DB Schenker – a soccer star

[ June 12, 2014   //   ]

DBSchenker is moving a huge amount of technology and team equipment to Brazil for the World Cup on June 12 – around 230 ocean containers and 270 tonnes of air freight. Moreover, nearly halfof the national teams are using the forwarder to transport their equipment to their camp – anything from jerseys to massage tables and training and fitness equipment.

DB Schenker is also responsible for getting all the valuable and highly sensitive equipment such as cameras, outside broadcast vehicles, expensive monitors and special technical equipment to Brazil – most of it by air shortly before the World Cup begins.

Import formalities in Brazil also present a challenge, adds DBS. In some cases import licenses are required for certain products, which must be applied for well in advance.

And while the players will be enjoying a rest after the World Cup is over – some of them earlier than others – the DB Schenker team will be back in action for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in July.
