Mobility, trans­porta­tion and logis­tics are the drivers of the global economy - and a true commu­ni­ca­tions chal­lenge. The growth of traffic between coun­tries, major urban centers and economic zones requires space and resources - and both are intensely fought-over.

Mobility issues are among the core compe­tences of Oliver Schrott Kommu­nika­tion. Alongside inten­sive involve­ment with the auto­mo­bile and indi­vidual mobility, we have also worked for many years for the railway industry, having devel­oped PR, corpo­rate and B2B campaigns for new rail systems on behalf of ABB and Adtranz (now Bombardier Trans­porta­tion) - from the intro­duc­tion of the dual-system urban railway in Karl­sruhe, to export support for the Swedish X2000 tilting train.

We have also demon­strated our exper­tise in rail­ways, trans­porta­tion and logis­tics on the tracks, with the design, construc­tion and oper­a­tion of a complete train. Consisting of 14 wagons and measuring 280 meters, it remains, to date, the longest exhi­bi­tion train ever. Between 1999 and 2000 it trav­eled through Europe as a the “Opel Millen­nium Express” and, from 2002 until 2004 as the “Siemens exider” rolling exhi­bi­tion stand, it became the first train in railway history to travel all the way around the world, complete with ship and air trans­porta­tion. And, for the complex logis­tics surrounding the Mercedes-Benz long-distance drive from Paris to Beijing, in 2007 we became the first commu­ni­ca­tions agency ever to receive the “Logis­tics Service Award” from the German Logis­tics Asso­ci­a­tion.
