DB Schenker has become a Foundation Partner of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, a commercial, logistics, and education hub that is being developed in the vicinity of the new Western Sydney Airport. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was recently signed in Berlin by Gladys Berejiklian, Premier of the State of New South Wales, and Alexander Doll, Member of the Board of Management for Finance, Freight Transport and Logistics Deutsche Bahn AG and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of DB Schenker.

DB Schenker says that they are committed to potential future cooperation in a number of fields, for example in the planning of a digitally-enabled freight and logistics supply system, a cutting-edge cold-storage logistics hub, or logistics for the aerospace and defense sectors.

Alexander Doll said: “The Aerotropolis is set to become a pioneering project on our path to building smart cities with integrated transportation concepts and sustainable logistics solutions. It is our pleasure to support the development, which will further strengthen DB Schenker’s engagement in the Asia-Pacific region, that has been so successful over the past decades.”

DB Schenker’s subsidiary in Australia was established in 1962 and provides a complete range of international air and sea freight forwarding services, together with integrated logistics solutions. In signing the MoU, DB Schenker intends to work cooperatively together with the Western City and Aerotropolis Authority (WCAA) to promote the development of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.

The WCAA was jointly established by the New South Wales (NSW) and Australian Governments to facilitate the design and delivery of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis and support the growth of the Western Parkland City. Premier Gladys Berejiklian said: “The Western City and Aerotropolis Authority will work with DB Schenker to explore the best freight and logistics technologies for adoption in and around the Aerotropolis.”

Ditlev Blicher, DB Schenker’s Asia Pacific Region (APAC) CEO, said: “For more than 57 years, DB Schenker has been supporting trade and helping businesses grow with our cutting-edge logistics network in Australia and around the world. Today, we are delighted to join in this unique effort of building the Western Sydney Aerotropolis for the benefit of the enterprises and the residents of New South Wales.” DB Schenker is the only forwarder to sign an MoU with the WCAA.
