Sport & Events

Our logistics experts at DB SCHENKERsportsevents specialize in major sports events - developing logistics solutions for organizers, hospitality programs, sponsors, suppliers and media well in advance.

This also includes logistics requirements for test events, Olympic torch relays, conferences and exhibitions in relation to the sports industry or other events.

International sporting events have long ceased to be just about the sport itself. We recognize that organizing major sport events demands detailed planning to ensure the services to meet the criteria of the respective Organizing Committee and its customers. 

When developing and implementing logistics concepts, the project planners at DB SCHENKERsportsevents not only provide the required land, air and ocean transport services, but also coordinate warehouse and venue logistics. This includes implementing security systems and complex customs formalities, order picking/packing activities, and providing just-in-time deliveries to venues. Thanks to DB Schenker’s global network, our logistics solutions have no boundaries.

DB SCHENKERsportsevents provides logistics services for:

  • Numerous National Olympic Committees (NOCs)
  • International and national sports federations
  • Organizing committees of international sporting events
  • Companies in sport sponsoring
  • TV and media
  • Event agencies
  • Suppliers and outfitters of international sporting events, for instance in the domains of hospitality, merchandising and media centers


Events – whether it is a varied marquee entertainment program, a festival, a corporate event or a global promotion tour – are becoming more and more important in the world of business today.

DB Schenker's handling of events is second to none. Events can be held at any conceivable venue, from a show truck to a circus tent, or from a trade fair hall to a container village. The sheer variety of event concepts is matched by the logistics requirements associated with them. Whatever the size or nature of your event, we can help with everything from project planning and implementation through to on-site handling and (logistics) coordination.

Our logistics services for events include:

  • Project planning and execution
  • Personal service and professional advice
  • Freight forwarding (including sea, air, road and rail) and logistics
  • Monitoring of freight movements
  • On-site handling and coordination
  • Customs and quarantine clearances, as well as arranging of special permits for medical items, road trailers, etc.


While the musicians are still on stage, our logistics specialists are already working at full speed behind the scenes - dismantling, packing, loading, documenting, transporting and preparing items for customs clearance.

With care and precision, the logistics experts at DB SCHENKERconcerts plan the transport concepts for each event. The tight schedules of an orchestra engagement or tour constitute a particular challenge. In order to ensure that all logistics activities run smoothly, they are planned and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by experienced DB Schenker project managers. And everything is in its place again on time for the next engagement.

As well as implementing logistics solutions in the freight area – which can include anything from stage decor and equipment to valuable instruments – DB Schenker takes care of passenger logistics as part of its air charter activities. Finally, DB Schenker’s worldwide network allows extensive transport solutions such as these to be implemented.
