Schenker and BAX Global, the freight and logistics arm of German rail company Deutsche Bahn has begun construction on a new logistics hub at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The nearly 19,000-square-meter DB Schenker facility for international air freight, as well as national supply and distribution is expected to begin operations later this year.

The new facility will almost double BAX Global and Schenker’s existing capacity at DFW International Airport and will include 78 truck bays, state-of-the-art communications technology, an efficient infrastructure and security systems.

DFW International Airport is a strategic hub for DB Schenker in the US and distributes air freight originating in Asia and Europe throughout the central US, as well as consolidates freight from Texas and the Southwest, feeding it either to the North American distribution network or to the rest of the world. In February 2007 BAX Global and Schenker opened a new large-scale logistics hub featuring a 21,000 square-meter logistics facility at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
