.

The sustainability Framework consists of the building blocks Clean Logistics, Thriving Communities, and Shared Value – all supported by Global Partnerships.

Carbon Zero Target

We committed to the Deutsche Bahn Climate Neutral Target 2040. To reach this ambitious goal, we are continuously investing in innovative transport solutions such as new Renewable Energies, our E-Mobility Fleet and Carbon Neutral Products for our customers. Since over 15 years, we are consulting our global DB Schenker customers in regards to their transport carbon footprint visibility, supply chain optimization and modal shift in order to meet their environmental targets.

Innovation and Digitalization
Innovative activities have been present in our company since its beginning in the 19th century – and with approximately 74,500 employees worldwide – our aim is to deliver the most innovative services and solutions to our customers. DB Schenker accelerates the shift to a data-driven company culture by actively developing analytics and artificial intelligence based solutions. We offer state-of the art digital services, such as platforms and mobile applications as well as new IoT solutions to take our customers further.

Leading the way to a more connected and sustainable world It started out in 1872 when Gottfried Schenker, who founded Schenker & Co. in Vienna, offered the first consolidated rail shipments from Paris to Vienna. For one and a half centuries, the men and women of DB Schenker have dedicated themselves to helping our customers in the exchange of goods to and from anywhere in the world. So much has changed in the world during this period. But what has not changed, is the commitment of our more than 76,100 employees worldwide to provide our customers a full range of logistics and transportation services to meet their ever-changing needs. History provides us with a sense of identity. Better understanding who we are, where we have come from and where we are going, can help create the future. As one of the world’s leading global logistics provider, DB Schenker is committed to creating the future by elevating the lives of everyone we work with. Elevate is a transitive verb. It means to exalt, lift up, and improve in any number of ways, from intellectually to physically, financially to morally. And whenever we talk about ‘elevating lives,’ we talk about how we can better elevate ourselves as a company, individual, and community. In our anniversary year, we want to push this pioneering spirit to a new dimension by driving innovation, shaping a sustainable future, and connecting communities.

Internationality, teamwork, reliability and an innovative spirit are the values which set us apart. Our customers know our capabilities and what differentiates us from the others. As we start our next 150 years, we view this as a tremendous opportunity to reconnect with families, friends, co-workers, and clients, re-evaluating the crucial role they play in our and your success and how we can elevate their lives even more. How we are celebrating our 150th Anniversary Throughout the year, we are holding regional anniversary events for our employees, customers, and partners. The focus of our celebrations will be a company give-back challenge where through employee involvement, we will donate up to 1.5 million Euros to four charities over four quarters. The themed program is called, ‘Leading the Way Challenge’. Our employees will download a customized program app and through physical activity challenges and challenging mind games with in-app quizzes, they earn kilometers which go towards one of the four charity organizations.
