In spring 2019, construction work started at Atlaspark, the logistics hotspot in the port of Amsterdam. Here, a state-of-the-art GLS depot is being built that will double capacity in the Dutch capital – with a handling area of 6,200 square metres, 140 loading bays and a powerful sorting system. GLS Netherlands will thus be ready for rising parcel volumes.
The depot will also boast sustainable highlights such as solar thermal collectors, heat pump-based heating and charging stations for electric vehicles. The more than 200-strong workforce will benefit from larger office spaces and a new works canteen. Drivers can look forward to improved ergonomics, as the depot floor will be at the same height as the loading areas of the vehicles.
