DB Schenker centralizes in Philippines
DB Schenker has opened a new central facility in Manila.
The three DB Schenker offices previously located in metro Manila are centralized in the Sabrina Compound in Sucat/Paranaque City. The new facility provides 2,400 square meters of office space for the corporate office and accommodates the staffs for air and ocean freight, customs clearance, special projects and contract logistics. About 450 employees are based at the new location.
'Manila is a key hub in the global network operated by DB Schenker Logistics,' said Thomas C. Lieb, board chairman of Schenker AG and head of global air and ocean freight. 'Particularly for customers in the consumer electronics sector, we intend to further expand our network of locations, primarily in the Asia-Pacific region.'
The building includes close to 1,000 square meters of space for cross-docking operations. Adjacent to the 5,000-square-meter open yard is an area dedicated to project logistics. The complex also includes seven warehouses with 18,000 square meters of storage and 8,500 pallet positions, where logistics services are provided for health care, semiconductors and telecommunications shippers.
