    Welcome to DB SCHENKER STARTup terminal – nice to see you here and thank you for showing interest into our work. We are the team that translates business needs into clear strategic fields for operation and startup scouting, we are the ones to match your startup solution with the right contact person in the business and functional units. Together we find relevant use-cases in the organization and define and align KPIs for the pilot phase, celebrate successes, change, sweat and walk the extra mile where it is needed. We are the ones pushing the startup solutions in the organization and help you grow, pivot and excel your growth journey.

    Why terminal? Well, quite literal, we do have a lot of terminals, and at the end of the day, a terminal at its core has the function to inbound a delivery, reorganize it and then bring it to the right outbound gate. That pretty much sums it up what we are doing with you as a startup. In the logo you perhaps find a hint towards a package, pallet, box, container, - at least we do – and the little dot – that is you, the startup.
