Fifth HUB starting: On 1 August, we put our West-HUB in Bottrop into operation as planned. This provides our 93 partners and their customers with 30 percent more space for general cargo handling. The 6,000 square metre logistics area with 52 gates was already busy on the first night.
Our depots in the Netherlands and Belgium as well as the HUB of our French partner cooperation Astre Palet System are already connected to the West HUB. With the fifth HUB, we are taking into account both the growth through new partners and the high volume of shipments in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region.
