Goodman starts development on Koblenz Logistics Centre

Goodman will develop a logistics centre covering about 22,000 sq m in Koblenz, a city in Western Germany. It will lease 12, 600 sq m to Kuehne + Nagel.

Kuehne + Nagel will operate this shared logistics centre and an international forwarding location from the site. Another 8,600 sq m of logistics space will be constructed, anticipating high demand for the new development for lease. Kuehne + Nagel has an existing site for air and sea freight and overland transport in Koblenz. The centre is scheduled for completion in autumn 2019.

The Koblenz I Logistics Centre will boast 10,449 sq m of dedicated warehouse, 14 loading bays and technical system floorspace to provide optimised intralogistics processes. 

The centre is situated in Koblenz Industrial Park, next to to the A 61 autobahn, also very close to the A 48 and A 3 autobahns. Cologne-Bonn and Frankfurt international airports are just an hour away. Goodman has previously developed a logistics complex for Amazon in the same area. This is the fourth development undertaken by Goodman and Kuehne + Nagel in Germany this year. The other sites include; Grossbeeren, Nuremberg and Hamburg.

Christof Prange, Head of Business Development at Goodman in Germany, said, “The Koblenz region is a key hub and central point as a logistics location. Thanks to excellent connections to the Rhine and Moselle and favourable rail and road links, the new logistics complex in Koblenz provides access to a population of 2 million people within an hour drive time. This helps our customers being closer to their customers, enhancing speed of delivery.”
