DACHSER Erfurt continues along its growth trajectory
Logistics provider DACHSER is once again expanding its logistics center in Erfurt, Germany, and adding some 3,200 m2 of transit terminal space to its stock warehouse in the nearby Thörey commercial zone. This means that the DACHSER location now has 6,100 m2 of floor space available for industrial goods and a total of about 3,300 m2 for food. Operations at the new addition began on schedule at the start of September.
Adding space to the transit terminal creates an extra 49 gates for loading and unloading trucks. “The expansion allows us to make procedures and processes for handling cargo even more efficient,” says Dr. Rimbert J. Kelber, General Manager of DACHSER’s Erfurt logistics center.

“In addition to being better placed to cope with daily fluctuations and workload peaks, we are also creating ideal conditions for our continued growth.” The expansion of the warehouse creates ten new jobs at the location. In summer 2022, DACHSER is also planning to add new offices, complete with sanitation and storage space, as well as a state-of-the-art break room with a total area of 640 m2 for the location’s employees.

“By investing in the future of this location, we’re ensuring that at all times, we’ll be able to provide our customers in the region with logistics services of the high quality they are used to,” says Alexander Tonn, COO Road Logistics. “Thanks to the tremendous commitment of our employees during and after the restrictions imposed during the pandemic, we’ve always been able to reliably maintain our delivery capability. We’ve been and we remain a stable partner for our customers and a reliable supplier in the region.”
DACHSER opened its first location in the German state of Thuringia in 2004 and provides logistics services for customers from the industrial and food sectors. Only last year, DACHSER invested in this location by adding a 20,000 m2 warehouse with office space to the logistics center.
