DB Schenker, one of the

experience in China, DB Schenker is one of the biggest 3PL companies in the
local market operating extensive freight forwarding business by Air, Ocean,

systems for both existing and new customers of DB Schenker from various
industries comprising Industrial, Healthcare, e- Commerce and Electronics.

Pinghu to our warehouse portfolio. This is an important milestone for DB
Schenker, manifesting our growing footprint in China’s contract logistics
market”, says Thomas Sorensen, CEO North/Central China, Schenker China Ltd.
