Leading the way since 1872
WAGBA is thrilled to share the joy with one of our oldest members, the German-headquartered company DB Schenker, as it marks its 150th corporate anniversary globally and 60 years in Australia in 2022. To celebrate DB Schenker as one of the world's leading logistics service providers and supply chain management, this anniversary year will include a multitude of internal and external festivities to underline DB Schenker's vision of advancing businesses and lives by shaping the way the world connects.
Under the claim “150 Years Elevating Lives”, the anniversary year will highlight an internal employee competition, connecting all colleagues across countries and even continents. With the help of a dedicated smartphone app, employees can count their steps and track further physical and mental activities.
As part of its innovative and sustainable identity legacy, as established by founder Gottfried Schenker in 1872, DB Schenker will donate to carefully selected charitable organizations that relate to the company’s commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The charity projects include ocean, land and air protection, and other social initiatives. In quarter three, DB Schenker supported Ocean Conservancy’s work toward a clean, healthy ocean, including efforts to ensure the ocean is free of trash and pollution, protect fragile ecosystems like the Arctic and Florida, advance sustainable climate solutions and reduce overfishing while preserving fish populations.
