Panattoni Europe has been awarded a contract by the Volkswagen Group to build a new multi-brand packaging centre for the export of automotive parts. The choice was made for the JadeWeserPort, Wilhelmshaven. Germany’s only deep-water port provides direct links to the mainline rail network and the A 29 motorway. On a site of approx. 100,000 m² Panattoni will build the new packaging centre from where automotive parts of the brands Audi, Volkswagen and Volkswagen commercial vehicles will be shipped to the Group’s production facilities overseas, including plants in Mexico, USA and China. The logistics centre will comprise five halls with a total usable area of 45,000m² and will be constructed in compliance with the DGNB Gold Standard [DGNB: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen – DGNB e.V., (German Sustainable Building Council)].
The completion is planned first the first quarter 2019.
