Schenker AG Key Developments

MAN Truck & Bus and DB Schenker Signs Cooperation for Networked and Autonomous Driving at Transport Logistic

MAN Truck & Bus and DB Schenker signed the cooperation for networked and autonomous driving at transport logistic. High-tech trucks on the highway: the new project by DB Schenker and MAN is the first time that a logistics company and a vehicle manufacturer have cooperated to develop networked truck convoys for use in the logistics business. The two companies signed a cooperation agreement on this technology, also known as platooning, at the transport logistic in Munich today. For the first time, truck platoons will be tested for several months in an authentic road traffic environment as part of DB Schenkers regular business operations. Another first is that instead of test drivers at the wheel, the vehicles will be steered by professional truck drivers. During the test phase, which will begin in spring 2018, DB Schenker and MAN will operate platoons on the Digital Motorway Test Field on the A 9 motorway between the DB Schenker branches in Munich and Nuremberg. Each platoon will consist of two trucks. To begin with, the trucks will run without a load, so that the driving conditions can be tested in ordinary traffic situations and the drivers trained in how to operate the vehicles. This will also give them the chance to learn the special driving techniques. This will be followed by weekly and later daily test runs. During the course of 2018, the tests will move on to regular trips carrying real freight, with the platoons running between the DB Schenker logistics centres in Munich and Nuremberg up to three times a day.

Deutsche Bahn Plans For Partial Privatization of Arriva and Schenker

Deutsche Bahn AG seeks to partially privatize Schenker AG and Arriva plc due to Britain's decision to exit the European Union, its Chief Executive said. Deutsche Bahn's management will tell the company's supervisory board at a meeting on December 14, 2016, "We cannot recommend a stock market flotation based on the current assessments," German news agency DPA quoted Ruediger Grube. German daily Handelsblatt reported in September that Deutsche Bahn was dropping its plans for an initial public offering, citing a supervisory board member. Deutsche Bahn had planned to float up to 45 percent of Arriva, as well as part of its logistics unit Schenker.
