At a local level, DB Schenker in Australia will be celebrating 50 years since commencing its operations back in 1962.

Our mode neutral solutions include freight management through air, ocean, warehousing, ground transport, inventory and network optimisation, cross docking, value additions, and origin consolidation -- and these are only some examples of our full line capabilities. We intrinsically work with our customers' supply chain requirements from an objective point of view, drilling down to the ner details, looking for opportunities that enable us to recommend cost-effective and customer- focused alternatives, and that can manage their entire SCM process. This enables our customers to then focus on growing their core business in existing and emerging markets. Along with our valued customers, a signi cant part of our success has also been made possible through the strong commitment and dedication of more than 1000 employees Australia- wide. In recognising this ongoing commitment from our team, DB Schenker is very focused on employee skills and development programs that support our team members' individual growth within the logistics industry. As a company, we have invested substantially in major training and development of our staff in 2011 and will continue to do so. This was acknowledged with the visit from Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, in May 2011 in recognition of our commitment to nationally recognised training within our industry. This was further acknowledged by CILTA National Transport and Logistics Industry with the Excellence Award for Professional Development in 2011 in training, education, formal accreditation, processes and mentoring, which directly assists the industry. We are very proud of where we are today and our achievements to date, however, we are very excited to charter the new beginnings of our future success for the next 50 years in Australia.
