Global multimodal logistics operator, DB Schenker, has joined the IRU, the International Road Transport Union, as its newest corporate member.

With this, DB Schenker aims to collaborate closely with the broader road transport sector on a range of issues and opportunities, including decarbonization, digitalization, and the industry’s image and ability to attract and retain workers.

Joining the IRU is important for us to engage better within the road transport sector and beyond. Working with the IRU and its members will notably help us continue decarbonizing our operations, with our sub-contractors and partners, sharing knowledge and experiences with the wider industry.
