Rohlig SUUS Logistics, a leading logistics operator in Central and Eastern Europe, is strengthening its prominent position in the Czech market with a new investment. In response to the increasing demand for comprehensive logistics services in the Czech market, the company is expanding its warehouse space in Brno to 12,500 sqm, which marks an approximately 50 percent increase. Rohlig SUUS Logistics also places a strong emphasis on road, sea, and air freight services in the region.
The new investment, located at GLP Park Brno Holubice, is a modern logistics warehouse with a cross-dock terminal covering an area of 4,200 sqm. This facility marks the second Rohlig SUUS Logistics presence at this location. The first one was opened in the fourth quarter of 2022 and represented the inaugural foreign warehouse for the Polish logistics operator. This new facility is another significant part of the development in the Czech market. In June, the company fully acquired Joppa Logistics, which specializes in warehousing services and groupage road transport. Thanks to this investment, Rohlig SUUS Logistics has doubled its market share in the Czech Republic. Currently, the logistics operator employs over 150 employees in the country.
Artur Malarski, Board Member at Rohlig SUUS Logistics responsible for the development of CEE, says, “Our strategy is to become a major player in Central Eastern Europe. The development of our services in the Czech market is a natural progression in our roadmap. The Czech Republic is an especially important region for us. We put a great emphasis on developing road freight services here through collaboration with other Rohlig SUUS Logistics branches in the CEE region, in addition to global freight services in partnership with the Röhlig network.”
Jiri Chladek, Managing Director of Rohlig SUUS Logistics for the Czech and Slovak Republic, adds: “The Czech Republic’s position as an important logistics centre is growing steadily. The country is also Poland’s second key partner in terms of exports and goods turnover. The Brno branch has significantly increased our operational capabilities and allowed us to expand our range of services, which will have a significant impact on the future development of our network of international and domestic groupage transport and contract logistics in the region.”
Rohlig SUUS Logistics provides a wide range of logistics services to the Czech market, encompassing road, air, sea, rail, and 4PL services. The new investment in Brno expands the company’s portfolio to include comprehensive contract logistics services such as those dedicated to e-commerce customers, fulfilment, temporary storage warehousing, Value Added Services (e.g. co-packing, and labelling), general cargo handling, and distribution of shipments to the Czech Republic and neighbouring countries. The warehouse is located near the D1 highway, which provides links to Poland, the Slovak Republic, Hungary and Austria.
Each of the new Rohlig SUUS Logistics warehouse facilities meets the highest environmental standards and is BREEAM certified. The Brno Warehouses are managed by Blue Yonder’s top-of-the-line WMS system and have an A+ rating. Photovoltaic panels will be installed on the roofs of the facilities, and a special rainwater collection system allows it to be reused. Chargers for electric cars have been made available onsite. In addition, the company has introduced forklifts with lithium-ion batteries instead of acid batteries, which significantly increases safety for employees and the environment.
