DB Schenker, a global provider of transport and logistics services, announces the opening of a new 21,000 sqm terminal for logistics and groupage transport operations in CTPark Bucharest West (CTP) by the end of 2018.
The new terminal, representing an investment of approximately 6,5 million euro, will be a Build-to-Suit unit developed according to CTP’s highest technical standards in what concerns the construction of premium industrial and logistic spaces.
These features that exceed current standards of the market, will place the new DB Schenker terminal in the green buildings category, with the highest energetic efficiency and low energy consumption.
”Taking into account DB Schenker`s development plans for logistics and transportation services, especially road transport, in the Bucharest area and surrounding localities, we decided to relocate our operational activities to a new logistics terminal developed with a strong partner like CTP. This terminal meets, on the one hand, the highest technical and constructive standards in the market as well as all the functional requirements of DB Schenker and, on the other hand, it creates the premises for medium and long-term development at the same location, given the position in a logistic park that is in continuous and accelerated expansion - CTPark Bucharest West" declared Adrian Crizbasianu, COO and Member of the Board, DB Schenker in Romania.
CTPark Bucharest West, a property designed to become the largest logistics and industrial park in Eastern Europe, is strategically placed at west of Bucharest city, at A1 highway, km 23.
