Logistic location logport IV in Kamp-Lintfort to enter market in 2015 – many new workplaces in the region
The establishment of the inter-municipal logistic center logport IV in Kamp-Lintfort has taken another big step forward. The Supervisory Board of logport ruhr GmbH, a Joint Venture of Duisburger Hafen AG and RAG Montan Immobilien GmbH, approved the main resolutions regarding logport IV at today’s meeting. The urban development contract has been signed today in the first step towards implementation. The contracts regarding the city’s areas on the Terhardtshof, the city properties on the Vinnmansweg as well as the property of the drug rehab aftercare centre will be registered tomorrow.
logport ruhr will market the 30 hectare site with the help of the “wir4” framework for economic development. Activities will focus on companies in the value-added logistics segment, as well as trading and production companies with increased space and logistics requirements. “Education and logistics are our drivers in the structural transformation process. The former coal storage location is the ideal location for a logistic center. I am hopeful that this will create several hundred new workplaces,” says mayor Prof. Dr. Christoph Landscheidt.
The location in the Norddeutschlandstraße offers a decisive advantage due to its bimodal development. It offers a rail siding in addition to the direct exit from the Autobahn feeder B 528, which is still being built through logport ruhr. This creates a direct connection with the Port of Duisburg logistics turntable, and an ideal link to the international transportation network. “The link with the duisport logistics hub connects logport IV to international markets. This will not only increase the attractiveness of the logistics areas, but also make an important contribution to strengthening the Rhine-Ruhr industrial and logistic location,” says Erich Staake, Chief Executive Officer of Duisburger Hafen AG. “Our aim in particular is to use logport IV to meet the considerable demand from international companies with extensive logistics requirements. Therefore the rapid and sustainable development of this logistics location is very important to the regional interest,” adds Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Noll, Chairman of the Board of RAG Montan Immobilien.
At this time, planning acts are being established for the location. In the second half of the year, logport ruhr will actively commence advertising and marketing activities with the support of the “wir4” framework for economic development.
