Online giant Zalando will start construction on a new distribution centre next month, costing no less than 100 million euro. The site is located at a former military airport in Lahr, close to the French city of Strasbourg.
Serving Southern Germany, Switzerland and France
The German company will invest 100 million euro into the 13 hectares-large distribution centre in Lahr, creating 1,000 new jobs. The site should be operational in the fall of 2016 and is designed to serve customers in the south of Germany, Switzerland and France.
The location will become Zalando's fourth German distribution centre, following those in Brieselang (2011), Erfurt (2012) and Mönchengladbach (2013). Some 5,000 people currently work at its three distribution centres, which occupy a total space of 275,000 sqm.
