With the new extension, the DACHSER logistics centre (European Logistics) in Bremen now boasts a total of 12,000 sq m of transit terminal space. The terminal features 132 gates—30 of them new—for the loading and unloading of trucks. The logistics centre now has a total area of just under 74,000 sq m. “We moved into the new site at the freight transport center about six years ago. But now the time had come to create more space to accommodate the growing volume of shipments in Bremen,” says Michael Schrader, General Manager European Logistics at DACHSER in Bremen.
Investments include preparations for the use of electric vehicles. Eight charge spots for electric cars and four charge spots for electric trucks have been newly installed. An additional control center has also been created to assist drivers. The DACHSER branch in the freight transport center currently employs close to 200 people.
Bremen is an important node in the DACHSER network. The logistics provider employs more than 350 people at different locations across the city in domains such as industrial and consumer goods and food as well as in offices handling air and sea freight. This location is classed as a container freight station in the DACHSER transport network. It caters to the processes involved in sea freight transportation by eliminating the often considerable transit and transshipment times that occur at other large, busy ports.
