How DB Schenker Rail Automotive manages delivery chains
The supply chain reflects the requirements of different companies, people and ideas. Each one is part of the bigger picture. Each one acts for a common goal: to contribute to a project’s overall success with their performance. In the delivery chain which DB Schenker Rail Automotive has managed for a world-famous automobile manufacturer since 2008 this is the point: Making partners out of people who think and act differently and who live in their own system world.
