BERLIN AND MUNICH, May 9 /CNW/ - Online retailer Amazon recently announced the construction of a new
110,000 m2 logistics facility in southern Germany, one of two major
distribution centers to open in the country this year. These
investments confirm Germany's attractiveness as Europe's top logistics
With increasing international interest in German logistics, Germany
Trade & Invest representatives will be at this year's Transport
Logistic in Munich from May 10-13 to speak with investors.
"Germany has just the right conditions for companies to prosper: a
central location in Europe with a world-class infrastructure, a large
and prosperous market, and an international reputation for innovation
and efficiency. Global companies are increasingly choosing Germany for
their European distribution headquarters," states David Chasdi,
logistics industry expert at Germany Trade & Invest.
Germany occupied the number one spot in infrastructure in the World
Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report in 2010. The country's
dense air, rail and waterway network has led to an industry that
generates over EUR 200 billion in revenues annually and drives the
German export machine. Goods shipped to China, the United States, and
Germany's European neighbors were a key factor in Germany's economic
rebound, ultimately leading to record GDP growth in 2010.
Companies like DHL, UPS, and IKEA have all chosen Germany for their
European headquarters, while others like Amazon, FedEx, Unilever, and
NCC have major operations in the country. Germany Trade & Invest will
be exhibiting at this year's Transport Logistic, the top logistics
trade fair worldwide, in hall B3, stand 127/226 to share opportunities
in Germany's lucrative logistics industry.
