Berlin/Prague - 04 February 2013 - DB Schenker Logistics has just started the construction of a new logistics center in Rudná u Prahy, close to the Czech capital. The terminal is designed to meet most advanced technological, safety and environmental requirements. DB Schenker will invest 23.5 million Euros in the project. The total area of the premises is 90,800 square meters. The new logistics center will become a workplace for 320 employees and is scheduled to start operations this fall. 

The logistics center will consist of a 8,000 square meter hall, featuring 92 loading platforms, including six jumbo platforms, and a 4,700 square meter office building. "The new center will contribute our further growth in the Czech Republic,“ says Tomáš Holomoucký, Managing Director, Schenker spol s r.o. “Our new premises will contribute to faster transit times, due to excellent traffic links. And we will offer the full range of logistics services, including handling of air and ocean containers.” 

The premises will be equipped with an intelligent lighting system and a top-of-the-range HVAC system (heating, ventilation, air conditioning). The security system has been designed to ensure highest standards. DB Schenker is going to apply for the TAPA certification - A level. Customers will also benefit from a bonded warehouse and a warehouse dedicated to hazardous and flammable substances (ADR). 

Both the office building and the warehouse are designed to ensure minimum impact on the environment. An in-house photovoltaic power station and a system for solar heating of hot service water are a part of the project. A heat pump is also planned. The architects also plan a CNG station (Compressed Natural Gas) for passenger cars. 

The modern center will feature resting zones, a café and canteen. There will be 178 parking spaces for passenger cars and 90 for trucks. Generously planned green areas will spread over 37,000 square meters.
