Logistics engineering for the world’s most valuable brands

November 20, 2018
In Leipzig, DB Schenker operates the largest European logistics center for the international supply of a famous German automobile manufacturer. The logistics center employs 1,100 employees on an area of 125,000 m². 150 trucks a day steer their way to the zone for incoming goods. More than 7,000 auto parts are stored, ranging from screws to pieces of a chassis all the way to entire engines. Every day, DB Schenker packs 4,500 m³ of goods in an average of 70 containers in the outgoing goods zone. In order for the sensitive and frequently sharp-edged automotive components to arrive at the automaker's international plants safe and sound, the pieces need to be protected from rust, scratches and dents. A team of experienced packaging experts is responsible for doing just that. The team goes through a long process (weighing, measuring and documenting) to develop a specific package for each part. Containers do not just have to be secure, but they also have to generate the smallest possible amount of refuse when they arrive. Find out more about DB Schenker: www.dbschenker.com
