    Options of direct freight

    • We handle all formalities for you so that you can concentrate on your business. We will handle customs clearance provided that all documents, certificates, and information required for customs clearance are available from you.

    • Time window pick-up / delivery: 
      We pick-up and/or deliver either in the morning (9 am to noon) or afternoon (1 pm to 4 pm). Fast, convenient, and 100% reliable. You define the time slot for pick-up / delivery.

      Fix day pick-up / delivery: 
      There is also a Fix day pick-up and/or delivery where you can specify the pick-up and delivery date. 

    • Pre-notice: We inform the sender and/or recipient regarding the day the shipment will be collected and/or delivered (telephone or e-mail; provision of contact details assumed).

      Proof of Delivery (POD): Provision of the original proof of delivery, in original or scan, depending on the given customer agreement.

    • Our expedition insurance provides maximum protection for your direct freight shipment from pick-up to delivery. For more security and peace of mind. It is your protection against all risks of physical loss or damage to goods due to external causes during transport – subject to the agreement of the AXA XL insurer.

    • Due to the risk for people and the environment, dangerous cargo cannot be treated like general cargo. It requires special handling and the workforce involved needs additional qualifications. Whichever of the land transport product portfolio (cross-border) you choose, you may always ask for special agreements from the respective branch office.

      With DB SCHENKER part load and DB SCHENKER full load there are no general restrictions in place. In any case, customers may always ask their responsible branch office for special agreements.
