Central HUB expansion of GO! Express & Logistics
- Investment sum of over €10 million
- Doubled capacities
- Consistently high standards ensured
Bonn, 3rd August 2017. GO! Express & Logistics is expanding its central sorting facility in Niederaula, Hesse. After completion, there will be over 7,600 m2 of hall floor space as well as ample space for offices, social areas and storage rooms. The expansion will enable 10,500 packages to be sorted per hour. To handle these volumes, up to 30 new employees will join the team. The expansion of the existing HUB will commence immediately in ongoing operation and is scheduled to be completed by May of next year. The medium-sized express and courier service provider is investing over €10 million in the construction project.
GO! continues to grow
The quality leader in express deliveries and highly time-critical consignments has recorded growth of over ten per cent in consignment volumes for the fourth year in succession. To handle the increasing consignment volumes, the decision was made to commence with the construction project earlier than planned. To meet growing customer demand for consistent standards in addition to the increasing consignment numbers, the logistics expert has focused on the continuous expansion of its network.
‘Following the construction and expansion of some decentralised regional HUBs, the expansion of our central HUB is another step towards reducing transport routes and preserving our flexibility in route planning,’ explains Ulrich Nolte, managing director at GO! Express & Logistics (Deutschland) GmbH.
Expanded capacity for further improved service
Once the construction project is completed, all conditions will be in place to further ensure maximum flexibility for the transportation of rising consignment volumes for customers. 70 additional gates for vans and lorries will ensure that all consignments leave the handling area on time and arrive at business centres by 10 a.m. or with customers throughout Germany by 12 p.m. GO! reaches all major European cities overnight.
‘This expansion will give us the capacity to continue handling the expected consignment volumes on schedule,’ explains Ulrich Nolte. ‘The new sorting facilities are designed to make sorting capacities even more flexible,’ Nolte continues.
In cooperation with BKM Schlüsselfertigbau and the VanRiet Group as strong partners, GO! is carrying out the project and promoting the issue of sustainability with the use of energy-efficient LED technologies and charging stations.
