DB Schenker Australia is set to open a new logistics facility in Hoxton, New South Wales.

The Hoxton site has an internal area of 50,000sqm and an external under-cover area of 15,000sqm.

The company says Hoxton Park is a multi-client facility for consumer electronics, FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) and fashion/retail customers.

"Hoxton Park is the newest and largest contract logistics facility for DB Schenker in Australia," DB Schenker Australia and New Zealand CEO Ron Koehler says.

"Our staff will provide for our customers first-class logistics services in this well-positioned facility right on the Sydney freeway network."

Koehler says the company will also utilise the facility as a hub for domestic transport network, and to move full container load movements cost effectively to Hoxton Park for distribution to Sydney customers.

The facility will incorporate Automated Transport Sortation Systems (ATSS) that will allow for the consolidation of freight from several customers into the Schenker domestic transport business. 

In addition, value added services will be provided on site, including an Advanced Technical Centre providing configuration and testing for IT devices.

"DB Schenker Australia is consolidating existing business into Hoxton Park as well as adding new substantial business," DB Schenker Australia director – contract logistics/supply chain management Auatralia/New Zealand Michael Harich says.

"Hoxton Park is a key part of our 2020 strategy to grow to 500,000sqm in Australia and at the same time combine existing smaller sites into larger facilities to generate synergies."

Key features of the TAPA-certified facility include high clearance warehousing and access for high performance vehicles, full drive-around access and a weighbridge to support chain of responsibility (COR) commitments.
