We are incredibly proud, that we could actively participate in realising Hungary’s most modern distribution centre. General designer, project manager and technical supervisor: AddVal Kft.
November 27th, 2019, Budapest: DPD Hungária Kft. – as one of the biggest parcel logistics service providers in Europe – is carrying out a green-field investment worth 5.5 billion forints in Budapest, during which a new distribution centre is being built, equipped with an automatic sorting system. The construction work of the new hub start in October of 2019, near the current sorting centre in the 15th district.
The construction work was preceded by a lengthy design process, during which the company relied heavily on the international experience within the DPD group. When designing the building and choosing the correct technology, everything was subordinate to functionality: that is, the clients should receive the parcels as early as possible, without damage to the packages and with the possibility to extend the capacity flexibly in the future. With this expansion, DPD is doubling its sorting capacities in Hungary. With the help of the new technology and increasing efficiency, DPD can answer the ever-growing difficulties of worker shortages.
With this new investment, DPD Hungária is laying down the foundations for dynamic developments in the coming years. Both the building and the automatic sorting system tries to serve the expanding potential, which the increasing online commerce and, thus, the evolving parcel logistics market demands.
When choosing the correct technology, an important aspect to consider was the low noise level and the lowest possible environmental impact, in accordance with the group’s carbon neutrality program.
