DSV builds a “gateway to Scandinavia”

DSV has announced plans to open a warehouse facility on Zealand in Demark. The planned warehouse facility of more than 150,000 m sq will become DSV’s largest hub in Northern Europe, and thereby a future gateway from Denmark to Scandinavia.

The construction of the new facility is currently underway and is no more than a few hundred metres from DSV Headquarters, and the first of four new buildings is expected to be open for business early 2020.

Nikolaj Meyland-Smith, Director of Solutions Warehouses in Denmark, said: “This is going to be really big, and we’re doing everything we can to build and design the warehouses smart from the very beginning. Because we’re building a completely new facility and we are getting a lot of space, we have a unique possibility to tailor 3PL solutions and design warehouse space to suit specific needs. And we can do that using the latest available technology within the different logistics segments.”

The hub will be a short distance to a nearby port, airport and a rail terminal, which DSV hopes will ensure more efficient supply chains into the new logistics hub. Outgoing logistics to Scandinavia is ensured through DSV’s own network with around 500 trucks on regular routes from Denmark to Sweden, Norway and Finland.
