Arla Foods has opened a new state-of-art distribution terminal with a combined 10,000 sq m warehouse with cooling areas and office buildings in Heidenau near Hamburg. The new distribution centre for Arla Foods was completed on schedule at the end of January.

The complex, which is operated by DSV Solutions, will be used by Arla Foods as the most important logistical hub for supplying the northern and eastern regions of Germany with dairy products from Arla. Warehouse capacity is already being expanded and is expected to be ready for regular operation by October 2016.

In the future, the new distribution centre in Heidenau will stock products from no less than 30 Arla dairy sites around Europe. A team of 40 employees daily moves 1,200 pallets around the incoming/outgoing goods section.

Arla Foods has been the third largest dairy company in Germany since 2012.
