Dachser invests in its overland network

Dachser Sweden

Dachser has announced that it is creating new capacity for its overland network at several German locations, expanding the Bremen and Hamburg locations and constructing new facilities at Alsdorf and Dissen near Bielefeld. In total, Dachser is investing €60m at the four locations, creating nearly 35,000 sq m of additional warehouse and office space.

“By continuously expanding and modernising our locations, we are ensuring that Dachser’s overland network offers consistently high quality,” says Michael Schilling, Chief Operations Officer (COO) Road Logistics at Dachser.

Employees were able to move into the new buildings at Dachser’s Bremen location at the beginning of March. Dachser invested almost €20m in the transit terminal south of the Weser, creating 8,800 sq m of warehouse space and 102 docks for the Bremen logistics centre. A further 2,500 sq m are reserved for offices.

In addition, a new transit terminal is also being built on the premises of the Dachser Food Logistics branch in Hamburg. With 6,800 sq m of total area, the facilities will be operationally and physically separate and will be used to handle food items as well as industrial goods from the neighbouring Dachser European Logistics branch. Another 1,200 sq m of office space is being built. The work, which represents an investment of €15m is scheduled to be completed in August.

Furthermore, Dachser is expanding its Alsdorf location at a separate facility located within the border triangle between Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The new temperature-controlled Food Logistics transit terminal and contract logistics warehouse will add 6,800 sq m, 2,500 of which will be reserved for a food warehouse. Dachser has been operating in Alsdorf since 1985 and is now investing €12.5m in new buildings for the location, which is scheduled to begin operations in July. At the same time, another €3.5m will be used to renovate the existing facility.

Dachser is also building additional facilities for Food Logistics in Dissen, Lower Saxony. The branch office’s transit terminal will be expanded by 4,430 sq m, plus an additional 1,370 sq m of office space. Existing buildings will also be renovated. Construction work in Dissen is scheduled for completion by July. Dachser established the Dissen branch office in 2005; since then it has steadily invested in the location. The current construction and renovation activities amount to €8.5m.
