CargoLine puts new hub into operation

Last Friday night, CargoLine‘s new central and European hub in Niederaula in eastern Hesse went into operation on schedule after a construction period of just under one and a half years. The state-of-the-art facility now serves an average of 82 routes in Germany and Europe every night.

Meticulous planning for maximum efficiency

In the new building, which was worth tens of millions to the cooperation, the two facilities for national and international transport, which were previously located in Eichenzell near Fulda and had separate buildings, were brought together under one roof. This enables shorter throughput times and – coupled with the convenient location on the A4, 5 and 7 highways – earlier arrival times at the partner depots and therefore faster delivery of consignments.

“Based on daily evaluations, further adjustments and optimizations can also be made on an ongoing basis,” explains Site Manager Uwe Heinbach. The proven expert in the planning, organization and operation of hubs was hired by CargoLine specifically for the new facility in 2022. Alongside him and Bernd Höppner, Uwe Lachmann, Managing Director at Hartmann International (Paderborn), and Torsten Huberti, Managing Director at Schmidt-Gevelsberg (Schwelm), were also heavily involved in the planning and implementation of the facility.

Ecologically Exemplary

The facility achieves the “Efficiency Building 40 EE” level and thus falls well below the statutory energy requirements. Compared to a standard building, this means a saving of 5,448 kilograms of CO2 per year.
