DB Schenker is planning a new logistics centre for the automobile industry in China.

Together with a Chinese partner, DB Schenker is pushing ahead with the creation of a joint venture for logistics services in Shenyang, north eastern China. The project is to invest a total of more than €20 million euros.

A 45,000-square-metre logistics centre is planned, which will distribute spare parts and supply local car production. Construction is due to start in 2015. The project remains subject to approval from the authorities though.

Shenyang is a major focus for foreign and Chinese investment and one of the largest centres of the Chinese automobile industry and DB Schenker has been working in the city since 2003. Some 25 employees offer the full spectrum of freight forwarding services.

The company has also acquired special expertise in logistics services for the automobile industry, including supplying production lines. For example, DB Schenker packs car parts in a large logistics centre in Leipzig, Germany and sends these to China where a major automobile manufacturer uses them in its production processes.

Dr Thomas C. Lieb, Chairman of the Management Board of Schenker AG said: "This joint venture is a further important step on the way to expanding our leading position in contract logistics in China too.

"It is part of our strategy to have a clear presence in the Chinese growth regions and provide top-quality logistics services for our customers all around the world."

DB Group offers globally mobility and logistical services and operates in over 130 countries world-wide. For some further information on the group, visit: http://www.deutschebahn.com/en/hidden_rss/pi_rss/8019856/l20140815_new_automotive_logistics_center_.html
