In all of Europe, DB Schenker manages a network of 420 terminals. The modern terminal will enable DB Schenker not only to process a greater number of parcels in a timely manner, but also to guarantee an even better customer service. The new investment reinforces their already strong position in the region. The parcels handled here quickly reach their customers, domestic and international alike, which is thanks to daily shipments to and from 17 terminals across Poland and connectivity within the Europe-wide network.
The 9,300-square-metre facility (8,000 sqm for operations and 1300 sqm of office space) features exclusively LED lighting additionally equipped with a dynamic control system (a solution which adapts lighting intensity depending on the amount of natural light, e.g. coming from skylights). External walls have an enhanced insulation rating amounting to U = 0,36 W/m²K. Solar collectors have been installed on the roof to heat up utility water in the office section, and the boiler room has a condensing boiler. Process installations employed in the facility also allow for up to 80 per cent heat recovery, and toilets in the office building use rainwater. Compared to a conventional logistics terminal, these solutions make it possible to cut energy consumption by more than half, reduce CO2emissions by 230 tons a year, reduce power consumption by up to 60 per cent, and save 3,000 litres of water a day. Like DB Schenker’s previous fully green investments, the facility is being certified under BREEAM In-Use with a Very Good rating. DB Schenker is the first logistics operator in Poland to obtain BREEAM In-Use certification for cross-docking facilities.
DB Schenker’s new investment is located in Nowa WieśWrocławska, right next to a junction on the A4, in the immediate facility of the interchange connecting the A4, E67 and A8 –the so-called Wrocław Motorway Bypass. It is far from residential areas and the city centre.
