Amazon builds two more fulfilment centres in Germany

The Australian Goodman Group is going to build two fulfilment centres for Amazon in Germany, both measuring 110,000 m² and consisting of warehousing and offices. The two centres will be located in Koblenz (near Bonn) and Pforzheim (near Stuttgart) and will offer work to 1,000 people. Fulfilment centres provide warehousing and enable the delivery of goods that were bought online.

"An extremely successful year"

Andreas Fleischer, country manager for Germany, said that "this completes a very successful year for Goodman and we are very proud that Amazon has partnered with us again. Four pre-commitments totalling 440,000 m² in one year from the same customer is a major achievement.”

 

“We have had an extremely successful year right across our Continental European platform with a total of 1,032,000 m² of pre-let developments secured in 2011," he said. Goodman is also currently involved in developments for Amazon in Rheinberg and Graben (Germany), after finishing projects for the online giant in Germany (two), France (two) and the UK (one).

 

The Goodman Group was founded in 1989 and is presently active in 16 countries in Europe, Asia and Oceania. The group has approximately 13.3 million m² of space under management, worth some 14 billion euro. In Europe, 165 people control 112 properties, worth 2.5 billion euro.
