DACHSER in České Budějovice will have new premises in VGP Park
The international logistics provider DACHSER Czech Republic has signed a contract with the development company VGP for a built-to-suit development in České Budějovice. The new logistics and office spaces with total area of nearly 7,000 square meters will be built in the newly emerging industrial park in the Světlík commercial zone on the outskirts of the city. The premises are scheduled for occupation next spring.
The branch of DACHSER in České Budějovice has been writing its history since 2006 and focuses on serving customers from South Bohemia. The new building in VGP Park České Budějovice will include 2,000 m2 of transshipment and more than 4,300 m2 of warehouse space with a capacity of approximately 7,000 pallet spaces. Part of the warehouse will be specially adapted for short - term storage of hazardous goods as classified according to the ADR agreement. The building will have 14 loading docks for different types of lorries, while the administrative part of the building will offer 650 m2 of modern offices. Since DACHSER is also concerned with the future use of alternative drives, there will also be a charging station for electric vehicles - both freight and passenger ones.
"The new premises will enable our convenient and high-quality dispatching of shipments within our collection service and faster clearance at ramps," says Ing. Jan Pihar, Managing Director of DACHSER Czech Republic, adding "We are preparing modern office spaces for our employees as well as pleasant breakrooms and other facilities for our warehouse operators. Also advantageous is that the park's location meets our rigorous demands for both urban logistics and our long-distance collection lines."
VGP Park České Budějovice is being built directly on the outskirts of the city in the Světlík commercial zone having excellent transportation links to the city centre and direct access to the D3 motorway connecting Prague and Linz in Austria. On approximately 37 hectares of land, there will be more than 126,000 m2 of lettable space suitable upon completion for logistics or light manufacturing. A total of seven buildings are planned to be built to a high standard with an emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability, targeting the BREEAM green certificate of Very Good.
"Due to its excellent accessibility to the city centre and proximity to the German and Austrian borders, the new VGP site is ideal for a logistics centre. We are very pleased that we were able to reach agreement with such a prestigious tenant as DACHSER, for whom we will execute new built-to-suit premises. At the same time, we are glad that our decision to build A-class industrial real estate in České Budějovice has been confirmed, since there was practically no industrial real
estate in this part of the Czech Republic before we moved here," comments David Plzák, VGP Country Manager for the Czech Republic.
Construction of the new building with ca 7,000 m² to be leased to DACHSER Czech Republic as a built-to-suit solution will commence at the end of October. The building is expected to be completed in March 2022.
