DB Schenker, a global logistics service provider, has recently announced the launch of a new logistics center in Shannon, Ireland. The new site is located close to Shannon Airport and has direct access to the local highway network. The site will offer customers all services, including air and ocean freight, land transport and value-added logistics solutions. The new building will have an area of 4,831 square meters in total. This will include a warehouse with an area of 3,716 square meters. The clearance height will be 12.5 meters. The site will be TAPA A-certified in terms of security, including secure fencing, full CCTV coverage, access control throughout, an intruder alarm system and remote monitoring.
“This investment demonstrates DB Schenker’s commitment to Ireland and it also reflects the strong growth that DB Schenker has achieved with large multinational companies over the last few years,” said Ray Hennessy, CEO of DB Schenker in UK & Ireland. “Shannon has been a high-performing location for us for many years. We have strong confidence in the Mid-West Region, and the additional capacity that this building creates will allow us to expand our customer base and offer additional employment opportunities in the area. We look forward to seeing the building completed and operational within 12 months.”
The facility, once completed, will also comply with DB Schenker’s certifications for quality, environmental protection and health and safety. The warehouse’s heating system will utilize a combination of a thermal solar facility and energy efficient heat pumps. All lighting systems will be equipped with LEDs and the site will also provide electric-car charging stations.
