Last week, DB Schenker threw a joint Annual Dinner Party for over 1,600 employees in Shanghai, an evening of amazing entertainment and, most importantly, appreciation.
Considering the fast pace and digital transformation of the logistics industry, the evening was themed The Future is Now! The motto was not only reflected in the venue’s futuristic decoration but also in the event’s related activities resulting in a highly efficient and lean event.
After an emotional opening video thanking the China team for their amazing efforts in 2018, the most successful year for DB Schenker globally and in China, Greater China CEO Chris Pollard delivered an inspiring opening speech.
Besides sincere appreciation for the team’s hard work, he pointed out the importance of the newly formed Greater China Cluster for the way forward in China’s highly dynamic market. As one organization, DB Schenker will further strengthen its position as customer and market centric organization. By strongly focusing on digitalization and local market needs DB Schenker will become smarter and more agile serving its customers in China with optimized and aligned structures. By taking our customers further, being one team with one goal and to keeping an open-mind we will embrace the numerous opportunities this market creates!
The attendance of the entire DB Schenker’s Greater China Management team embodied the successful journey of becoming one Greater China Organization with its symbolic home in Shanghai.
