DB Schenker to open new terminal in Finland

DB Schenker Logistics has announced that it will open a new €57m terminal near Helsinki, Finland.

“Combining four locations and operations such as land transport, air, and sea freight in one building will improve our efficiency and productivity and streamline our cargo flows between the different transport modes,” said Karl-Friedrich Rausch, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Management, Schenker AG.

The new premises will house 650 employees in the Viinikkala logistics area within 51,000 sq m. The warehouse will offer 31,940 sq m of storage, including 28,630 sq m of heated buildings and an unheated hall of 3,310 sq m.

“The new location has various advantages,” added Rausch. “It is near the airport, closer to the harbour than before, and it has a better connection to the road network.” The terminal also has one of DB Schenker’s biggest sorters enabling between 35,000 and 40,000 deliveries to be processed per day.
