Borrowing a page from the manufacturer’s European operations, the logistics provider came up with a way to organize the transportation via waterway. That plan would include a fully-refurbished dock and pier, and a new hangar.
“We designed the solution and organized the project,” says Largeau, who adds that DB Schenker coordinated with local authorities, service providers, and Airbus itself to bring the multifaceted project to fruition. “This project, which involved multiple divisions across DB Schenker, is a tribute to the entrepreneurial nature of our organization,” says Michael L. Schoenfeld, Senior Vice President and Head of Contract Logistics for DB Schenker USA.
“We were presented with a business problem and we funneled pockets of expertise across multiple divisions of our organization and found a way to a better solution,” Schoenfeld continues. “We didn't let any internal or external barriers stand in the way, which shows how we can link various elements together while also providing new ideas and innovations to the equation.”
