Located in southern Germany, Augsburg is a very relevant logistics location and DB Schenker has underlined its prominent presence. In the highly frequented Freight Transport Center in Augsburg, the importance of this hub for international freight traffic will continue to increase as the planned container transhipment station is put into operation.
DB Schenker has been involved in expanding this attractive location for more than ten years with growing logistics services. In October 2019, we celebrated the opening of our newest logistics center. A 38,000 square meters of logistics space serving our customers KUKA, an international automation group, and MediaShop, the market leader in German-speaking markets for online and teleshopping. The design and equipment of the new halls are at its finest: an above-average 7.5 t floor loading capacity offers limitless options for usage. High-tech burglary alarm system and access control system ensure maximum security. And the full illumination with wireless network and redundant fiber optic connection ensure the optimal infrastructure digitization.
On the occasion of the opening ceremony, representatives in local politics, project developer and investor Goodmann, customers KUKA and MediaShop and, of course, DB Schenker, looked back on a very cooperative development and commissioning phase and ahead to a prosperous future together at the location.
"The growing involvement of DB Schenker at the Augsburg location represents an extremely successful win-win situation for the region and all companies involved."
- Karl-Heinz Emberger, CEO of Schenker Deutschland AG
