DB Schenker moves 10 million masks, medical supplies across the globe
DB Schenker has delivered over 10 million masks and other relief medical supplies to many countries. In the past week, the DB Schenker team has successfully completed several cross-border transportations through air transport and the new fast block train solution.
On the China-Norway route, DB Schenker loaded the flight with nearly 37 tonnes of medical supplies including masks and protective clothing, which were commissioned by the Norwegian government from China. In the afternoon of March 27, Norwegian local time, the flight successfully arrived at Oslo Airport.
To compensate for decreasing air capacities, DB Schenker used Lufthansa’s A330 passenger flight to transport 30 tonnes of 2.8 million masks and 12 tonnes of other medical supplies donated by B.Braun China to fly from Shanghai Pudong to Germany. Besides the belly compartment which is generally used for cargo storage, the cabin seat and the luggage rack above the seats were also filled with medical supplies.

On March 25, DB Schenker started a new block train service connecting Xi’an and North & South Europe in record time by rail, in cooperation with Xi’an Landport and DB Cargo Eurasia. This innovative rail solution aims to reach Scandinavia countries and Italy within 12 days and 15 days respectively, cutting the lead time by 5-6 days in comparison with traditional routing via Hamburg/Duisburg hub. This train was fully loaded with daily necessities and solar modules, and also one batch of medical supplies donated by Xi’an Gaoke Group. The new train is routed via Kaliningrad in Russia and further connected by shortsea to Rostock, Germany.
