DB Schenker transfers operations from Wrocław to the new larger terminal in Nowa Wieś Wrocławska. This investment will allow to increase the number of shipments handled.
"The modern terminal will allow us not only to handle a larger number of shipments on a timely basis, but also to guarantee even better service to our customers. The new investment supports our strong position in the region.” - says Janusz Górski, CEO North & East Europe at DB Schenker.
Shipments handled in the new location will be able to quickly reach the domestic and international recipients owing to the daily connections between 17 terminals in Poland and connections to the network across Europe.
"DB Schenker manages a network of 420 terminals across Europe, which allows us to use these connections more efficiently and to offer our customers fast and safe international transport.” - adds Janusz Górski.
The DB Schenker investment also means a consistent implementation of the sustainable growth strategy. The modern terminal is located away from housing estates and the city centre. The facility uses solutions that will reduce by half energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions by 230 tons per year, e.g. through the use of solar collectors or a heat recovery system.
The new facility began operations on 8 October 2018. Every day, 110 employees of the terminal and 300 drivers handle 8,000 shipments.
