DACHSER has opened a new warehouse in Rottenburg am Neckar, in addition to its existing warehouse space. As a result, the location in the Ergenzingen-Ost industrial estate is increasing its warehousing capacity to a total of around 46,000 pallet spaces. Construction work on the new facility had begun in February of this year.
The newly built warehouse has 11,600 sq m of storage space and more than 18,000 pallet spaces. The new facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Part of the building can be cooled to meet the needs of the food and pharmaceutical industries. A photovoltaic system might be installed on the roof. DACHSER might use the electricity generated from this in Rottenburg am Neckar to operate the newly built warehouse, among other things.
“The fact that the pallet spaces in the new warehouse were fully marketed even before the start of operations clearly shows the need for additional warehousing capacity. We are particularly pleased to be able to further expand our cooperation with customers with whom we have enjoyed a long-standing and trusting partnership and to offer them an extended scope of services,” said Marco Geiger, DACHSER’s branch manager in Rottenburg, at the opening of the warehouse last Wednesday. “At the same time, we are pleased to have also acquired new customers who fit ideally into our strategic orientation. The addition of the new warehouse is an important step in the development of DACHSER Rottenburg,” Geiger continues.
