Dachser to build new facility in Rochdale

The family-owned DACHSER is investing some €25m in the construction of a new logistics location in Kassel, Germany.

Dachser is planning to build a 5,175 sq m logistics centre in Rochdale, UK, to replace its current distribution facility. The development of the 3.7 ha site will cost £14.4m.

According to Mark Rollinson, Managing Director Dachser UK, the new logistics centre is evidence of how Dachser has grown in the UK in tandem with its customers.

The new distribution facility will be located on the Kingsway Business Park adjacent to the Trans-Pennine motorway, the M62 at junction 21. The new facility will have 49 dock loading doors and an additional four level access doors. There will be an internal area of nearly 7,000 sq m, including office space.

“The Rochdale Logistics Centre is connected to the global Dachser network with daily direct freight services,” explained Gary Atkinson, Branch Manager Dachser Rochdale. “With this new construction, our location in the North of England is evolving into an important hub within Dachser’s European network. Ensuring that the new facility remained within Rochdale was an important consideration in the interests of the company’s workforce; the location is also optimally situated from a logistics viewpoint on an important artery of the UK’s ‘Northern Powerhouse.” he continued.
