VGP has handed over its brand new premises to Dachser Czech Republic in VGP Park České Budějovice in the Světlík commercial zone. Hall D, which has just been completed, covers 14,000 sqm and was built to suit this international logistics service provider as a further extension of its existing premises in Hall C, which covers over 9,000 sqm. It will primarily be used for contract logistics. The building aspires to a BREEAM green certification of Excellent, VGP announced. 

"We have been able to complete a hall that in all respects meets Dachser's high standards for the safe and efficient operation of their specialist warehouse. It has ten loading bays and two access ramps, can store up to 25,000 pallets and is equipped with high-rise racking with rack sprinkler technology, which makes it possible to store even some of the more demanding products requiring exceptional handling sensitivity," comments David Plzák, VGP Country Manager for the Czech Republic, adding: "At the same time, we have incorporated many environmentally friendly solutions into the hall, such as rooftop photovoltaics, heat recovery, water-saving devices and LED lighting. At the same time, we are working on planting greenery in the surroundings and the overall cultivation of the area."

International logistics service provider Dachser Czech Republic moved its České Budějovice office to VGP Park České Budějovice last year and it is currently its fastest-growing office in the Czech Republic. It currently employs around 60 staff, with 20 additional jobs to be created with the new hall.

VGP Park České Budějovice is located on the outskirts of the city in the Světlík commercial zone. Thanks to the transport links to the city centre and the direct access to the D3 motorway connecting Prague and Linz in Austria, the location is ideal for logistics and light manufacturing. The 37-hectare site is expected to comprise a total of 7 halls with a total lettable area of over 130,000 sqm when completed. The development of the park includes the reconstruction of a cycle path and the revitalisation of the adjacent pond to support local biodiversity and water retention in the landscape.
