DSV opens giant new Copenhagen warehouse

[ March 22, 2022   //   ]

DSV has opened a 95,000sq m warehouse and office premises near Copenhagen. Together with DSV’s other buildings in Hedehusene, it forms part of one of the largest logistics centres in the Nordic Region, with 231,500sq m of space due to open by the end of 2022. The forwarder says that many companies in Eastern Denmark are demanding storage space close to Greater Copenhagen

The 95,000sq m warehouse includes DSV’s largest AutoStore automated storage and picking solution. Available to multiple users at the same time, it is particularly well suited for large and small e-commerce companies that need to be able to scale their stocks quickly, depending on, for example, demand and seasonal peaks.

GMP and GDP-certified cooling and freezing facilities have also been constructed making it possible for healthcare companies to handle their products at several temperature zones extending to as low as -80 degrees Celsius.

The building has been constructed with a focus on sustainable solutions as well as reuse and recycling of materials. Traditionally, it has been difficult to obtain sustainability certifications for warehouse buildings due to the size of the huge projects says DSV but the building has already now received DGNB Silver pre-certification.

A fourth warehouse of about 38,000sq m is also expected to be ready for use by the end of 2022.
