Panalpina to consolidate logistics space in Prague

LBR Staff Writer Published 08 November 2017

Freight forwarding and logistics firm Panalpina has decided to consolidate three logistics centers into one facility of about 7,000m² within the modern logistics centre in Pavlov (Panattoni Park Prague Airport II), close to Vaclav Havel Airport Prague.

The new facility enables Panalpina to carry out shipments to customers across Europe, effectively facilitating Czech exports.

Panalpina, along with Panattoni Europe, has opened the facility, which provides value-added logistics services for multiple customers including customs clearance for both imports and exports.

The company provides services such as pick and pack, labeling, quality inspection and stock level management for the customers.

Panalpina Czechia and Slovakia country manager Robert Sgariboldi said: “Having everything in one place increases our efficiency and brings unprecedented flexibility and operational synergies.

“Now we have more dedicated space for value-added logistics services so that we can offer tailored solutions to our customers.

“We are growing rapidly, even more than expected, so we are already negotiating to extend the space we rent in order to cover all the future needs of our customers.”

In September, Panalpina agreed to acquire Netherlands-based Interfresh Airfreight Handling for an undisclosed sum.

Under the deal, Panalpina will acquire Dutch firm Interfresh and its sister companies Fresh Cargo Connection and Dutch Cargo Connection.

Interfresh is involved in the customs clearance and last-mile distribution of imported perishables from Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
