Goodman has completed its logistics centre development for Daimler in Bremen, with the customer moving into the new approx. 33,000 sqm built-to-suit facility ten months after construction commenced. The property is located in the Hemelinger Hafen, one of the most desirable logistics locations in the Hanseatic city. The property is the result of the conversion of an old and derelict industrial plot and is tailored specifically for automotive logistics requirements.
The asset was acquired by the Goodman-managed Goodman European Logistics Fund (GELF), with Goodman to continue providing the property and asset management services.
The automobile manufacturer will receive components provided by suppliers and assemble them in-sequence according to the production process. The property has an internal storage area of approx. 27,000 sqm for the co-ordination of these just-in-sequence (JIS) processes. Special outside unloading tunnels of approx. 5,000 sqm were developed in accordance with the specific requirements of the automotive industry along with a 3,000 sqm external storage area.
“With handover to our customer here in Bremen we have completed one of our most demanding construction projects in the whole of Europe,” said Andreas Fleischer, Goodman Regional Director for Germany. “Due to the proximity to the water and the complex characteristics of the old industrial site’s terrain, we have successfully overcome some exceptional challenges. At the same time, we enjoyed the complete confidence of our customer throughout the process.”
The new construction is a conversion project, newly developed for logistics by transforming a previously derelict plot. The advantages for the customer include the property’s 3km proximity from the production site while being near the port also offers access to key transport modes.
The Hansalinie industrial park, of which the Hemelinger Hafen is also a part, is Bremen’s most important logistical turnstile for the automobile industry. Due to the multimodal connection to water, road, rail and the Hanseatic city’s airport the new construction for the automobile manufacturer has been named Goodman Interlink Bremen.
