DB Schenker

With the opening of a new logistics centre in Taulov, Denmark, DB Schenker is again on track for growth. The new facility operates with 87 gates over 90,000 m2 and complies with the most stringent environmental and sustainability standards. Integrated into DB Schenker’s European network, the site connects 430 land transport locations in Europe with a state-of-the-art system designed to accommodate the growing demand for cross-border shipments. From here, all kinds of goods are delivered to more than 38 European countries every day. All distribution trucks run on HVO 100 Biodiesel, a 100% biofuel that reduces CO2 emissions by at least 90% and NOx emissions by approximately 30%.

“It’s a big milestone for us to participate in the expansion of our DB Schenker network in Europe,” says Henrik Dam Larsen, DB Schenker CEO in Denmark. “With this important step, DB Schenker has created capacity for growth in the key distribution sector and is thus now ready to develop other aspects of the business exponentially. We are starting an exciting journey this year, with a new logistics centre and more new services, and we are also welcoming new customers and colleagues.”

Sustainability features

Approximately 100 DB Schenker distribution trucks and drivers are ready to serve existing and new customers across Denmark. An important part of DB Schenker’s strategy is to offer sustainable solutions in the logistics chain. “As one of the world’s leading logistics providers, it is our duty to care for the world around us and make a difference for the environment, which is why we incorporated sustainability aspects into the design of the new logistics centre,” says Larsen. Indeed, the construction project focused on ensuring a good working environment and indoor climate. The new facility is heated with heat pumps powered by 100% certified green energy, including 200 m2 of solar cells. In addition, LED lighting is used throughout the buildings, containing energy-efficient and noise-reducing windows. This makes the logistics centre an important part of DB Schenker’s 2040 Zero Emission program for land transport and contract logistics. The logistics centre project is also DGNB Silver certified, which is a tribute to the many sustainable choices made throughout the project.
