Berlin/Essen/Shanghai, February 26, 2013 – DB Schenker’s new 47,000 square meters distribution center for customer KONE, one of the global leaders in the supply of complete elevator and escalator solutions, has recently started operations. The facility was inaugurated together with the investor company, Goodman in Kunshan Jinxi Eco-Industrial Park, after 13 months of construction and preparation. It is the largest DB Schenker warehouse in China and one of the largest DB Schenker facilities in Asia Pacific.
The facility unifies KONE’s previous warehouse locations around Kunshan in one warehouse. Due to KONE’s continuous success and strong growth in China, the company requires first class logistics services. With the new distribution center in Kunshan, DB Schenker has been able to provide the best solution to KONE. The new warehouse is located near to KONE’s production factory and is storing finished products ready to be distributed throughout China and internationally.
“47,000 square meters is a significant number, and for us at DB Schenker, this is in an important step on our way to become the leading logistics provider in China,” said Karl-Heinz Emberger, Managing Director North/Central China, Schenker China Ltd., at the opening ceremony.
