Rohlig Suus Logistics opened a new facility, which combines the function of a logistics warehouse and a modern cross-dock terminal. It is located at the Wieliczka Economic Activity Area. This is the first investment of this type in Malopolska.
The warehouse located in the 7R Park Krakow occupies 15,000 square meters and is the first Rohlig Suus Logistics building with an elevation of 11.5 m. The company hires about 100 employees. The warehouse is intended for contract logistics. Modern architectural solutions and the use of VNA trolleys, dedicated to high-bay warehouses, have enabled optimal space development.
Integration of the transhipment terminal and logistic warehouse functions allows to reduce the number of handling operations, which translates into the security of shipments and shortens the time of order handling,” says Artur Malarski, director of the contract logistics product Rohlig Suus Logistics.
– What’s more, we can more effectively manage human resources, thanks to which we are more flexible for our clients – adds Malarski.
Contract logistics is the most dynamically developing area of Rohlig Suus Logistics. This year, the operator’s warehouse space growth exceeded 30 percent and reached a size of over 200,000 sqm. Nearly 30,000 sqm is located in Małopolska. The second operator’s facility in Krakow is a modern warehouse dedicated to serving a leading manufacturer of the automotive industry.
The advantage of the new warehouse is also its location near the A4 motorway, which facilitates the distribution of products both in Poland and neighboring countries. For companies cooperating with partners in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and southern Europe, this can be a strategic location.
7R Park Krakow is dynamically developing. During three years we have built six modern warehouses in its area. Two more are under construction. Ultimately, the nearby park will offer around 180,000 sqm. and has a chance to become the largest logistics hub in Małopolska,” comments Tomasz Lubowiecki, president of 7R.
