Deutsche Post DHL Group is constructing a new mega parcel center in the town of Ludwigsfelde in Brandenburg, just outside Berlin, as part of the company's ongoing investment in its parcel network. Up to 600 new jobs that are subject to wage agreements and social security contributions will be created after the new center on the 165,000 m² site goes into operation.

The city of Ludwigsfelde and Deutsche Post DHL Group have already signed the relevant purchase agreement for the property. The sorting capacity of the new parcel center will be about 50,000 shipments per hour, providing additional support for the two existing parcel centers in nearby Rüdersdorf and Börnicke.

The company already has a sorting capacity of more than 1 million parcels per hour in its 34 parcel centers - and Deutsche Post DHL Group expects average annual parcel growth of between five and seven percent until 2020.

"The development of our Eichspitze Ludwigsfelde 4.0 industrial park is well under way. The addition of one of the most important DAX companies will trigger the further development and marketing of the area", says Andreas Igel, mayor of the town of Ludwigsfelde.

The property occupies about 68 hectare in the area known as "An der Eichspitze," approximately 11 kilometers from the southern city limits of Berlin. The property is currently being developed to ensure the construction of the new parcel center will start as planned in summer 2018.
