Polish logistics operator ROHLIG SUUS Logistics will open its first warehouse in the Czech Republic before the end of this year. The company says the new BREEAM certified 8,000 square-metre facility, located at GLP Park Brno Holubice, is a response to growing demand for comprehensive logistics services in the Czech Republic.
According to the Polish logistics operator, its Czech entity, founded in 2018, recorded a 56% increase in sales last year.
The new investment will allow the firm to offer contract logistics services including fulfilment, Value Added Services, LCL handling and distribution of shipments to the Czech Republic and neighbouring countries.
Commenting on the plan, Jiri Chladek, Managing Director of ROHLIG SUUS Logistics for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, said:
“The position of the Czech Republic as an important logistics centre is constantly growing. The Czech Republic is also Poland’s second key partner in terms of exports and goods turnover. The branch in Brno will increase our operational capacities and allow us to expand our range of services, which will have a significant impact on the future development of our network of international and domestic LCL transport and contract logistics in the region.”
Photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roofs of the Brno warehouse, and a special rainwater harvesting system will allow rainwater to be reused, among other things, for the purpose of caring for the greenery surrounding the facility.
In addition to this, chargers for electric cars will be available on the premises. Moreover, the company will use forklifts with lithium-ion batteries rather than acid batteries, which significantly increases safety for employees and the environment.
The Brno facility will create new jobs for around 30 employees.
