DPD Germany expands capacity at Salzgitter facility

DPD Germany has expanded the parcel handling capacity of its Salzgitter depot through a €7.5m investment. The investment will boost the depot’s sorting capacity from 7,000 parcels per hour to 11,000 parcels per hour.

The extra capacity is the result of a new unloading facility and sorting hall.

The Salzgitter facility serves a number of cities, including Braunschweig, Wolfsburg and Hildesheim. From January, it will also serve the Goslar area.

“Throughout Germany DPD is registering strong growth rates, not least on account of the boom in e-commerce,” commented Regional Manager Dr. Jörg Schmeidler. “Sustainable growth can only be ensured by the continuous expansion of our network. We therefore regard this investment of €7.5m as a long-term commitment to Salzgitter and the jobs at this location.”

After the expansion up to 27,000 parcels a day will be sorted and distributed at Salzgitter, which represents a growth in capacity of approximately 50%.

The expansion was undertaken while normal depot operations continued, and the general contractors, LIST BAU Nordhorn GmbH & Co. KG, handed over the new sections of the building to DPD in October, after a construction period of six months.
