DB Schenker Expands Logistics Services

Berlin-based logistics and rail company DB Schenker, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn AG, has expanded its offerings to include a new “leadlogistics” service.

The company will now carry out management and integration of various service providers, particularly freight carriers, on behalf of the customer along the customer’s supply chain. These services include coordinating transport by truck and rail, as well as logistical services.

Every customer is assigned its own “control tower,” which is similar to an outsourced freight forwarding department, the company said.
