DB Schenker is expanding its Contract Logistics business in Japan.

The logistics supremo DB Schenker has opened its to date largest logistics centre in Japan. It is located at Baraki, only 25 kilometers away from central Tokyo next to the Wangan Expressway.

The Baraki Logistics Centre with a total area of 33,000 square meters is a multi-customer facility, while a major portion of the available space is reserved for products and parts of the electronics industry. The building should be fully occupied by March 2014.

Location, seismic engineering, environmental technologies with 2,940 solar panels on the roof, a rainwater purification system and LED lighting which will help to save 30 percent energy, and 24 hours security service make the building attractive to customers from various industries.

By applying principles like 5S/POP (permanent optimization program) and providing optimal work conditions in the integrated offices for the employees, the new logistics centre will help the company to further improve its high quality services.

To prove the high standards of quality management, environmental care and work conditions the warehouse is expected to get TAPA-A certification by the end of 2013 and ISO 9001, ISO 140001 as well as OHAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) by summer 2014.
