DSV to expand its headquarter in Copenhagen, Denmark

Jan 2, 2019   Supply Chain

DSV is weeks away from breaking ground on the 10,000 square metre expansion to the global Headquarters in Hedehusene, Denmark. The work will begin in January 2019 after the completion of a brand-new underground 20,000 square metre parking facility constructed during 2018.

And that’s just the beginning of a 5-year expansion plan, which will ultimately result in a 250,000 square metre DSV logistics complex in the Roskilde-Hedehusene-Taastrup area – and close to 2,000 DSV employees working in the greater Copenhagen area.

 

Next to the DSV HQ is a defunct gravel pit. By the second half of 2019, DSV will begin levelling out the pit to construct an additional 150,000 square metre of prime logistics facilities. The building project will have several phases corresponding to the four projected logistics buildings.

 

“When we build to accommodate our clients’ growth, we have to think big, and we have to plan for more than the immediate future,” says Brian Winter Almind, Executive Vice President, Group Property and continues: “So, when the opportunity to buy more land right next to our existing HQ presented itself, we jumped at it. We’re very excited at the prospect of creating a giant logistics complex centred round the HQ location. It’ll be DSV’s largest logistics complex anywhere in the world”.

 

The first expansion to the existing global HQ will make room for 400 new employees to match the growth within the company’s Danish operations and global HQ support functions – and the second expansion will ultimately welcome around 800 new employees to the DSV workforce.

 

Over a 5-year period, DSV will be investing a total of DKK1 billion ($150 million) in the two expansion projects.
