NOSTA and Felix Schoeller Group expand logistics cooperation

As part of the consistent implementation of the growth strategy for the Warehousing business unit, NOSTA Logistics GmbH will open a further location in Melle, Germany from 1 July 2020.

The location meets with approx. 27,000 m² of warehouse and logistics space the desired requirements of the group of companies. The range of high-quality warehouse and logistics services can be meaningfully supplemented with this expansion of space. When deciding on this location, particular attention was also paid to the fact that the property has an active railway siding leading into the warehouse.

“The main plant of our anchor customer about 15 km away can be reached by rail quickly and at the same time in a resource-saving manner. In this way, around 3,200 truck journeys a year can be avoided in the Osnabrueck urban area”, says Andreas Wolke-Hanenkamp, Managing Director of NOSTA Logistics GmbH. Transportation by rail is handled by NOSTA Rail GmbH.

The NOSTA Group has been operating its own activities in the field of combined transport, i. e. the intelligent combination of truck and rail transport, since 2009. One project which the two Osnabrueck-based family companies have already implemented with great success in cooperation is the planning and installation of the CT terminal on the premises of the Winkelhausen barracks at Osnabrueck harbour. Since the inauguration on 1 May 2009, NOSTA has been transporting pulp and finished goods for the Felix Schoeller Group on the Dresden - Osnabrueck route using regular freight trains. The containers are transported by truck to the port of Osnabrueck for loading and from Dresden to the plant in Weissenborn. Within the last five years, 90,000 load units have been shifted from road to rail by serving these and other route connections, and a CO₂ saving of more than 50,000 tons has been achieved.
