DB Schenker

DB Schenker, a global leader in logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce the successful acquisition of the Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Lithium Batteries Certification for its United States airfreight operations from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). This significant achievement underscores DB Schenker's commitment to setting the standard for safely and efficiently handling lithium battery shipments, a critical component in today’s technology-driven market. John McDonald, EVP of Americas for Airfreight, DB Schenker, said, “The CEIV Lithium Batteries program, crafted by IATA, is an industry-recognized certification that represents a company's ability to meet the stringent guidelines and standards for the logistics of lithium batteries. The certification confirms DB Schenker's proficiency in the safe transport of these items, which are essential for powering a vast array of devices and systems essential to modern life and commerce.” DB Schenker embarked on a rigorous certification journey marked by a series of in-depth training sessions, self-assessments, and meticulous documentation reviews. Barbara England, Sr. Director of Operations for Airfreight, DB Schenker, said, “The process began with comprehensive training, where Air Export Operations personnel and Air Product Management teams completed the IATA Lithium Battery Logistics Safety Management Certification Program. Following this, DB Schenker conducted a thorough self-assessment to ensure alignment with IATA’s exacting standards.” Brendan Sullivan, IATA’s Global Head of Cargo, said, "Congratulations to DB Schenker for achieving CEIV Lithium Batteries Certification for their operations in the United States. This accomplishment underscores the company's unwavering commitment to excellence in logistics within the rapidly growing sector. DB Schenker’s dedication to the safe handling of shipments is something their customers will undoubtedly value. Furthermore, the industry stands to benefit from the quality benchmark that they are helping to establish.” The assessment phase took place at DB Schenker's facility in Franklin Park, IL, where an IATA assessor meticulously evaluated the company's operations, processes, and adherence to the CEIV Lithium Batteries audit checklist. This checklist, featuring over 200-line items, required DB Schenker to demonstrate the highest level of precision and commitment to safety standards. Upon completion of the assessment, the findings underwent a rigorous validation process by IATA, culminating in the certification being awarded on January 29, 2024, with the notable distinction of zero non-conformities – a testament to DB Schenker's diligent preparation and dedication to excellence. The implications of receiving the CEIV Lithium Batteries certification are far-reaching for DB Schenker. This certification is not only a validation of DB Schenker’s unwavering dedication to safety and quality but also positions the company to meet the surging demand for the transportation of lithium battery products. Clients and partners can now have even greater confidence in DB Schenker’s capabilities to handle their shipments with the utmost care and expertise. Looking to the future, DB Schenker views this certification as a cornerstone of its ongoing strategy to expand its specialty in transporting dangerous goods. The company is already planning to extend the CEIV Lithium certification to additional global sites and is confident in pursuing further certifications for other dangerous goods, irrespective of the mode of transport. This certification aligns with DB Schenker's strategic vision to lead the logistics industry in safety, efficiency, and reliability. With the growing reliance on lithium batteries across multiple sectors, DB Schenker is well-prepared to support its customers with the highest level of service. The CEIV Lithium Batteries certification is valid for two years, during which DB Schenker will engage in continuous improvement and compliance to maintain this status. Refresher training for key personnel will be conducted, and new assessments will ensure ongoing adherence to the rigorous standards set forth by IATA. ### About DB Schenker Americas DB Schenker is one of the largest Integrated Logistics Service Providers in the Americas, with more than 10,000 employees in 123 locations providing over 27 million sq. ft. of distribution operations to its clients.

How Blue Nile Keeps Costs Down While Offering Ethical, High-Quality Engagement Rings And Jewelry To Suit All Kinds Of Customers

