DB Schenker Logistics to Build New 27 Million Euro Logistics Center in Ilsfeld

The new site will ensure fast connections for customers in industry and trade worldwide

Berlin/Ilsfeld, April 25, 2012 – DB Schenker Logistics is investing roughly 27 million euros to build a state-of-the-art logistics center in the Ilsfeld Untere Bustadt industrial park on Germany’s A 81 highway. Construction on the 60,000 square-meter property is scheduled to begin in early summer 2012. The new terminal will employ around 450 employees and some 50 Schenker Deutschland AG apprentices when operations begin as early as autumn 2013.

“We want to continue to grow together with our customers in the region. That’s why we decided to build on this property, which is centrally located between Ludwigsburg, Tamm, Ditzingen and Heilbronn,” explained Dr. Hansjörg Rodi, Chairman of the Management Board of Schenker Deutschland AG, at the ground-breaking ceremony on April 24. The new logistics center belongs to the Stuttgart branch of the company, which employs approximately 1,900 people, 201 of whom are apprentices, in the state of Baden-Württemberg.

The new site is strategically located on the A 81 transport corridor. The DB Schenker Logistics specialists offer land transport, air and ocean freight, trade fair services and special transports, as well as comprehensive logistics solutions and global supply chain management from a single source. In the future, the new center will make it even easier for customers in industry and trade in the region to take advantage of DB Schenker’s global networked logistics systems.
