Development of business units
- Together with other major investors, DB Schenker is participating in Volocopter, a pioneer in urban air mobility. The development of the VoloDrone heavy-duty drone is intended to help meet customer demand for fast, emissions-neutral deliveries even in hard-to-reach locations.
- Together with the City of Helsinki and other partners, DB Schenker has opened a new parcels distribution center in the center of Helsinki on the Baana bicycle corridor. The distribution center will collect information on the delivery of parcels by bike, particularly for Europe-wide use, based on its operations between June and the end of 2020. The main vehicles for delivery are electric bikes. The pilot project is part of an international, EU-funded cooperation, coordinated by the Fraunhofer Society and funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
