DB Schenker, a logistics division of German rail operator Deutsche Bahn, is planning to launch a new high-tech logistics centre in the Czech town of Rudná near the capital city of Prague in summer 2023, for which about 1,000 operators will be needed despite the high automation of the distribution warehouse. Recruitment of new employees began at the beginning of December 2022. The centre will offer 54,000 m2 of logistics space and will serve both retail and e-commerce transport. The new logistics site will provide a wide range of services thanks to the goods-to-person (G-T-P) modular system combined with Korber's software transport system which will also control over 100 autonomous mobile robots (AMR). The distribution centre will thus represent one of the largest deployments of AMR in Eastern Europe.
