Change of name for UK rail freight company as part of full rebranding across Europe
FROM today [2 March 2016], the UK rail freight business previously known as DB Schenker has officially become DB Cargo UK. The change is part of a full rebranding of DB Schenker Rail business units across Europe – which will all become known as DB Cargo during the course of 2016.
Geoff Spencer, chief executive officer of DB Cargo UK, said: ‘The rebrand will continue to strengthen our presence and further build recognition in the markets in which we operate. We’ll be continuing to build on our growing reputation for delivering a high-quality service to our valued customers, not just domestically but across borders too.
‘The name change has no impact on existing contracts or commercial arrangements. However, over time, you will see the logo on our documentation, buildings and communications change from ‘DB Schenker’ to the familiar ‘DB’ corporate mark. Other than this, it’s business as usual.
‘Since 2007, we’ve been part of the DB Group of companies, which means we are able to offer our customers high-quality rail services not just in the UK, but across Europe. The re-brand we’ve announced today isn’t just about a new name, it represents the further alignment of our brand with the Group.’
