Yusen Logistics will open its brand new Warehouse in Strancice, Prague, on the core D1 highway to Slovakia and Hungary on August 1st.

The new site has been specifically designed to accommodate cross-dock operations in the automotive sector, and will house extended warehousing space for retail clients. The total capacity will be 20,000 square miles, which will satisfy all current and future customers.

The environmentally friendly site includes 30 loading bays, four drive-in access routes and uses Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to track stock throughout the warehouse. Energy efficient measures including intelligent lighting systems and insulated dock levellers have been installed. Additionally, Customer Services will now be conducted from a single site to further consolidate smooth supply chain operations.

The new location links easily to both national and international destinations throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Mr. Michal Peter, Managing Director of Yusen Logistics (Czech) said: “Thanks to the new location and purpose built site, we will be able to offer customers more options for their supply chain management needs.”
