Press release

More departures and shorter journey times • Expansion of leading position in the national market

(Berlin/Essen/Moskau, 1 October 2012) DB Schenker Logistics now sends its European land transport consignments to Russia via Berlin, Krakow, Riga and Helsinki. These new gateways are closely linked with the rest of DB Schenker's European network and its hubs and allow additional transports to St. Petersburg and Moscow to be carried out.

"The new structure is part of our sales campaign which emphasizes our special focus on Russia, the CIS states and the Baltic states," says Karl Nutzinger, member of the Board of Management of Schenker AG responsible for Land Transport at DB Schenker. "Our 22 locations, our own national distribution network with regular-interval traffic and over 800 staff members make us the market leader in Russia. We are also very well positioned in the Baltic states."

Roughly 10,000 customers in Europe are currently being approached about the new services. No matter what countries they operate in, they can trust in uniform seamless processes, high quality standards and planning certainty. DB Schenker operates successfully for numerous customers in the region, including for customers in the automobile and consumer goods industries, some of the main sectors.

The new services being offered for Eastern Europe also include solutions that are especially environmentally friendly, such as short sea shipping and intermodal transport via Riga, where DB Schenker has a transshipment terminal to connect to Russian broad gauge.

As the logistics service provider for Volkswagen and Škoda, DB Schenker Rail recently transported the 1,500th container train to Volkswagen's Kaluga location in Russia. DB Schenker offers regular train connections from Duisburg to Moscow through its joint venture, Trans Eurasia Logistics (TEL).
