Maersk has opened a new warehouse in Teplice, Czech Republic, specialised in handling batteries for electric cars.

The 14,000 square-metre warehouse expands the company’s offering as a preferred logistics partner for the Central European automotive industry and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Located in the Northern part of the Czech Republic, Teplice is within a short distance of a range of car makers and suppliers in the Czech Republic as well as Eastern and Southern Germany.

The batteries can be efficiently delivered by train from the ports of Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Koper or Rijeka.

Leah Offutt, Maersk Central South Europe Managing Director, commented: “We are an experienced and trusted partner in transportation and logistics for automotive customers.

“Our processes are widely audited and approved by car makers and OEMs. We are thrilled that we are taking the next step now with this special warehouse, offering dedicated services for electric car batteries right in the heart of the Czech and German car maker clusters.”

The warehouse has a range of safety features to guarantee best handling of the electric car batteries, including thermal monitoring cameras and in-rack sprinklers throughout the warehouse.

The space will be divided into four independent, fire-resistant compartments.

Services include quality controls and charging of the batteries.

Maersk is also building a new deep-water terminal in Rijeka, which is scheduled to be inaugurated in 2025.

Two further warehouses for dry cargo were recently opened in Kladno, close to Prague, with 10,000 square metres of space, and Zagreb, capital of Croatia, with 4,100 square metres of space.

A third warehouse (11,700 square metres) will be inaugurated in spring 2023 in Rijeka.

Earlier this month Maersk and the Spanish Government signed a General Protocol for Collaboration to explore the opportunities for large-scale green fuels production in Spain.
