Poland generated the highest revenue in Raben Group last year
In April, Raben Logistics Polska moved its depot in Olsztyn to a new location and in June, the first operations started in Adamów, where the company is running a central warehouse for Makro at Panattoni Park A2.
The 33,000 m2 facility utilises many innovative solutions which increase not only process efficiency, but also employee safety.
The automatic sorting system created thanks to effective cooperation with the customer is particularly noteworthy. It is one of the first and most modern sorters of this type in Europe.
The second half of the year was also marked by the construction of new facilities in Silesia – a 50,000 m2 distribution centre in Ruda Śląska and additional warehouses in Sosnowiec.
In November, the company opened a location in Legnica, where a dedicated contract logistics project for Ahlers AG Group is run in the 11,000 m2 facility leased at Panattoni Legnica Park.
Fresh Logistics Polska, which specialises in logistics of fresh products in controlled temperatures, also invested a lot in 2020.
Thus, the company invested in modern warehouses with a total area of 16,000 m2 in Wojanowo and Nowa Wieś Wrocławska.
After the completion of the project, Fresh Logistics has a total warehouse capacity exceeding 55,000 m2 dedicated to the storage of fresh food products.
The new investments allow for the storage of goods which require various temperature ranges from 0°C to +15°C, and for providing additional services such as co-packing and labelling.
Moreover, they allow for storing frozen products and performing transloading operations of container units.
