Efficiency in over 200,000 m2

METRO AG’s largest logistics site, which is also the largest retail logistics park in Europe, has been created in 2018 in Marl, North Rhine-Westphalia.

METRO’s largest logistics site, which will also be the largest retail logistics park in Germany, is taking shape in Marl in North Rhine-Westphalia. It consists of 2 buildings measuring 83,000 m2 and 152,000 m2, respecti- vely. The site boasts around 225,000 m2 of warehouse space plus approxi- mately 10,000 m2 of office and common space. With a hall height of 12 m, some 28,000 m2 of refrigeration space and 406 loading gates, the buil- dings offer the perfect parameters for efficient goods handling.

The project being realised in Marl is an extraordinary one in a number of ways. Thanks to close and constructive cooperation with METRO, a real esta- te solution that meets our stringent demands has been implemented here in just 18 months. As the developer and long-term owner of the facility, we will continue to be involved in a partnership with METRO even after the handover.

Logistics base for the future

The new facility plays a key role in METRO’s new logistics strategy. It unites the logistics centres of real,- SB-Warenhaus GmbH and METRO Deutschland in a central warehouse.

METRO PROPERTIES was responsible for finding a suitable site and for selecting the property partner. Goodman Germany will remain the long-term owner of the logistics centre.
