DB Schenker opens a logistics center to handle e-commerce operations


On March 14, DB Schenker, a leader in supply chain management and logistics solutions, officially opened its new automated e-commerce center in Guadalajara (Spain). One of their primary clients, a multinational sportswear company, will be using this facility to centralize all of its e-commerce destined for Spain, Portugal, and the south of France.


Miebach Consulting has actively participated in this project, offering consulting and engineering services for its implementation, which has included participating in the “ramp up” until stabilization. Miebach worked with this customer, as well as the internal and external suppliers, to carry out the coordination of the activities, including the definition and management of the functional tests of the systems and equipment.

DB Schenker's new, highly robotized warehouse consists of almost 50,000 m2 dedicated to warehousing and online order picking, and has the capacity to process more than 120,000 units per day. It has also been awarded the "BREEAM Very Good" sustainable certification, given to buildings that reduce environmental impact and save energy costs.

According to Alfredo Alcalá, Head of Contract Logistics Iberia at DB Schenker,


DB Schenker is committed to serving the e-Commerce sector with its innovative strength and proven reliability. The automated solutions for our Guadalajara operations were installed in a record time of only four months and have already proven their stability and flexibility around Black Friday and the holiday season. We are proud to meet the expectations and trust of our customers."


Rolf Endres, Miebach director responsible for this project, comments that "this project was a real challenge due to the demanding implementation schedule ahead of us. Thanks to the professionalism and involvement of the entire team, the installation was up and running in record time."
