Panattoni Europe to build facility for Volkswagen Group

Panattoni Europe, a leading project developer of industrial and logistics real estate, 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 sq m 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 45,000 sq m 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 project developer’s concept design will fulfil the specific requirements of the group’s logistics. The halls will have a flexible layout for loading and unloading, storage and order picking of the automotive parts and components such as headlamps, steering wheels or audio systems. The halls are also suitable for the handling of dangerous goods.

Regarding the construction of the multi-brand packaging centre, Panattoni intends to continue its successful cooperation with Goldbeck International GmbH of Bielefeld who will act as general contractor. The earthworks will begin in June 2018 and completion of the new centre is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.
