Dachser, Atlanta, announced plans to build a new branch and a new transit terminal in northern Germany.

The $20 million project is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2020, and will employ around 30 people.

Construction work on the more than 600-square-foot plot of land will start at the beginning of September. The total area of the terminal is more than 72,000 square feet. Of this floor space, nearly 54,000 square feet will handle industrial goods, with the remaining 18,000 square feet cooled and devoted to food transit. The facility will feature 76 docking bays for the loading and unloading of trucks, as well as a 10,000-square-foot office building.

“Neumünster will become another key terminal for Dachser in the far north of Germany. This new location will connect directly into our extensive European overland transport network,” says Alexander Tonn, managing director European logistics Germany. “The new construction complies with the latest standards and offers secure and sustainable jobs in logistics within the region.”

Dachser’s new terminal in Neumünster will replace its long-standing partner, 17111 Transit Transport & Logistik. The new location boasts good transport connections, situated directly on the B205 highway with direct access to the A7 highway.
