    DB Schenker invests in all-new Manchester facility

    Purchases new 2.3 acre site at Trafford Park • Opening later this year • Will cater to air, ocean, land and contract logistics operations

    London Heathrow, UK, September 19th, 2023 - DB Schenker is showing its ongoing commitment to the Greater Manchester area with the purchase of a new site and a purpose-built development which will triple the size of its existing offering in the region.  Manchester represents the largest city region economy outside London and the 2.3 acre site at Trafford Park will provide almost 50,000 square feet of warehousing and 7,500 sq. ft of high quality office accommodation for local staff.

    The new site will enable DB Schenker to continue providing essential logistics services to existing and new customers, promoting the city’s growth and development and to cater for its own expansion in air, ocean, land and contract logistics across the region. Relocation of employees is planned for the autumn. 

    Once established at its EPC A-rated Trafford Park facility, DB Schenker aims to actively recruit across a variety of roles from sales to warehouse operatives.  The move will also mean it can continue to support an apprenticeship program in the UK which has flourished for the last two decades, developing and cultivating local talent.

    Says DB Schenker’s Adrian Jennings, Ocean Director UK & IE: "Our intention with the opening of our new facility in this important part of the country is to continue to invest in infrastructure and people.  Our operational model is constantly evolving and we clearly intend this facility in Manchester to be part of our future.  We shall look to strengthen our team further with top quality talent."

    The new facility will have various features to support DB Schenker's operations and employee needs. It will contain an X-ray machine for screening air freight and designated zones for consolidating shipments across all transport modes.

    In line with DB Schenker’s environmental and sustainability commitments, the new Manchester site will see 50% of its roof area covered by solar panels and at ground level there will be a series of electric charging points to cater to both the company’s electric trucks and staff vehicles.

    Employee wellness will be emphasised with a treadmill, gym equipment, and a pool table. There will be a quiet space for meditation, mindfulness, and reading. Other amenities in place are standing desks, an outdoor staff amenity area, fresh fruit, showers, and TVs in community areas.
    The facility is designed to enable workflow while also promoting health, morale, and collaboration. Different floors are tailored to DB Schenker's air, ocean, and land groups. The variety of amenities aim to support productivity, comfort, and work-life balance.
