Joining Forces to Deliver Priority Shipments of Anti-COVID Disinfectants

DB Schenker distributes Anti-COVID priority shipments of disinfectants, offering free delivery directly to healthcare facilities, doctors, dentists, retirement homes and social services

For DB Schenker’s Czech Republic division, transporting the products that clinics and hospitals need to disinfect against COVID-19 has become a top priority. Working with long-time business associate DF Partner, DB Schenker has delivered priority shipments of disinfectants free of charge to doctors, dentists, and other private practices. “From disinfectants to surgical equipment, these are the types of shipments that have the highest priority for us these days" says Tomáš Holomoucký, CEO DB Schenker in Czech Republic.

We know that medical staff are waiting for these goods, so we are delivering them quickly, with joy and for free. It is our little contribution in this crisis.

As an official anti-COVID disinfectant manufacturer, DF Partners uses a World Health Organization (WHO) recipe that includes ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, glycerol, and water.

The company rebuilt its production lines within a few days and now accounts for about three-quarters of The Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic’s disinfectant volume.

For DF Partner — which is responsible for the distribution of its disinfectant products — DB Schenker provides free delivery directly to healthcare facilities, doctors, dentists, retirement homes and social services providers throughout the country. Ranging in size from 500 milliliters to 25 liters, the products make up shipments that can weigh up to 150 kilograms.
