Groundbreaking ceremony for new distribution center in the Port of Duisburg
Duisburg/Hamburg, 12.07.2016 | The construction of a new distribution center in the Port of Duisburg, which will be built by Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH for trinkkontor BACHER-CARINA & STAMS GmbH, officially got underway with today's groundbreaking ceremony. A modern logistics property with approximately 15,000 square meters of warehouse space will be built on a 35,000 square meter land parcel in logport I by December 2016. Garbe Industrial Real Estate will invest approximately EUR 12 million into the development of the project.
“The 96 meter wide and 144 meter long building, with its 17 loading docks and an outside area for shunting, has been specially configured for processing heavy goods,” says Jan Dietrich Hempel, Managing Director of Garbe Industrial Real Estate, with regard to the special features of this project. In addition, the premises will also feature a wash station for transporters and beverage trucks, and almost 100 parking spaces for cars and trucks. The Hamburg-based logistics property developer will lease the distribution center to trinkkontor BACHER-CARINA & STAMS GmbH, which is part of the Bitburger bewery group, for a period of ten years following its completion.
According to information provided by the company, the new location will have approximately 170 employees, who will provide the entire bandwidth of wholesale beverage services for the food service industry, events, beverage markets, and also for wholesalers and retailers starting in 2017. This includes, for example, the stocking of event vehicles, which are equipped with drawing facilities, counters, tent fittings or glasses. Due to its immediate vicinity to the access roads for the A 40 and A 57, the new distribution location is optimally suited for the rapid processing of beverage logistics in the company’s key regions, which include the Rhineland, the Lower Rhine, the western Ruhr region and the southern Münster region.
“The addition of trinkkontor not only confirms the attractiveness of this location. It also underlines the enormous employment effects of added-value logistics. A total of 5,000 new workplaces have been created in logport I since 1998 alone,” says Erich Staake, Chief Executive Officer of Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport).
