Power up and go! Trans-o-flex, an express courier service that specializes in transporting pharmaceuticals and other high-end temperature-sensitive goods is investing around EUR 17 million to build a consolidated high-tech logistics center and e-vehicle charging station. The new facility in Hamm-Rhynern, on the eastern edge of the Ruhr region, will have a roof-mounted 8,000m² photovoltaic system that supplies power to 115 gates for electrically powered delivery vehicles as well as the facility’s sorting and temperature-control equipment. Additional eco-friendly features include extra-thick exterior insulation and LED lighting systems. The facility is expected to be built in 2019 and open early 2020.
