Logistics provider Dachser is setting the course for its future growth in the German state of Thuringia, where it is investing in its logistics center in the city of Erfurt.

In addition to a new 20,000 m2 warehouse with office space, the company also plans to construct a waiting zone and parking spaces for trucks. The groundbreaking ceremony took place yesterday in a lot off of Am Lützer Feld in Arnstadt, an Erfurt suburb.

Due to the coronavirus, only a few people attended the groundbreaking. “We’ve been working here in Erfurt for many years in structures that have been built up across multiple sites,” says Dr. Rimbert J. Kelber, General Manager of DACHSER’s Erfurt logistics center. “We are consolidating them into this new warehouse so that we can offer our customers contract logistics services—in other words, storage, and value-added services—all from a single source at a state-of-the-art location. This enables us to tap into opportunities for further growth in the region, as we want to get things going again once the coronavirus crisis is past.”

“Even in times of crisis, we keep looking toward the future, and we are confident we will be able to continue our success at the Erfurt location after the corona crisis is over,” added Alexander Tonn, Managing Director European Logistics Germany.

DACHSER will move into the new warehouse as a tenant. It is not far from the current transit terminal on Industriestrasse on a lot measuring 28,000 m2, with two warehouses offering 10,000 m2 of storage space each. Combined, both buildings contain 20,300 pallet spaces and 8,500 m2 of block stacking space. After the new facility is finished in the first quarter of the coming year, DACHSER will use it to handle contract logistics activities for various customers in the consumer goods sector.
