Your foundation for innovative logistics
Building material manufacturers must be able to rely on a high-performing logistics partner. As the largest European rail freight operator, we ensure fast and reliable delivery of construction products, building materials and construction elements.
In the building materials industry, enormous quantities of raw materials and goods are transported every day. This requires exceptional organization, implementation and equipment demands within the supply chain. By choosing DB Schenker, you will reap the benefits of our extensive cross-border network of rail freight services. We offer you a Railport system with high-capacity service centers, the very latest loading and unloading techniques and special rail transport equipment. Our experience and expertise mean we can ensure precisely scheduled workflow management and deliver 'just-in-time' solutions for raw materials, building materials (such as cement, clay, gravel and chippings), construction elements and concrete parts.
We are your expert partner for transport planning, loading and unloading of all types of freight or the delivery of transshipment services and additional warehouse logistics services. For example, we deliver over one million tons of German clay to Italian tile manufacturers every year. We then transport the finished tiles all over the world. You will also find us the perfect partner for your construction site logistics needs. We have delivered approximately four million tons of materials to the major construction site for Berlin's new BER airport.
In addition to the logistics handling of building materials, we also offer customized solutions for waste disposal logistics and logistical infrastructures for key raw materials - lime, gypsum and slurry.
