DB Schenker has opened a new state-of-the-art warehouse catering to fashion, pharma, high tech and F&B logistics, strategically located in Stabio, southern Switzerland.
The warehouse offers a unit load device and elevated platform, meaning goods can be transported directly from the warehouse via truck to the aircraft, without the need for re-packing. This simplified transfer process not only saves time and increases efficiency, but also offers protection against damage and theft. The Stabio branch additionally has six loading bays and a fully-customisable warehouse management system to fit the unique needs of customers.
“The location of the warehouse, paired with its cutting-edge technology, enables DB Schenker to offer competitive services in the field of fashion logistics,” says Hans-Peter Trachsler, CEO of DB Schenker Switzerland. “With the new Stabio branch, we hope to better serve our customers in Switzerland by offering a wide range of customised logistics and transport solutions.”
Stabio is located adjacent to the border with Lombardy, the largest Italian region by GDP, meaning the warehouse is ideally positioned to serve customers of the demanding Italian fashion industry. The warehouse is a dedicated free zone area and several major European airports can be reached within half a day, including Paris, Frankfurt, Luxembourg, Zurich and Milan.
As a result, the warehouse serves a wide range of customers and products, from fashion to general cargo, high tech, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage. As the main transportation hub for shipments from Italy, the branch is able to offer made-to-measure B2B and B2C delivery solutions for all customers within Switzerland, the German logistics company says. Together with air and ocean freight connections, DB Schenker can offer the entire spectrum of current transport solutions, it adds.
