Cruise Logistics

At DB Schenker we appreciate that properly supplying a modern cruise ship is a moving target.

The target is limited as to where it can receive orders, restricted to size, weight, and shape of the cargo, and requires a precision in timing unlike no others, all with few options to on-forward to new destinations. Late or incorrect deliveries have a dramatic effect on the cruise experience for the guest, and certainly the profitability of the cruise line.

We don’t just move your goods; we support your turnaround.

Our Cruise Line Logistics team understands the rigors of turnaround day, and all the things that must happen for those – and all Cruise Logistics – to run flawlessly. We support your supply chain with a broad range of customized, scalable, and flexible solutions that we can integrate seamlessly into your business model, no matter how complex. This includes everything from inbound and supply management, to the distribution of finished goods, to the support of landings, dry docks, and new builds.

With our vast array of resources, DB Schenker is the expert in delivering solutions to meet the unique supply challenges of the ever-evolving cruise line industry.
