Warsaw logistics centre for Schenker

by Canadian Shipper

A new Schenker Logistics Center is currently being constructed at Nadarzyn near Warsaw, and is scheduled to go into operation in May of 2002.

The facility will feature 115 loading gates, 16,000 square metres of operating space built on a 170,000 square metre property, and with its information systems, the centre expects to become an important hub in the transfer of goods between east and west.

In Poland, Schenker specialises in land, air and sea freight and all the associated logistics solutions. Schenker’s two Polish subsidiary companies, Schenker Sp. z o.o. and Spedpol Sp. z o.o., will operate under one roof in Warsaw. Spedpol, with its own network of 18 terminals, specializes in national distribution; 98 per cent of goods are delivered by Spedpol within 24 hours. Together, the two subsidiary companies will implement complete single-source logistics concepts for trade and industry. Both companies are closely involved in Schenker’s global network.

The logistics centre in Warsaw will offer cross-docking, national and European distribution, procurement and consolidated shipments services.

The centre also includes a bonded warehouse. With 12,000 square metres, the terminal has space available for the provision of high-class services, and it also has a further 3,900 square metres of space for offices and technology. Modern information and communication systems will ensure that data and goods flow smoothly and that turnaround times are kept to a minimum.
