DB Schenker in Poland strengthens the ocean solution package ● A new consolidation warehouse in Sosnowiec and four new groupage lines from China ● Better and more competitive offer for customers located in southern Poland
Seeking to be closer to customers located in southern Poland, within Lower and Upper Silesia as well as Lesser Poland, DB Schenker opened the CFS (Container Freight Station) warehouse in Sosnowiec, which will provide consolidation and deconsolidation of groupage containers. The logistic operator launched 4 ocean lines from Chinese ports in Shanghai, Ningbo, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Customers’ consignments will be transported to Sosnowiec in full upon entering the port in Gdańsk, and after being transfigured they will reach the final consignees.
“The operation will facilitate the process of planning door to door deliveries and also reduce their cost. The distance in the last section will decrease from more than 600 km from Polish ports to less than 100 km," explains Justyna Jaśkiewicz, Head of LCL Cluster Poland and North East Europe in DB Schenker. “Containers from the largest port in the world in Shanghai arrive in Gdańsk after about 37 days. Upon unloading the vessel within two working days, they reach the consolidation warehouse in Sosnowiec”, she adds.
The solution for container groupage is recommended to companies which, in the current situation caused by the coronavirus, have reduced their orders and do not fill up the entire container. "In this case, the customer pays for the sea freight service in proportion to the size of the consignment," explains Justyna Jaśkiewicz.
