Facility aimed at fashion, retail customers more than doubles Agility’s space
GOTHENBURG, Sweden – June 28, 2018 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has opened a new, 21,000-square-meter warehouse in Gothenburg, Sweden, increasing total space in the country to 45,000 square meters.
The new warehouse will primarily serve fashion and retail customers, while Agility’s second warehouse, also located in Gothenburg, will continue to serve industrial manufacturing customers.
The new facility has 36 ports, allowing for a steady flow of containers, and has a railway line that runs directly into the facility. The line is connected to the main train system, making it possible for Agility to handle track-bound cargo directly. The new warehouse also features 30,000 square meters of ground suitable for reloading and storing containers and trailers.
In addition to warehousing space, the facility is also suitable for hub activities and terminal handling. With a dedicated 2,000-square-meter area for pick-and-pack services, the warehouse is well-suited for fashion and retail customers.
