Kuehne + Nagel expands with Goodman in Regensburg

Kuehne + Nagel is moving into a new logistics facility in Regensburg built by Goodman. The logistics facility in GVZ bayernhafen, which is approximately 16,000 sq m, consists of two units and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.

bayernhafen in Regensburg is the logistics hub when it comes to freight traffic in Eastern Bavaria and inland shipping throughout Bavaria. GVZ is an important transhipment point and links the Regensburg area with international traffic routes. This 185-hectare harbour area – comparable with 259 football pitches – is home to more than 80 companies, creating around 1,800 jobs. 

„The new building is a clear commitment to the Regensburg location and to the strong East Bavarian economy. We are creating the infrastructure so that our customers can continue to develop in the best possible way”, said Henning Mack, regional manager Bavaria at Kühne + Nagel.

Kuehne + Nagel has also secured the right of first refusal for the second unit of the new logistics centre.

Christof Prange, Head of Business Development at Goodman Germany, explains: “bayernhafen is a logistics hotspot for freight traffic and inland shipping in Bavaria. With more than 400,000 employees, the logistics sector in Germany’s largest federal state is a real growth driver, which is why we made an early effort to find logistics space in the region and will examine further space for development there.”

Jürgen Huber, Mayor of Regensburg city, adds: “It is wonderful that Regensburg is situated along a waterway and a trade route for centuries, therefore it is a port city. Logistics are becoming more and more important and must be organised in a more and more environmentally compatible way.”
