Schenker History

From the railroad and Gottfried Schenker to DB Schenker

The merger between the rail freight company Railion and shipping and logistics expert Schenker under the new DB Schenker brand marks the latest high point of a success story that dates back to the 19th century.

DB AG laid the foundation for this combination – the only one of its kind in the market – when it acquired Stinnes AG, and thus Schenker, in 2002. Both Deutsche Bahn and Schenker can look back on an eventful history.
