DB Schenker, the leading rail freight operator in Europe, offers complete logistics solutions that are tailor-made for its customers. The company places a special focus on sustainability to ensure that its operations have a minimal environmental footprint. For example, DB Schenker’s logistics centre in Önnestad, Sweden, has been specially designed and built with a consistently eco-efficient design.
DB Schenker’s logistics centre in Önnestad focuses on aligning sustainability considerations with economic objectives. Here, ofﬁces and other rooms are located next to approximately 3,500 square metres of warehouse space, high-bay warehouses and handling areas. Due to the centre’s daily stock turnover, and the dispatch and storage of a wide variety of package types, dust started to develop on the premises over time. This not only affected the stored goods, but it impaired working conditions. Simple air purifiers did not suffice to remove the dust. Despite increased cleaning efforts, the problem could not be controlled and the logistics centre appeared unclean.
Camfil's CC6000 enables dust-free warehousing and improves working conditions for our employees.
Bo Jönsson, location manager at DB Schenker in Önnestad, summarises the beneﬁts achieved with CC6000.
“The Camﬁl CC6000 units enable dust-free warehousing and improve the working conditions for our employees. Thanks to these air puriﬁers, we can offer our customers clean products with less cleaning effort inside the building. This highly efﬁcient ﬁltration solution requires fewer air changes, which also decreases repair and maintenance costs. The CC6000 stations can be optimally controlled with the Schenker Properties Facility System. All systems operate with the highest possible energy efﬁciency and cost effectiveness. With the CC6000s, we have all aspects of dust exposure under control. As we are absolutely impressed by the performance of the CC6000, we have recommended the solution to other DB Schenker logistics centres, which are planning to install CC6000 in the near future.”
