“In a world of services people are what create added value”
D.B. Group was founded in 1980 in the North-East of Italy, more precisely in the sport-system district, and from that moment onwards it became the partner in integrated logistics and supply chain management for a large number of clients. Although lifestyle remains our focus, we have widened the set of sectors that we design and provide services for. The constant growth that we have undergone wouldn’t have been possible without our thriving network. Today our offices are located in 20 countries, with the objective of being the one-stop solution partner for our customers and ensuring them the same level of accuracy and efficiency globally.
D.B. Group has changed greatly over the years with an international extension of the range of services provided and new markets entered. Our vision is always the same: we stay focused on creating a sense of partnership, based on the idea that our work is not just about forwarding and logistics. It has something to do with engendering among our clients the awareness that, with us, they are sharing their know-how with the world in the best possible way. We are always keen to seek new ways of achieving goals: by keeping hold of the essential meaning of our work, we will keep creating innovative solutions for our clients’ needs.
The sense of partnership
Partnership is something extremely valuable to D.B. Group. With our clients and providers we set long-term relationships based on the belief that, as a team, we can build a better, more sustainable and positive future. That is why, when working with us, you will rarely hear us refer to “Customer” and “Provider”. We are your Global Forwarding Partner.
D.B. Group China - Shanghai
In 2004 we opened the first office in Hong Kong, establishing D.B. Group China. At first, our business was focused on helping our western customers in approaching the Far East market, which was in many cases their first supplier. However, having the opportunity to build strong relationships with our Chinese partners, we quickly infer the extreme potential of China and its people and their future role in the global economic scenario. For this reason, during the following years we decided to build a capillary network of offices in the country that could help both European and Chinese customers to easily connect and to reach new lands of opportunities.
Today we are a Chinese reality with an Italian heart/heritage and we operate as a 360° consultant on international freight forwarding, logistics and customs consultancy subjects focusing on treating commodities that are part of lifestyle sector furniture, home décor, fashion, accessories, shoes, eyewear, design, food & beverage. We work as a partner for our customers, studying and providing customized solutions for their needs, connecting all the elements in our hands in order to help them moving their innovation worldwide.
Our international team is what makes the difference. We work close to one another constantly pushing on improving our best-practices to provide faster and better answers to our customers and building specific expertise to transform their needs in opportunities to expand their businesses.
We exploit our origins to co-create valuable solutions that link buyers and suppliers. We put our effort and dedication on every project, to be the one-stop solution provider and to build strong, long-lasting relationships ensuring the same level of quality, precision and knowledge worldwide.
