Clear routines for smooth transportations

Food safety is a concern to all of us. DB Schenker plays an active role in assuring smooth transportations and handling of foodstuff – from the producer to the end consumers.

DB Schenker has defined clear working procedures implemented throughout the land transport network. All foodstuff and related goods such as packaging material need to be tagged with a special label as this is a precondition to ensure food safety.

Integrated part of quality management system

Further elements, among others, are an HACCP system (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) as well as hygienic instructions for staff who gets into contact with food and food related cargo. Food safety is also an integral element of the quality management system of DB Schenker Land Transport.

DB Schenker operates according to the legal requirements regarding foodstuff, especially EU regulation (EC) 852, but also considers national law and regulations.
