The Gewandhausorchester (Leipzig, Germany) is among the world’s oldest and most prestigious orchestras. How many ensembles can say they’ve premiered works by Mozart, Brahms, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Schubert and Wagner? It is also the world’s largest traveling orchestra. Some 185 Gewandhausorchester musicians spend a third of their year performing at concert halls around the globe, and DHL is with them every step of the way, keeping the storied ensemble on tempo throughout its impressive touring schedule.
It’s no accident that the two companies have joined forces. Leipzig is not only the Gewandhausorchester’s home base, but also the site of DHL’s major European hub. And both are committed to the same hard work and precision behind the scenes that makes the performance – and customer experience – seem effortless.
As Official Logistics Partner of the Gewandhausorchester since 2009, we ensure secure and on-time transport of 6 tons vital equipment to each concert venue, including customs clearance formalities and temperature-controlled transport of priceless musical instruments. Beyond logistics, we collaborate with the Gewandhausorchester on our special “Meet the Artist” events to bring insight and inspiration to young musicians around the world.
