Company Description

DB Schenker is the world’s leading global logistics provider — we support industry and trade in the global exchange of goods through land transport, worldwide air and ocean freight, contract logistics and supply chain management. DB Schenker is a division of German rail operator Deutsche Bahn AG that focuses on logistics and was founded 150 years ago. Integrated logistics resides at the world’s most important intersections, where the flow of goods creates an effective link between carriers. Our value-added services ensure the flow of goods continues seamlessly and supply chains stay lean and optimized for success.

Project Description

Our logistic branch was recently combined with a land transport cross dock hub. Business is growing and the current infrastructure does not suit the business needs in size but is also a bit outdated. Current location of the branch is Hanzepoort Oldenzaal, the new building should be located in the near surroundings (max 20-30km) from current location (preferable East-North-East of current location)and must have good connections with highway network. There is no room for extension in current location. Therefor we would like support to set-up a solid business case, supporting our future strategy and growth ambition.


Goals of the Project

Deliver a business case which is the foundation to pursue our board members to facilitate a state of the building to support current and future growth of the site.
