DB Schenker to intensify cross-docking in Denmark
DB Schenker will boost its road freight service in Denmark. To this end, it has opened a new cross-docking terminal in Jutland. The new facility is connected to numerous locations of the German logistics provider across Europe.
Since mid-January, a new cross-docking terminal has been functioning in the Danish town of Taulov, on the east of the Jutland peninsula. It was constructed by DB Schenker as a part of its European distribution network. The facility with 87 gates and an area of more than 90,000 square metres is linked with 430 company’s terminals in around 40 European countries.
“DB Schenker has created capacity for growth in the key distribution sector and is thus now ready to develop other aspects of the business exponentially. We are starting an exciting journey this year, with a new logistics centre and more new services, and we are also welcoming new customers and colleagues,” Henrik Dam Larsen, CEO of DB Schenker Denmark.
Focus on biofuel
The Taulov cross-docking terminal was built in line with DB Schenker’s 2040 Zero Emission programme for land transport and contract logistics. It is heated with heat pumps and powered by green energy, which is, among other things, generated by roof solar panels. It is also equipped with LED lighting, energy-efficient and noise-reducing windows.
Furthermore, the distribution is provided by trucks that run on HVO 100 Biodiesel. By using this type of fuel, DB Schenker can cut off its CO2 emissions by at least 90 per cent and NOx emissions by approximately 30 per cent. The logistics provider intends to deploy around 100 trucks to move freight to and from the Taulov facility across Denmark.
