Goodman invests in Stuttgart location based on longstanding partnerships

Tuesday, 31 May 2022

DB Schenker and Hellmann are household names in the world of air cargo. Goodman has now further cemented its partnership with the two logistics providers at Stuttgart Airport by extending their lease agreements until December 2027. This sees Goodman investing on an ongoing basis in the location, with a focus on sustainability.



 Stuttgart Logistics Centre

Around 20 years ago, LUG Aircargo built a logistics facility at Stuttgart Airport’s Air Cargo Center. Purchased by Goodman Thalia in 2015, the Logistics Centre now boasts 9,804 m² of total hall and office space. 

The location is ideal for operations both at urban level, with Stuttgart city centre just 15 km away, and in regard to the local automotive industry, with Mercedes-Benz’s Stuttgart-Untertürkheim plant only 30 minutes’ drive from the Logistics Centre.

Lease agreements extended by five years
The facility is also leased to DB Schenker and logistics provider Hellmann Luftfracht. The long-term partnership has now been consolidated further with the extension of the lease agreements by another five years until December 2027.

On track for more sustainability
Goodman is also implementing its GreenSpace+ sustainability programme at its Stuttgart location. The company switched to energy-efficient LED lighting for its hall space back in 2018 and improved its outdoor areas in 2020, the latter work also enhancing biodiversity in the surrounding natural environment.

Wellbeing and electromobility are next on the agenda in 2022. Employees can look forward to the arrival of a bicycle shelter and will be able to enjoy more relaxing breaks in redesigned outdoor spaces, which are also set to include a smoking area.

Goodman will be installing two charging points on its premises in 2022 for electric vehicles and e-bikes. There are also plans to switch to LED lighting in the office areas and fit a state-of-the-art air-conditioning system. 
This all ties in with Goodman’s motto: we take care of making our properties green, so that our customers can focus on making them their own.
