Set to further expand its value-added and groupage services
DB Schenker is expanding its activities near the cargo centre at Luxembourg Airport, which is one of Europe’s major airports. The new logistics centre to be built there will be linked to the European and global DB Schenker network, with direct connections to all major consumer markets. The new distribution centre will have a size of over 7,000 m2 and creates capacity for 100 jobs.
As further growth was not possible at a current site, DB Schenker decided to look for a new location to build a logistics centre near Luxembourg Airport. After working closely with the Luxembourg government and real estate partner WDP, a new site was found in the Eurohub Centre at Contern. The premises will be built in accordance with high sustainability standards.
The new terminal will allow DB Schenker to offer a complete service portfolio along the entire supply chain. It will enable the Company to increase the capacity of loading and unloading units for air freight shipments. Additionally, it will be able to further expand its value-added and groupage services with full connections to the DB Schenker network.
DB Schenker has been active in Luxembourg since 1989 and has recorded solid growth since then, offering reliable and high-quality worldwide services. After starting off in Luxembourg as an air freight hub, the logistics company successfully expanded its activities to include ocean freight, land transport and logistics services. Schenker Logistics BeNeLux invests in modern sites in which all activities can be facilitated in an efficient manner.
WDP Luxembourg will develop a new distribution centre with an area of approximately 15,000 m2 in the Eurohub Centre logistics zone at Contern. DB Schenker will lease around 7,000 m2 for a ten-year period. Plans call for operational activities to begin in Q4, 2021, subject to successful completion of the approval process. WDP Luxembourg plans to invest more than €18.0 million in the project.
