Warehousing logistics The expanded warehouse site is setting new standards
Swiss Post is expanding the Villmergen logistics center (LZV) in the canton of Aargau from 20,000 m2 to 57,000 m2 by 2025. But parcels aren’t sorted at this center, but rather goods are stored, picked to order and delivered for companies and institutions from various industries.
This means Swiss Post is responding to the rapidly rising demand in the logistics sector for sought-after storage spaces, especially for sensitive goods and dangerous substances. Companies and institutions from all sorts of industries are saving time and money by using external and central storage and logistics for their goods.
Growing customer requirements
Swiss Post is a major player in the ever-growing warehousing logistics sector. Logistics requires a lot of space, and the infrastructure has been stretched to its limits. In particular, logistics faces a shortage of suitable warehouses with special characteristics for storing especially sensitive, small or bulky goods and products.
Swiss Post’s largest center for warehousing logistics
Swiss Post is taking action, and is expanding the infrastructure for its logistics and warehousing solutions. The state-of-the-art warehouse at the Villmergen logistics center (LZV) is setting new standards in warehousing logistics. Once expansion works have been completed, the site will be home to Swiss Post’s largest warehousing logistics center, and one of the largest in Switzerland in general. The new warehouse will provide 57,000 m2 of space. The roughly 137 million francs Swiss Post is investing in logistics and the LZV is well worth it. This is because experience shows us everyone wins with highly automated concepts in warehousing logistics – whether you’re a logistics service provider or a customer.
Whether fridges, protein shakes, or even dangerous substances: Swiss Post offers the right warehousing and logistics solution for all needs at the LZV. For goods with special requirements in particular, such as medicines or dangerous substances, the LZV is professionally equipped and certified in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, as well as according to the GDP guidelines 2013/C 343/01. You can leave the whole logistics process for your goods to Swiss Post: receipt, proper storage, picking, right through to delivery. This reduces your fixed costs, allows you to be more flexible, and you can focus on your core business.
