DHL is the official logistics partner of the world-famous Gewandhausorchester since 2009. The collaboration with the Leipzig-based orchestra initially began in 2005. Today, the partnership includes the logistic planning of the orchestra's tours and the safe transport of sensitive musical instruments.

The Gewandhausorchester has a history stretching back more than 250 years, and has performed with some of the greatest musicians of any era, including Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Wagner. Its distinguished reputation and astounding spectrum of expressive capability have made the orchestra one of the finest on the planet.

The world-famous Gewandhausorchester likes to travel. In the last century, the Leipzig-based musicians have played more than 2000 concerts outside their home town - 2115 to be precise. Playing on stages around the world will continue to play an important part when designated Gewandhauskapellmeister Andris Nelsons will take over the reins in spring 2018. The Latvian-born conductor plans to perform with the orchestra across the globe.

With touring schedules encompassing performances in Europe, Asia, and the US, the importance of safely transporting the instruments and equipment cannot be underestimated. Whether it be via temperature controlled transport or a tight turnaround, DHL is always on hand to make sure the ensemble musicians hit every high note, even while thousands of miles from home.
