The company will start erecting a 68k m2-big warehouse in Rosersberg north of the Swedish capital in February, with its completion expected by end-2021.
The facility will also comprise 5.0k m2 of cross-docking area, plus office space.
The new location is expected to bring an approximately 200 new jobs to the Rosersberg area.
"With the new site, we can offer automated robotic storage combined with narrow aisle racking and thus a very efficient and competitive utilisation of the general warehouse space. The capacity is almost twice that of a conventional warehouse," Ian Swinhoe, Managing Director, DSV Solutions AB, Sweden, highlighted.
Magnus Malmqvist, Managing Director, DSV Road AB, Sweden, added, "With the new location, goods for local customers can be shuttled between the northern and southern [a cross-docking terminal in southern Stockholm] sites and be distributed from either of the locations. We will to a great extent avoid most rush hour problems which will enable us to improve on both pick-up, delivery times and reliability."
Brian Winther Almind, Executive Vice President, Group Property and Smarter Storage, DSV, commented on the eco-friendliness of the investment, "We are always looking for sustainable solutions when building new sites. The buildings will be DGNB [the German Sustainable Building Council] certified, 80% of the materials can be reused, solar panels on the roof will provide a large part of the electricity required for the operation and the building's expected lifespan is minimum 50 years."
