Our Standards

DB Schenker has implemented a holistic Compliance Management System for ensuring ethical conduct and for acting as a fair and reliable partner for our customers.
Our DB Code of Conduct provides guidance and an internal framework for all DB employees and executives, across all business transactions and customer contacts. Our internal regulations define conduct for the following situations:

Benefits – Give and Take

DB Schenker believes in transparency. To achieve this, we have guidelines on how to deal with benefits from third parties or gratuities from the company itself.

Protecting assets

We have a clear guideline for the protection of DB Group’s assets and the confidential treatment of business and trade data.

Cartel law / Price fixing

Our information and guidance on cartel law and fixed pricing permits us to avoid anticompetitive regulations, price fixing and offers that restraint trade.

Agents, brokers, consultants

We follow internal rules and guidance when it comes to both cooperation and selection.

Conflicts of interest

Our guidelines on how to avoid conflicts of interests – between the professional duties and private interests of employees or employers – allow DB Schenker to always act with integrity.

For a detailed view, please refer to our Compliance Guidelines
