Logistics Center Wuppertal
DB Schenker makes warehouse logistics Secure for chemical products
DB Schenker's business location in Wuppertal has the highest safety standards that have recently been awarded SQAS (Safety and Quality Assessment System) certification by the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic).
Therefore leading chemicals firms like Brenntag in Mülheim, Degussa in Marl and Krahn-Chemie in Hamburg rely on DB Schenker for warehouse logistics.
Fire alarm and smoke extraction units, fire protection doors that can be bulkheaded off, its own water reservoir to feed the sprinkler system and modern narrow forklift trucks with personnel protection equipment provide the highest security standards in the Wuppertal logistics center. This
DB Schenker business location has a high-bay warehouse with 6,400 modern pallet spaces and a petroleum store of 2,500 square meters. The sprinkler system and a floor impervious to liquids permit the storage of substances of Water Hazard Classes 1 to 3 as well as hazardous goods of Classes 3, 4.1, 8 and 9. Leading chemicals companies like Brenntag in Mülheim, Degussa in Marl and Krahn-Chemie in Hamburg use this opportunity to store their products safely.
Germany's leading supplier of integrated logistics was recently awarded SQAS (Safety and Quality Assessment System) certification for its safety standards by the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic). All the activities of the DB Schenker business location in Bergisch Land from hazardous substance storage to emergency plans were externally assessed according to 500 criteria. "The certificate confirms our consistent safety and quality management, as was also demonstrated in recent years by certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 and DIN EN ISO 14001:1996," explains Hans-Jörg Hager, the Chairman of Schenker Deutschland AG. "SQAS certification rounds off our high standards in quality, safety and environmental protection. As a logistics partner of the chemicals industry for many years, we take responsibility - well beyond the legal requirements."
Last year DB Schenker invested 14 million Euros in the multifunctional new building on an area of about 10,000 square meters. The 40,000 square meter plot with 48 transshipment bridges, six jumbo transshipment bridges and a chain conveyor system lies right on the A46. A fully automatic reloading system ensures a high speed of transshipment and dispatch without delay for over 500,000 consignments per year. "With our unit in Wuppertal we meet the requirements of our mainly medium-sized customers in this industrial conurbation even better and with even greater flexibility," said Klaus Lesselt, who took over the management of the Wuppertal business location on October 1, 2004. "With the new logistics center, our customers can improve their delivery quality and hence their competitiveness."
