DB Schenker Logistics has opened its second largest land transport terminal in Finland near Turku. The size of the site is equivalent to that of 14 soccer fields. Investment in this new facility totaled €26 million, which reflects the company’s strong commitment to continued expansion in Finland and the European network.
The new Turku terminal is home to domestic and international land transport services, especially for shipments to and from Scandinavia.
“Turku terminal will become a significant logistics service point in Finland,” says Petteri Nurmi, CEO of DB Schenker in Finland. “Its higher sorting capacity allows us to take on a major share of Nordic online shopping volume. Unlike many other operators, we can offer our customers all services, including road, air, and ocean transport with parcel deliveries and contract logistics. We believe that all of these services together will enable us to achieve further growth. We are part of a strong Finnish and international network, and we can combine our customers’ requirements and create service packages that best meet their needs.”
DB Schenker currently has over 1,300 employees in Finland who work at 18 terminals. Together with partner companies, DB Schenker utilises a network of 25 terminals, making it one of Finland’s biggest transportation companies. This new terminal employs approximately 600 professionals in total.
