Goodman to develop 12,000 m² temperature controlled logistics center for HAVI Logistics (DE)
HAVI Logistics is the leading logistics provider for the system catering trade, delivering fresh and frozen goods to restaurant chains, service stations and similar facilities. To support its European expansion plans, HAVI commissioned Goodman to develop a new 12,000 m² temperature controlled logistics center in Rheinberg.
Goodman is investing in the new building, which is equipped with modern cooling technology. HAVI Logistics will lease the property, which is located near its headquarters in Duisburg, for an initial 10-year period.
Construction has already commenced and Goodman plans to handover the completed building to its customer in the summer of 2015. HAVI will use the facility as a central hub for German-wide distribution, serving its system-catering customers.
"In recent years we have established ourselves as the market leader for system catering trade logistics. To consolidate this position and realize our expansion plans, we require state-of-the-art properties in prime locations," said Sven Sachse, Chairman of the HAVI Logistics Executive Board. "Goodman provided a comprehensive solution for us to efficiently serve existing and future customers in the German market."
“Our customer-centric approach was vital in realizing this deal,” explained Jordan Corynen, Goodman Director for Germany. “In addition to securing the optimal location for the new development, Goodman went a step further by incorporating the refrigeration technology required to manage HAVI’s complex and specific storage requirements. This allowed us to propose a solution specific to the needs of our customer.”
Beyond building design and investments, HAVI Logistics will benefit from Goodman’s technical and operational property services support. A key feature of this is Goodman’s flagship property investment plan, a unique benefit Goodman provides to its customers that ensures all its properties are maintained to the highest market standards.
