DB Schenker goes big in Finland

At a price tag of €57 million, DB Schenker has made one of its largest investments, opening what it is calling a 'terminal of the future' near Helsinki, Finland. The facility, which opened June 3, will be home to 650 employees, in the Viinikkala logistics area, where almost all the major transport companies in Finland are operating.

Schenker’s facility will operate with 105,000 square feet of storage, which includes 94,000 square feet of heated buildings and an unheated hall of 11,000 square feet. The locations will facilitate four operations, including land transport and air- and seafreight in one building. It is close to the airport and nearer to the harbor than DB Schenker was previously. The terminal has one of Schenker’s biggest sorters, capable of processing 35,000 to 40,000 deliveries per day.

The terminal was built according to Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA) requirements, following the standards of BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) at 'good' and 'very good' levels. Solar energy will be used to recharge the batteries that power forklifts. Additionally, a two-story design ensures that pedestrians and trucks are never on the same level.
