DB Schenker has been a consistent and quality logistics provider across major sports events since Sydney 2000 Olympic & Paralympic Games. Salt Lake 2002, Athens 2004, Torino 2006, Beijing 2008 and Vancouver 2010 have all featured prominently in our services portfolio.
“There have been two defining points for DB Schenker in sport. The first was when the company became an official service provider for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. The second one was when the company signed an agreement with the International Olympic Committee in 2003. Both of these points provided a tremendous platform in the world of sport.”
