Start-up Management

A strong network paired with the freshest ideas: Smartways engages in fruitful collaborations with innovative start-up businesses.

Best ideas do not always necessarily come from internal sources – with our global logistics network and open innovation approach, we embrace collaborations with dynamic start-ups across the planet – to challenge what we already have in practice at Smartways and revolutionize business models. As identifiers of market niches, start-ups tailor individual services and quickly bring them to market, filling market gaps with innovative solutions. Instead of competing, we want to create valuable synergies beneficial for both Smartways and creative start-ups. By teaming up with us, start-ups can widen their logistics network and benefit from the expertise of Smartways and the Deutsche Bahn group.
