Last month, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Poland officially opened its newly expanded office in Stryków near Łódź in a ceremony where customers, employees and the owners of the building, Segro Company were invited to celebrate the office's expansion. The new and improved facility includes increased warehouse and storage capacity which was necessary for the office's increasing customer base.
President of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Poland, Julisz Skurewicz commented:
“Although we opened the Stryków terminal last December, it was only until recently that we made the major development of tripling its storage capacity. This has proved vital for us, especially as in February 2008, Hellmann signed an agreement with leading Polish alcohol manufacturer Wyborowa S.A to provide extensive logistical services.”
Aside from Wyborowa S.A, the Stryków office of Hellmann Poland will also be working with other key customers including bicycle manufacturer, KROSS S.A and milking equipment manufacturer, DeLaval Sp.z.o.o.
The newly acquired warehouse space is a modern A class building with 13,100 sq m floor space and the capacity for 13,000 europallets. Hellmann is also designing an area so that drivers can relax during their journey. Services provided include warehouse management such as tax warehouse, bonded warehouse and service of duty free zones including airports, also added values services such as co-parking. The terminal is also a transshipment hub for the distribution of goods.
In the near future, the terminal will become the main transshipment for the groupage cargo system in domestic transport. International connections in European distribution are also planned to be introduced.
Thanks to the development of the Stryków office, the current Hellmann warehousing area in Poland now amounts to 70,000sq m and the number of employees has grown to 360.
Hellmann Poland's new office is situated in Tulipan Logistics Park in a strategic part of Poland close to the planned A1 and A2 junction point.
