Goodman and GLX open logistics centre in Berlin East Freienbrink freight village
The Capital Region Berlin-Brandenburg has become an important European location for logistics in the recent years. Goodman and GLX Global Logistic Services celebrated the opening of a new 17,000 sqm logistics centre in Berlin’s East Freienbrink freight village. Initially, the logistics service provider will use 12,000 sqm of the new building as a European hub for the spare parts logistics and after-sales service of its customer Knorr-Bremse, the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles. Hendrik Fischer, State Secretary in the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy for the state of Brandenburg, and Ute Bankwitz, Senior Manager from Brandenburg Invest attended today’s opening event. The new property offers GLX a brand new warehouse with excellent sustainability features, built to Goodman’s highest quality standards. The Group will use the new facility to consolidate two existing logistics centres based in Berlin and Augsburg under one roof. “The new logistics centre is a flagship project for us. On the one hand, with this modern property in an excellent location, we improve the efficiency of our services to Knorr-Bremse; on the other hand, it marks the start of further growth for GLX,” said Roland Becker, Managing Director of GLX Global Logistic Services.
