Schenker Jinbei Logistics (SJL), the joint venture between DB Schenker and Jinbei Automotive, officially celebrated the opening of its multi-user facility in Shenyang, China recently.
With a footprint of 42,000 sqm, the Shenyang Logistics Center (SLC) is DB Schenker’s second biggest logistics centre in China and has been one of its largest construction projects worldwide during recent years.
The construction work of the “state-of-the-art” facility started in May 2016. After the first section covering 19,000 sqm was completed in the end of 2016, the second phase comprising another 23,000 sqm is now ready for operations.
“The completion of the Shenyang Logistics Center is the culmination of years of planning and execution. It is another important milestone for us as a leading logistics provider in China, further manifesting our growing footprint in the world’s largest automotive market,” said Thomas Sørensen, CEO North/Central China, Schenker China, at the opening ceremony in Shenyang.
SJL was formed in February 2015 to offer “best-in-class” logistics services in the city of Shenyang. As the northern city is renowned as an automotive hotspot, the facility primarily serves companies in the car manufacturing sector, but the company said it is also open to customers from all other industries.
SJL provides the full range of logistics services including customised logistics solutions, supply chain management, pick and pack, just in time/sequence inventory, inventory management, quality control, cross docking and vendor managed inventory to its customers in the Shenyang-Tiexi Logistics Center.
