Frankfurt am Main, Germany – The long-term owner and developer of logistics real estate P3 Logistic Parks will build a 9,400 square meter distribution center for Amazon in Neubrandenburg from mid-February. The site is expected to go into operation in autumn 2021.
The property will comprise a hall with a clear height of 10 meters and will be tailor-made according to Amazon's aspirations for modern last-mile solutions. This will include eight gates for the delivery of goods by truck and five additional gates to transport sorted orders to vans. In line with P3's sustainability goals, the property is set to receive a BREEAM rating of "Very Good". The conditions for electric mobility will be created in the car park. To protect nature, a habitat for sand lizards will be established.
Sönke Kewitz, Managing Director of P3 Logistic Parks Germany, explains: "On the one hand, our sustainability approach focuses on long-term economic impulses for our tenants and the people in the region. On the other hand, we pay special attention to a resource-conscious and environmentally friendly design of our properties. We are pleased that Amazon designs its distribution centers according to the same approach and thus supports us in our goal of preventing environmental impact."
Robert Viegers, Vice President of Amazon Logistics in Germany, comments: "We are very pleased to open a distribution center in Neubrandenburg that incorporates more than 20 years of logistics expertise, technological progress and investment in transport infrastructure. As a result, Amazon customers will benefit from faster and more flexible delivery options."
Silvio Witt, Mayor of the City of Neubrandenburg, adds: "The people of Neubrandenburg will benefit from a modern distribution center with future-proof jobs. Fast and reliable eCommerce is a contemporary addition to our strong local retail landscape."
The site is ideally located just five kilometers from the city center of Neubrandenburg and around twelve kilometers from the A20 motorway.
