“Import customers need the ideal location”

10:52 - 13 Dec 2016 / News

Schenker Logistics was the first company to establish operations at the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park. According to Anders Holmberg, Business Development Manager at Schenker Logistics, it has proved to be a very successful investment as its warehouse customers import large volumes via the Port of Gothenburg.

The building is constructed in accordance with Green Building regulations, where energy use is reduced by at least 25 per cent compared with Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning regulations.

Three years ago, the German transport and logistics company Schenker Logistics established operations at the largest port in Scandinavia. That was when the 24,000-square metre warehouse constructed by Gothenburg Port Authority was completed. Schenker Logistics had by that time outgrown its warehouse at Landvetter and was looking for a new location where it could handle customer freight.

“Import customers demand the ideal location and that is what we can offer in Gothenburg. Many of our import customers have large volumes arriving by sea from Asia and other parts of the world,” said Anders Holmberg, Business Development Manager at Schenker Logistics. 

The geographical location of the logistics park means that it is possible to reach the city areas of Stockholm, Oslo and Malmö/Copenhagen within 5-6 hours.

“Establishing operations at the Port of Gothenburg is entirely in line with our strategy of expanding at major logistics centres. Both we and our customers are very happy here.” 

Since the furniture and home furnishings company Chilli went into liquidation a year ago, part of the warehouse has been empty.

“We have available capacity at present. There’s also the potential to make adaptations to suit the customer’s wishes. We have extensive knowledge within the company when it comes to robot technology, and this warehouse could conceivably become robotised in the future.”
