DB Schenker opens new facility

  • Posted on Thursday 4th, January 2018.

Transport and logistics provider, DB Schenker, has opened its new facility in Hoxton Park, New South Wales.

Minister for Finance, Matthias Cormann, officiated the facility’s inauguration at its grand opening ceremony on December 14 2017. DB Schenker said it was proud to host Liverpool City Council Mayor, Wendy Waller as well as its customers and partners.

The new facility has a warehousing capacity of 50,000m² and will reportedly be used for consumer electronics, Fast Moving Consumable Goods (FMCG) and fashion and retail items. DB Schenker has 25 logistics sites with a total capacity of 333,000m².

“The investment into this facility is for our customers, our staff and our environment,” said DB Schenker CEO – Australia and New Zealand, Ron Koehler.

“We expect over the next few years to operate significantly more sustainably, but also continue to develop our processes within our new facility, to operate in the most efficient and cost-effective manner into the near future.

“Together with our customers and staff members, it is a great occasion to set this milestone in the company's history,” he said.

“Efficient freight supply chains are a critical enabler for productive cities and the national economy,” said Cormann.

“Productivity is the foundation for growth in Australian incomes and living standards. The freight and supply chain sector contributes to that growth as a service provider to Australian industries, communities and regions, and as the connection to international suppliers and consumers.

“Transport and logistics are a critical element of the Government’s cities strategies, and key to delivering on the Prime Minister’s goal of a 30-minute city – delivering access to work, services, open spaces, all within 30 minutes of your home,” he said.
