DB Schenker Constructing Innovative Hub in Switzerland

A groundbreaking ceremony marked the start of construction for one of Switzerland's most advanced logistics centres, built by Schenker Schweiz AG. The new logistics hub will include office buildings, on a 38,500 square-meter property in Pfungen, Canton Zurich.

Nearly 11,600 square meters of building space will house cutting-edge infrastructure for storage, production supply, and other value-added services for logistics. The new location, close to the highways A1 and A51 as well as Zurich Airport, will offer industrial and trade customers a "one-stop shop" for contract logistics, land transport, air and ocean freight, and customs clearance.

Jorg Eggenberger, CEO of Schenker Schweiz AG, said, "Logistics space continues to be in high demand in Switzerland, and we are very much looking forward to this project. This is a milestone for Schenker Schweiz AG. We're sending a strong signal and clearly committing to growth. Our Pfungen hub will create an optimum connection to the worldwide DB Schenker network. With this project, we are not only expanding our logistics space in Switzerland - we're also merging our Embrach and Kloten locations, thus becoming even more powerful and efficient."
