DB Schenker invests in all-new Manchester facility

DB Schenker is showing its ongoing commitment to the Greater Manchester area with the purchase of a new site and a purpose-built development which will more than double the size of its existing facility.

Manchester represents the largest city region economy outside London and the 2.3 acre site at Trafford Park will offer almost 50,000 square feet of warehousing and office space.

The new site on Mosely Road will enable DB Schenker to continue providing essential logistics services to existing and new customers, promoting the city’s growth and development and to cater for its own expansion in air, ocean, land and contract logistics across the region.

Relocation of employees is planned for the autumn.

Once established at its EPC A-rated Trafford Park facility, DB Schenker aims to actively recruit across a variety of roles from sales to warehouse operatives.

Adrian Jennings, Ocean Director UK & IE: “Our intention with the opening of our new facility in this important part of the country is to continue to invest in infrastructure and people.

“Our operational model is constantly evolving and we clearly intend this facility in Manchester to be part of our future.

“We shall look to strengthen our team further with top quality talent.”
