Atlanta, August 14, 2019 -- To accommodate Dachser's consistent growth in the industrial goods and refrigerated foods sectors, the logistics solutions provider is investing $20 million dollars to build a new branch as well as a new transit terminal in northern Germany.
Expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2020, the new facility will be located in the Neumunster region. On August 7, 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony was conducted to celebrate the new facility, which will employee around 30 people.
Construction work on the more than 600-square-foot plot of land will start at the beginning of September. The total area of the terminal is more than 7,2000 square feet. Of this floor space, nearly 54,000 square feet will handle industrial goods, with the remaining 18,000 square feet cooled and devoted to food transit. The facility will have 76 docking bays for the loading and unloading of trucks. A 10,000-square -foot office building will complement the terminal.
"Neumünster will become another key terminal for Dachser in the far north of Germany. This new location will connect directly into our extensive European overland transport network," Alexander Tonn, Managing Director European Logistics Germany noted. "The new construction complies with the latest standards and offers secure and sustainable jobs in logistics within the region."
Dachser's new terminal in Neumünster will replace its long-standing partner, 17111 Transit Transport & Logistik. In the future, this site will serve almost the whole state of Schleswig-Holstein, but for now the collaboration will continue until the Dachser branch has been completed. The new location has good transport connections, situated directly on the B205 highway with direct access to the A7 highway.
