Logistics Best Practices During Adverse Weather Conditions
To help avoid delays, we encourage you to contact your recipients to verify whether their location is open or able to receive deliveries before and after the storm. In the event of evacuations, shipments not delivered before the storm will be secured in one of our facilities. Delivery will be attempted when it is safe to do so.
In the event that you can not contact your local DB Schenker office due to communication problems, please reach out during business hours (5am PST to 5pm PST) to:
