Amazon has chosen Goodman for the construction of a new logistics centre in Bremen, Germany. Built on a 38,000m² site at the Bremen freight village, the asset will comprise c.12,500m² of space. Construction completion is scheduled for autumn 2019. Since 2006 Goodman has developed more than 1.2 million m² of high-quality logistics centres for Amazon in Europe. The new building will be the 14th logistics location developed by Goodman in Europe for Amazon.
Bernd Gschaider, Director of Amazon Logistics in Germany, said: "We are very pleased to open a distribution centre in Bremen. More than 20 years of logistical competence, technological progress and investment in transport infrastructure have gone into this building. This enables Amazon to offer customers faster and more flexible delivery options."
Christof Prange, Head of Business Development at Goodman, commented: "Each Amazon facility is designed to ensure that items are delivered, sorted, picked, packed and distributed to customers in the most cost and time efficient manner. Therefore, Bremen as a transport hub with its excellent connections to shipping, rail and road traffic is of enormous strategic importance to our customers. This is underscored by the fact that we have experience in developing logistics properties for a wide variety of industries: including contract logistics, the light industrial and automotive sectors and urban distribution. When planning our properties, we, therefore, pay particular attention to the flexible use of a logistics complex".
