The significant growth in logistics is leading to greater capacity and efficiency requirements at PostNord’s parcel and goods terminals. PostNord’s existing terminals in Lübeck are therefore being replaced by a new and better located terminal in Travemünde.

A cutting-edge terminal

“The new facility provides us with a cutting-edge terminal of around 3,000 square meters with a much more efficient and tailored working environment. And in terms of management, it’s a real advantage to bring these operations together under one roof. The land surrounding the terminal is also undeveloped, which offers the possibility of further expansion,” says Head of e-Commerce & Logistics at PostNord Denmark, Carsten Dalbo Pedersen.

Increased capacity 30-40 percent

The new terminal will increase capacity by 30–40 percent. Its location at the port and only five minutes’ drive to the ferry terminal is an additional benefit.

The improved security conditions offered by the new facility also mean that PostNord can take on new types of customers compared with what was possible in the 30-year-old buildings that were previously used. Carsten Dalbo Pedersen says the new site provides opportunities for much more detailed pre-sorting for the Group’s Nordic terminals, which boosts flexibility and cost effectiveness.

Our gateway to and from the Nordic region

“The new terminal therefore has an important role in our overall operations. It’s our gateway to and from the Nordic region, where we have major customers like Zalando and Adidas.”

Most of the approximately 75 workers who were previously employed at Lübeck are transferring to the new site.

PostNord’s German operations are managed by PostNord Denmark.
