Today we offer unbeatable proximity to the customer in all the key economic centers with what is probably the densest network of locations available on the market. This is something we intend to demonstrate with our sales campaign.”
DB Schenker country organizations operate today in Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey. The company currently has a workforce of over 5,000 employees spread throughout the region.
