DB Schenker, the division of German rail giant Deutsche Bahn, is well renowned in the supply chain industry.

Here, Supply Chain Digital takes a closer look at the company’s air freight solution.

With air freight playing an expanding role in companies’ global supply chains, it is thought that over $6trn in goods are carried by air every year - equating to $18.6bn worth of goods daily.

DB Schenker’s air freight enables organisations to:

  • Put time-sensitive cargo on the next available departure.

  • Reduce warehouse storage costs.

  • Gain end-to-end control and visibility over the supply chain.
