Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has opened a new warehouse in Strykow, Poland, effectively doubling its handling capacity in what the company describes as a strategically critical location. As one of a total of 21 branches in Poland, the Hellmann site located in the centre of Poland has steadily grown in recent years. Hellmann states that by moving into the new warehouse, which covers an area of around 6,000 sq m, it is responding to increased demand, particularly in the area of international road transport, setting the course for the further strategic development of its activities in Poland and the entire European region.
Hellmann has primarily been offering national and international full and groupage transports at the Strykow location for the past 14 years but is also active in the areas of customs solutions as well as sea and air freight. Due to its strategically favourable location at the intersection of the A1 and A2 freeways and the operation of a night transhipment terminal, the Strykow branch is said to play a crucial role in Hellmann Poland’s logistics operations. In particular, the new location is expected to play a pivotal role in business expansion with potential new customers as well as existing customers from the beverage, electrical and chemical sectors in the coming years.
“The Polish market is of great strategic importance to us and the investment in the new site in Strykow is a central component of our growth strategy in Western and Eastern Europe. With the expansion of capacities, we are creating the prerequisites for offering first-class service quality and growing further.” says Joerg Herwig, Chief Operating Officer Road & Rail, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
