Offer intended for customers of competitor Damco • Short-term agreements covered • Stable conditions for stable supply chains
Tilburg, September 7, 2020 – Leading global logistics service provider DB Schenker approved a Stability Package for customers of its competitor Damco. Intended for affected companies, the package includes an offer to take over short-term service agreements of up to two months’ contract period for the same conditions as agreed with Damco. With the Stability Package, DB Schenker responds to market unrest following an announcement of A.P. Moeller-Maersk to discontinue the Damco brand and its FCL NVOCC business.
Thorsten Meincke, Member of the Management Board for Air and Ocean Freight at DB Schenker: "Stable conditions promise stable supply chains: that is what DB Schenker stands for. The last thing shippers need at present is further uncertainty. We are making an offer to all those who are now looking for long-term security and reliability."
To seamlessly take on these obligations, DB Schenker can access globally secured ocean freight capacities at short notice. For companies who are in longer running agreements with Damco, DB Schenker pledges to provide prioritized quotes on short notice.
