DACHSER expands its branch near Prague

DACHSER Czech Republic is expanding its branch in Kladno, north west of Prague, by adding a new transhipment hall and administrative offices. The logistics provider is planning an investment of almost €12.6 m. The construction might start in July 2023, with completion expected in mid-2024. The construction of the additional 4,000 sq m hall might be the largest DACHSER terminal for groupage handling in the Czech Republic. 
The new DACHSER Czech Republic location plans on expanding the existing branch in the industrial area of Kladno. The two-story administrative building might have modern offices and recreation rooms in an area of 1,340 sq m. After completion, the transhipment terminal intends to cover 8,000 sq m and be equipped with a total of 74 loading gates. The outdoor logistics areas might also be significantly enlarged. The DACHSER site might offer a total of 18,500 sq m of transhipment area with 90 loading gates and almost 4,500 sq m of administrative space.

Sustainable technologies are being used in the construction in line with the so-called DACHSER Standard, which applies to all of the company’s own buildings throughout Europe. For example, a photovoltaic system might be installed on the roof of the new building, which might supply energy for the operation of the site, the charging of handling vehicles, and e-charging stations for trucks and company vehicles, among other things. 

“The expansion of the Kladno branch meets our needs and those of our customers.  It enables us to handle groupage shipments throughout Europe even faster and more efficiently,” says Jan Pihar, Managing Director of European Logistics DACHSER Czech Republic. “We designed the entire facility as a modern project with future logistics requirements in mind and in line with our sustainability goals.”
