DB Schenker further expands its position as an international partner for complex logistics solutions along the entire supply chain with new facilities that highlight expertise in temperature-controlled logistics.
Shah Alam, Malaysia
DB Schenker in Malaysia opened its sixth and seventh facilities in the Shah Alam U10 Logistics Park, Central Malaysia. These facilities provide warehousing, distribution and value-added services.
The newly opened logistics center features a built-up space of 118,000 square feet and 154,000 square feet, a combined storage capacity of more than 25,000 pallet positions, and an office space of 4,000 square feet each. Both facilities provide temperature-controlled and ambient areas to suit the requirements of different customers.
Strategically located within the new Shah Alam U10 Logistic Park, the facility is centrally positioned within Klang Valley and approximately seven miles from the corporate offices in Bukit Jelutong; the distance to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is just 37 miles and there are only 17 milers to Port Klang.

The company, which has a strong presence in this niche on the East coast of Australia and in New Zealand, has invested in a world-class facility at their High Wycombe site, conveniently located near to both the airport and the harbor at Fremantle.
The facility boasts over 5,500 square feet of floor space with a large anteroom, two chillers and a freezer. There is capacity to store product up to four pallets high and the site has an unbroken cold chain to maintain product integrity.
