Dachser is expanding its logistics center in Erfurt, Germany, and adding 3,200 sq m of transit terminal space to its stock warehouse in the nearby Thörey commercial zone. Dachser now has 6,100 sq m of floor space available for industrial goods and a total of about 3,300 sq m for food. Operations at the new addition began on schedule at the start of September.
Adding space to the transit terminal creates 49 extra gates for loading and unloading trucks. “The expansion allows us to make procedures and processes for handling cargo even more efficient,” says Dr. Rimbert J. Kelber, General Manager of Dachser’s Erfurt logistics center.
“By investing in the future of this location, we’re ensuring that at all times, we’ll be able to provide our customers in the region with logistics services of the high quality they are used to,” added to Alexander Tonn, COO Road Logistics.
The expansion of the warehouse has created ten new jobs at the location. In summer 2022, Dachser is also planning to add new offices, complete with sanitation and storage space, as well as a break room with a total area of 640 sq m for the location’s employees.
Dachser opened its first location in the German state of Thuringia in 2004 and provides logistics services for customers from the industrial and food sectors. Last year, Dachser invested in this location by adding a 20,000 sq m warehouse with office space to the logistics centre.
