The long-neglected and dilapidated part of the Brno Airport complex, which also included the infamous army gathering place, was given a new coat. The modern hall with an area of 3,700 m2 was built by Panattoni in order to obtain the BREEAM sustainability certification of the "Excellent" level. The building was leased by the global leader in DHL Express logistics. The company is thus expanding the number of tenants and the new building is another part of the process of modernizing the multimodal complex in the vicinity of the second busiest airport in the Czech Republic.
„From September 16, 2020, we are at a new address, in a new modern hall at a strategic location for the region of South Moravia and Vysočina. We have a state-of-the-art sorting line with a capacity of 3,600 pieces per hour. We purchased an electric eCrafter for quiet and ecological delivery in Brno. This year has shown very clearly the importance of a reliable and flexible transport network. The new premises in Brno allow us to be even closer to our clients and to support their business even better. DHL is constantly investing in new infrastructure worldwide, and we in the Czech Republic are part of this continuous development. I believe that our customers will appreciate the new terminal and all other benefits. Of course, the strategic location at the airport opens up new possibilities for the future,” says Luděk Drnec, CEO of DHL Express (Czech Republic).
„While the whole world is looking for a coronavirus vaccine, the economy needs a similar vaccine, and one of its components is certainly modern logistics, which ensures fast and reliable transport of goods and materials. I believe that thanks to DHL Express we will finally be able to fully develop the potential of a unique location in Brno. The building, bulit on the brownfield, meets all standards of modern sustainable construction and, with BREEAM certification of the Excellent level, is one of the most environmentally friendly industrial buildings in Central Europe,“ added Klára Sobotková, Commercial Director Panattoni for Czech Republic.
