FIEGE launches operations at Hamburg extension
The logistics company FIEGE has added a further warehouse to the multi-user centre located to the south-east of Hamburg. The region of strategic importance now offers around 90,000 square metres of logistics space to clients from a range of different industries.
The FIEGE Group has added to its location in Hamburg-Moorfleet. The new, modern building of the contract logistics specialist will offer a further 20,000 square metres of logistics space spread across two levels to clients operating in such fields as Industry & Tires, Fashion & Lifestyle as well as Fast Moving Consumer Goods. The multi-user centre offers convenient transport accessibility due to its direct proximity to the Hamburg-South-East motorway junction (A1 and A25). Following a successful launch at the start of January, the ramp-up is currently in full progress. FIEGE Real Estate oversaw the project’s realisation.
Christian Thiemann, Managing Director of FIEGE's Industry & Tires business unit, explains: “In light of the growth strategy of the FIEGE Group, we aim to further strengthen our presence in Germany’s north. Greater Hamburg is considered a logistics powerhouse, also due to being home to Germany's biggest seaport. By expanding the multi-user centre, we are on one hand setting the course to meeting the growing demand for logistical space while on the other handling ever-more complex logistical services including related value-added services for our clients.”
The new two-storey building offers light-infused offices and space for 85 VAS workstations. It increases FIEGE’s logistics space in the Hanseatic city to almost 90,000 square metres in total. The quality property boasts a glass façade and a sprinkler system that complies with VdS safety standards. A special unique selling proposition is the WGK (water-hazard class) film that has been integrated into the flooring to allow for a professional handling of substances that are deemed hazardous to water. Deliveries are made via ten loading docks fitted with electric roller shutters. For reasons of sustainability, FIEGE has installed energy-efficient LED lighting at its location in Hamburg. In addition, the annex will have a living roof as the rest of the branch.
Christian Unger, the lead Project Manager at FIEGE Real Estate, says: “Years of extensive experience and our multidisciplinary team allow us to develop innovative, future-forward real estate projects that precisely answer logistical requirements. And, as Hamburg has shown, even for an existing building while operations are ongoing.”
