Italy is one of DB Schenker’s biggest markets in Europe – and with a newly commissioned warehouse in the city of Bologna, the logistics service provider has just expanded its range of services in the country yet again. The facility with a floor space of 11,000 square meters and 90 loading ramps offers ideal connections to the Italian and Europe-wide freight transport routes. DB Schenker invested about ten million euros in the property.
Environmental protection and energy efficiency played a central role in the planning and construction. The logistics center was designed with the aim of obtaining BREEAM certification for sustainable construction. It features LED lighting technology, solar panels, a high-quality thermal facade, insulated windows and a rainwater treatment system. An innovative building management system controls all of this plant and equipment.
Ideal transport connections and climate-efficient: DB Schenker has commissioned a new warehouse in Bologna. The logistics service provider now has over 140,000 square meters of storage space and operates 31 offices in Italy
