DHL logistics center for electric cars

The new logistics center in Aschersleben is part of the new strategy of DHL, aiming for fully climate-neutral transport and to become more environmentally friendly in the future. Therefore, the transportation company needs new logistics halls for its electric cars. Private investor Stefan Grommek asked Astron Builder PartnerBau GmbH to build this new facility.

The functional logistics hall has a free span of 17 m and is 5.50 m high. The floor area of 780 m² is divided into three areas: 550 m² sorting area, 120 m² loading area and 110 m² office and social space.

For the pent roof the LPR1000 roof system was used with an Aluzinc coating, which ensures a high weather resistance. The 200 mm thick insulation guarantees also a very good sound absorption. The sandwich wall panel is coated on the inner skin with light Superpolyester and externally with a gray coating.

In the loading area there are two large sectional doors and two loading ramps that allow a smooth loading process. An elegant 5 m wide canopy is protecting the logistics hall in difficult weather conditions.
