New Fiege logistics centre in Germany commences operations

Fiege opens new

After ten months of construction, Fiege has completed its multi-user centre at the Peine Ost industrial estate, which is based in the Hanover metropolitan region. The roughly 30,000 sq m of logistics space within the 65,000 sq m plot of land are split across three hall bays. Two office buildings to the front of the facility give the logistics company from Greven in Westphalia the option to further boost its Consumer Products-centred growth course. Currently, operational activities are ramping up, with operations for one of the customers having already gone live and goods being sent out. Once fully completed, the new logistics centre will have created up to 150 new jobs.

Fiege values an energy-efficient operation of its facility, with the new warehouse being certified to German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) standards. For example, the logistics centre is equipped with an energy-saving LED lighting system, a modern charging infrastructure for EV mobility and an energy concept that includes monitoring.

“The Hanover region is a vital distribution hub for us. It offers outstanding logistical accessibility, making it predestined for omnichannel logistics that cater to consumer goods”, says Christoph Mangelmans, Managing Director at Fiege in charge of Consumer Goods. The central location at the junction of national and international transport axis creates ideal requirements for international sourcing and distribution activities of Fiege, Mangelmans continues, adding that “our logistics centre in Peine has direct access to the A2 and the A7 motorways.”
