What should you mention in your e-mail
The following information must be specified:

• CMR / AWB / B/L
• Commercial invoice
• Delivery receipt
• Place and date of the incident
• What is involved; damage, loss or theft

Handling the claim
The speed of handling the claim is related to its complexity. We strive to settle claims as quickly as possible. Most claims are processed within 15 working days after notification.
DB Schenker has access to all relevant information and communicates directly with the insurer. Claims can therefore be handled quickly and effectively.
