Nagel Cesko Opens New Food Logistics Centre Near Prague

Nagel Cesko, the Czech subsidiary of the Versmold-based Nagel-Group, has opened a new new food logistics centre in Ricany-Jazlovice to expand its warehousing capabilities.

The company said that the logistics facility is strategically located close to the existing main branch, around eleven kilometres south east of Prague.

Nagel Cesko managing director Jan Hytha said: “We have grown by around 10% in each of the past three years - in both existing business and with new customers. So our previous capacity was no longer sufficient.”

The new hall expands the warehousing capacity of Nagel Cesko by around 4,600 square metres and 5,900 pallet spaces.

The company has created 30 new jobs with the opening of the new logistics centre, taking its overall staff to 180 people.

Jan Hyt’ha said: “The facility is designed as a storage facility for dry goods, because the volume of business in product segments such as wine, spirits and preserves has significantly increased, and requires corresponding warehousing and transshipment capacity.”

Currently, the Nagel network includes more than 100 sites in 16 European countries. It handles around 60 to 70% of transport with its own vehicles.

Besides, the food logistics provider has a fleet of up to 70 vehicles available to it from external companies.

Jan Hyt’ha added: “Next year, however, we plan initially to further expand refrigeration capacity at our sites.

“Over the next two years we expect further growth, which will probably also be in the order of 10%. With the measures taken, we will be well equipped to cope with this.”

Nagel-Group, which specialises in food logistics, employs over 11,000 people at 100 locations in 16 countries. It generated revenue of €1.7bn for the recent year.
