At DB Schenker, we are committed to safeguarding our integrity. We aim to act ethically in all business transactions and in compliance with statutory provisions. Like all business though, situations can arise in which conduct is not consistent with the DB Code of Conduct, the Schenker Employee Handbook, or any of the policies referenced in the Schenker Employee Handbook. In such cases, we want to know about suspected violations of law or misconduct and we encourage you to report it.
