May 20, 2019: Panalpina has recently opened its new 21,000 square metre, 28-bay warehouse in Prague, Czechia. Two-third of the warehouse capacity is dedicated to MAHLE, a German international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry.

The remaining one-third capacity can be used for additional value-added services for MAHLE and for other customers.

The new warehouse is now the central distribution centre for MAHLE's inbound material for its production plants in Czechia, Poland, and Slovakia. Services include cross-docking and full-truck loading for the shuttle services to the sites, with a capacity of 1,500 to 1,800 pallets per day. The new warehouse is integrated into Panalpina's global JDA warehouse management system and will operate 24x7 to ensure continuous service for MAHLE's sites.

"This is the largest warehouse project for Panalpina in Central and Eastern Europe in two decades and a major contract logistics implementation," said Robert Sgariboldi, Panalpina's country manager for Czechia.
