DB Schenker, the German logistics and supply chain management firm, has announced that it will create 100 logistics jobs in Tamworth, in the West Midlands region of England, as its business improved during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A representative of DB Schenker said the company welcomed the opportunity to expand its existing warehouse space at the Tamworth logistics site, in a location that was ideal for the business.

DB Schenker is the logistics division of Deutsche Bahn. The company provides international freight forwarding, land transport and logistics services throughout the UK and globally.
