Short-term warehousing for DB Schenker costumers
Short-term Warehousing

Keep your business moving with short-term warehousing

We have taken up the challenge of meeting customer demand for additional short-term storage by going beyond our normal capacity. By implementing a digital platform, we are able to access and locate available storage space, updated daily, at each of our 850 locations in 60 countries with a total warehouse space of more than 8,750,000 m².

The Coronavirus pandemic has hit global supply chains with full force. Due to changing consumer behavior, stranded shipping containers are piling up in seaports with goods that can no longer be sold due to changing consumer behavior. In addition, growing consumer demand for certain goods, for example in the food or health sector, has led to an increase in production.

This has two consequences: Currently unsaleable items need to be stored temporarily and companies are having to build up safety stocks to avoid interruptions in supply.

How are we helping our customers in this situation?

  • #SpeedUpYourSpace
  • Get short term support for C-19 shortage 
  • Expand space for existing operations
  • Speed up your demand 
  • Get interim solutions for seasonal business
  • Reliable Services
  • Planning certainty in unstable/agile market situation
  • Protect customers from service impacts

Square meters normally used for dedicated customers, for example to cope with market fluctuations, are now transformed into temporary space opportunities — to support companies that urgently need additional capacity.

Are you facing this challenge and urgently in need of storage space for your goods? Please reach out to our worldwide sales team for more information.
