DL Invest Group has concluded a cooperation agreement with DHL Supply Chain Polska concerning joint development of the logistics centre DL Invest Park Psary. Right next to the DK-86 route in Psary in Silesia, modern warehouse buildings with a total area of over 200,000m² will be constructed. Premises for tenants will be tailored to the tenants’ needs in order to optimize logistic processes and maximize their efficiency. The buildings will feature environmentally-friendly, sustainable solutions in line with the GoGreen DHL policy. The selected location is not incidental – the site is situated in the GZM Metropolis area, has collision-free access to the main transport routes of Silesia and convenient connections to the south, east and west of Europe. Another important factor for the partners was access to the qualified workforce in the region and direct access to public transport – the transfer hub, which is already operating, was created thanks to the involvement of DL Invest Group in collaboration with the municipality of Psary.
The cooperation between the partners will be based on the combination of DHL's global logistics competence and DL Invest Group's property development experience. On a plot of more than 40 ha, a comprehensive logistics campus will be built, offering professional logistics services and supply chain optimisation in Class-A, green buildings built to suit the individual needs of tenants. DHL declared that by 2050 it wants to reduce its emission level from logistics activities to zero.
“We hope that the new project, which will bring together all the environmentally friendly solutions implemented by DHL, will play an important role in achieving this ambitious goal,” said Wirginia Leszczynska, COO, DL Invest Group, and added: “For us, this was one of the important reasons for choosing the partner, as we ourselves attach great importance to sustainable development. The technological processes and materials used so far in the development of DL Invest Park Psary meet top ecological safety standards. The key for us is to reduce the operating costs of the facilities as much as possible by using modern and energy-efficient solutions. Insulated walls, rainwater recovery and grey water recycling system, ecological heating system, are just a few of our standard solutions. We noted that DHL's declaration on the reduction of pollution levels is based on solid foundations – already delivered projects using renewable energy sources, energy-efficient lighting, specially designed roofs, waste recycling and systems for ecological packaging of shipments."
“Our goal is to provide our customers with custom, comprehensive logistics solutions that involve cost optimization with the highest efficiency through the use of innovative solutions in warehouse spaces,” commented Andries Retief, CEO, DHL Supply Chain CEE, and went on to say: “By combining our global logistics experience with the property development experience of DL Invest Group, we will be able to offer our clients the best end-to-end solutions – a mix of modern, tailor-made space with dedicated logistics service."
