On May 14 Panalpina held the opening ceremony for its new 21,000 m2, 28-bay warehouse in Prague, Czechia. Two-thirds of the warehouse capacity is dedicated to MAHLE, a leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry as well as a pioneer for the mobility of the future, headquartered in Germany.
The remaining one-third capacity can be used for additional value-added services for MAHLE and for other customers.
The new warehouse is now the central distribution center for MAHLE’s inbound material for its production plants in Czechia, Poland and Slovakia. Services include cross-docking and full-truck loading for the shuttle services to the sites, with a capacity of 1,500 to 1,800 pallets per day. The new warehouse is integrated into Panalpina’s global JDA warehouse management system and will operate around the clock from Monday through Saturday to ensure continuous service for MAHLE’s sites.
“This is the largest warehouse project for Panalpina in Central and Eastern Europe in two decades and a major contract logistics implementation,” says Robert Sgariboldi, Panalpina’s country manager for Czechia. “We are excited about this opportunity to grow with MAHLE and help them streamline their operations in the region.”
