With its proximity to the centre and its many new environmentally friendly features, the new depot in Modena has several benefits for GLS. “We have responded to the past growth in parcel volumes”, says Klaus Schädle, Group Area Managing Director. “We can handle up to 2,400 parcels an hour here.” The building was specifically designed for the quality and security needs of the site. The solar power system on the roof supplies green electricity and produces around 8 kWh of power each day. The LED lighting and a large green space also create an environmentally friendly atmosphere.
