Automotive Logistics Center in the direct vicinity of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen has been officially opened. The center for battery logistics is the linchpin of the climate neutral logistics concept regarding the battery systems of the new Mercedes-EQ model EQE. Starting this year, DB Cargo will transport these systems in a CO2 neutral manner from the Mercedes-Benz plant in Hedelfingen, Stuttgart, a distance of some 650 km to Bremen and deliver them to the assembly line of the Mercedes-Benz plant there, as demand requires and in an equally CO2 neutral way. The logistics center enables DB Cargo to maneuver trains alongside the assembly halls to unload them. The lithium-ion batteries are temporarily stored in a trailer yard and a battery hall and are prepared for delivery to the assembly line. Electric tractors are used to handle the loads.
