    It's all about talent.

    Talent is our treasure.

    Our people are the heart of our business and we’re here to support every move they make. We strongly believe that all our internal talents are a real treasure. Their commitment makes us logistic leaders. Their innovative thinking helps us find new solutions. 

    We want to ensure that our people have opportunities to grow and advance their careers throughout their time at DB Schenker. It is our ambition that each employee finds the job, position, and function that is fitting for them. Together we are looking at their passion, skills, viewpoint, and abilities because we know:

    Everyone shapes our business success and the way how we as a team move forward. 

    We support this with a clear and structured approach to talent management and offer a range of programs that help people to realize their goals. No matter where you are or will be in your journey with us, we want you to be able to attain your personal and professional aspirations. 

    We know we have great talents in our company, and with that comes great opportunity. We believe that when individual careers continue to progress, our organization becomes more competitive and sustainable as a whole. 

    These are just some of the talent management initiatives that give people at DB Schenker the chance to take their careers to the next level:

    Mentoring is an essential part of the DB Schenker culture across all levels of our organization – and it is a two-way street. Becoming a mentor helps you to build leadership and communication skills, and as a mentee, you gain valuable advice and insight to navigate your career path as you progress.
