    Electrified by performance.

    Proud Logistics Partner of Porsche´s GT4 e-Performance Tour

    Porsche Motorsport and DB SCHENKER shift up a gear towards climate neutrality: by partnering up for the demo tour of Porsche's electrically powered GT4 e-Performance. Around the globe the revolutionary e-racer prototype is going to offer speed-enthusiasts a glimpse at the future of racing, while we will do the same in the field of sustainable logistics.

    The race for clean logistics is on. And our track is more than 30,000 km long.

    Over 30,000 kilometers to achieve 1 goal

    Drift, drag, hill climb. The new Porsche GT4 e-Performance will have to prove itself in many disciplines on its tour. And so will we. Before each new stop for Porsche is a race for DB SCHENKER. On roads. On rails. And across oceans. Always with one grand prize in mind: a cleaner future.

    A little love talk can go a long way

    Our latest video, "Love Talk," marks the next milestone in our partnership with Porsche Motorsport. This captivating video showcases a heartwarming story of friendship between two remarkable vehicles - a truck and a race car - both powered entirely by electricity. It's an inspiring tale of what is possible in our industry when innovation and sustainability come together.

    Greater China

    From the electric energy of Tokyo´s bustling streets to Greater China’s mainland, we’ve pioneered the way we do logistics and extended our racetrack another 3008 kilometers. Guided by our two custom containers, we maintain the seamless journey of the GT4 e-Performance amidst Shanghai's urban skyline and Guangzhou's lively streets. In Guangzhou, one of our DB SCHENKER electric trucks successfully facilitated an eco-friendly delivery to the Guangzhou Auto Show.

    First milestone: Austin, Texas

    In March 2023 the Porsche GT4 e-Performance presented its skills at the legendary South by Southwest festival and conference. With its dedication to innovation and creativity it’s the perfect place to put our ambitious cooperation to the test.

    Welcome to Atlanta!

    After the Porsche GT4 e-Performance travelled sustainably by ship with biofuel all the way from Europe to America, we successfully delivered the e-racer prototype to Austin, Texas. Our next milestone was Atlanta, Georgia, where some of our colleagues were able to see the car in person. See for yourself on LinkedIn.

    Laguna Seca

    Amidst the stunning backdrop of Laguna Seca's Rennsport Reunion 7, we proudly present the arrival of the GT4 e-Performance, arriving in style after a cross-country journey by train, all the way from the vibrant East coast to the picturesque West coast of the United States. As we deliver the race car at this iconic event, we can't help but reflect on the incredible journey of our Americas tour, which has taken us to inspiring places and introduced us to passionate motorsport and logistics enthusiasts along the way. It's been an absolute blast, and we're thrilled to share this moment with you!

    Tokyo

    Our adventures in APAC continue as we unveil our latest triumph: the flawless voyage of the GT4 e-Performance race car prototype from the glitzy streets of Singapore to the neon-lit boulevards of Tokyo. Our tireless crew ensured that this high-performance marvel arrived in Tokyo unscathed, preserving its futuristic charm and cutting-edge technology. But hold on to your racing helmets because here’s the twist – a select group of our employees got to rub shoulders with the GT4 e-Performance, feeling firsthand the exhilaration that comes from realizing we don’t just move cargo, we transport dreams and ignite passions. 

    As a company, we continuously invest in renewable energies and greener products for our customers. We have firmly anchored the topic of sustainability in our corporate strategy and have set ourselves the goal of becoming the world's leading provider in green logistics.

    Be part of our journey and be a pioneer with us.

    The race is on. So stay tuned!
