Panalpina consolidates Prague presence

Freight forwarder Panalpina has consolidated its three Prague warehouses into one 7,000 sq m facility at the logistics centre in Pavlov, close to Vaclav Havel airport in the Czech capital.
The new facility opened in September and offers services such as Customs clearance for imports and exports, pick and pack, labelling, quality inspection, and stock level management with full inventory visibility.
Panalpina regularly moves over 200 tons of airfreight out of Prague airport each month, with automotives, telecoms and high-tech goods being the most common.
“Having everything in one place increases our efficiency and brings unprecedented flexibility and operational synergies,” said Robert Sgariboldi, Panalpina’s country manager for Czechia and Slovakia. “Now we have more dedicated space for value-added logistics services so that we can offer tailored solutions to our customers.
“We are growing rapidly, even more than expected, so we are already negotiating to extend the space we rent in order to cover all the future needs of our customers,” he added.