Benzinga

By Mangeet Kaur Bouns In the ever-evolving landscape of fine jewelry, Blue Nile has emerged as a premier destination for those seeking not only quality and good craftsmanship, but also transparency and ethical sourcing. As the wedding bells ring louder in the post-pandemic world, Blue Nile has positioned itself to cater to the increased demand for engagement rings and fine jewelry. Unwavering Commitment To Quality And Ethical Practices At the heart of Blue Nile's philosophy is a staunch commitment to quality and ethical sourcing. The brand takes pride in its high-quality diamonds and gemstones, which come from suppliers who strictly adhere to ethical and environmental standards. This commitment not only caters to the judicious buyer, but also appeals to those who prioritize sustainability in their purchases. In addition to natural diamonds, the company boasts an impressive collection of lab-grown diamonds. These gems, certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), are chemically and optically identical to their natural counterparts and offer a more affordable, ethical and sustainable alternative without compromising quality or beauty. Empowering Consumers Through Education Blue Nile's strategy extends beyond direct sales – it is a pioneer in consumer education within the jewelry sector. The company's detailed guides on the "Four Cs" of diamonds – cut, color, clarity and carat weight – equip customers with the knowledge to make informed purchasing decisions. This educational approach fosters a transparent relationship with customers, enhancing their confidence and trust, which is crucial in an industry often clouded by complexity. This approach sets Blue Nile apart from its competitors. Revolutionizing Jewelry Shopping With Technology, Convenience And Customization Since being founded in 1999, Blue Nile has been at the forefront of combining technology with traditional jewelry retail. The company’s online platform is designed for optimal user experience, offering detailed product descriptions, high-resolution images and interactive design tools. These features make it easy for customers to find and customize their perfect piece of jewelry from the comfort of their homes. For customers who prefer a more hands-on shopping experience, Blue Nile has also integrated physical showrooms across the U.S. These showrooms complement the online experience, allowing customers to see, touch and feel the jewelry before making a purchase, thus bridging the gap between online and in-store shopping. The brand’s commitment to customer service is also evident in its round-the-clock support offered via phone, live chat and email, ensuring that help is always available. This level of service, provided by non-commissioned experts, is instrumental in ensuring that every customer interaction is personalized and reassuring, making the purchasing process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. The company’s engagement with customers extends beyond direct service channels. Blue Nile actively utilizes social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram to connect with clients – offering updates, engaging content and responsive customer service that caters to the digital habits of modern consumers. Moreover, the company enhances customer satisfaction through a flexible 30-day return or exchange policy, accommodating the needs and preferences of its diverse client base. For those seeking a highly personalized shopping experience, Blue Nile offers scheduled virtual appointments. Customers can engage with personal jewelers in a virtual showroom setting, which features a sophisticated studio equipped with multiple cameras that showcase each jewelry piece from various angles – providing a detailed and interactive viewing experience akin to an in-person consultation. Customization stands at the forefront of Blue Nile's service offerings. The company provides a vast array of customization options, allowing customers to select the ideal diamond, setting and metal type. This flexibility makes it possible to design distinct and meaningful engagement rings or other jewelry pieces that perfectly align with personal tastes. This emphasis on personalized jewelry is a cornerstone of Blue Nile’s mission, reflecting its dedication to helping customers craft not just jewelry but also memories. Competitive Pricing Without Compromise Operating predominantly online, Blue Nile can offer competitive pricing without compromising quality. By minimizing the overhead costs associated with traditional physical outlets, the company is able to offer an extensive range of premium jewelry at more accessible price points. This cost-effective model enhances affordability and broadens its appeal, increasing access to fine jewelry in a way many traditional jewelers may not be able to match. Offering Quality With Convenience In A Resurging Post-COVID Wedding Market The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the wedding industry, leading to widespread postponements and cancellations as global restrictions took hold. During 2020, the earliest phase of the pandemic, the number of weddings in the U.S. plummeted to nearly 1.7 million, marking the lowest figure recorded since 1963. However, as the world has begun to recover and restrictions have eased, the wedding sector is witnessing a rebound. The most recent data from the CDC indicates a notable recovery. Approximately 2.1 million weddings occurred in 2022, surpassing about 2 million registered in 2019 during the pre-pandemic period. The global wedding ring market is poised for growth amid this revival. Straits Research projects this market to reach $132.6 billion by 2032, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.7% from 2024 to 2032. This growth is expected to be driven by the increase in weddings and evolving consumer preferences for unique and custom wedding jewelry. Blue Nile is uniquely positioned to capitalize on this growth and cater to the needs of its customers as the wedding industry continues to flourish post-pandemic.

Apple Rush Company, Inc. (Otcpink:APRU), a leading player in the functional beverage industry, proudly announces it has cleared up final details of brand ownership with Bob Corr and Corr Brands, Inc. Tony Torgerud, CEO of Apple Rush, has negotiated a historical closing on the rights and trademarks of Corr Brands, Inc. In the transaction, Bob Corr has agreed to transfer the rights of the Corr Brands, Inc. trademarks and to forgo any royalties from previous agreements to give Tony and Apple Rush the best opportunity to succeed moving forward.
