DB Schenker is a global logistics provider using land transport, air and ocean freight, contract logistics and supply chain management. It sees its role as helping the world do business, ensuring a seamless flow of goods and allowing supply chains to stay lean. DB Schenker has about 2,000 offices and over 72,000 staff around the world. The business has long-standing links with Deutsche Bahn, and a recent Deutsche Bahn campaign also features DB Schenker. The campaign centers on a video ad in which Ex-Formula 1 World Champion Nico Rosberg is running through a train in search of his seat, passing various obstacles, including an Indian wedding party in full swing. When he gets there, punk legend Iggy Pop is in his seat. As the train moves along, a DB Schenker truck is shown traveling in parallel. DB Schenker is the official logistics partner of the German Olympic team.
