The article reports that Stinnes, a German logistics group, will disappear in Deutsche Bahn's (DB) new management structure. The former state-owned rail monopoly will keep Schenker, but will drop the renowned Stinnes brand, Schenker's previous parent. Under the new management structure, rail freight will come under the Railion brand, while combined transport becomes an independent business under the name Intermodal, focusing on seaport-to-hinterland operations and on the main continental axes.
