The GVZ Augsburg is one of the most efficient freight transport hubs in Germany. It is a strategically important location factor for the Augsburg / Bavarian Swabia region and, in a central location between Ulm and Munich, is a highly frequented hub for national and international freight traffic.
At a festive opening event on October 8th, DB Schenker presented a new state-of-the-art logistics hall with a total storage area of 38,000 m² in the GVZ Augsburg. The logistics service provider serves internationally operating companies, such as the robot manufacturer Kuka and the MediaShop Group, which are important for the Augsburg location.
DB Schenker is one of the logistics providers that have made significant contributions to the development of this site since the opening of the GVZ around ten years ago. Including the recently commissioned new warehouse, the company has a commercial space for contract logistics of 78,000 m² at this location. In the Augsburg region, DB Schenker operates a wide variety of logistics businesses at a total of around 140,000 m² at several locations.
DB Schenker’s growing commitment at the Augsburg location represents an extremely successful win-win situation for the region and all companies involved. As a global logistics company, they provide the industry with an integrated logistical network that is essential for the competitiveness of both industry and commerce,” said Karl-Heinz Emberger, CEO of Schenker Deutschland AG.
Philipp Nachbaur represented the MediaShop Group as CEO. “Because of our strong growth, a merger of the locations in a central warehouse was essential for the German speaking countries. This was associated with great expectations, such as faster processes and greater transparency and quality. DB Schenker met our expectations in Augsburg and did not shy away from constantly questioning and optimising them,” said Philipp Nachbaur, CEO of the MediaShop Group.
