Edeka to build logistics centre in Oberhausen
The German trading company Edeka Rhein-Ruhr is set to build a state-of-the-art central distribution facility on a 290,000 sqm site in Oberhausen Waldteich (Germany). The platform will create about 1,000 jobs. Edeka expects work to start in 2018, and end two years later.
The new distribution centre, where 20,000 articles per day will be processed, is to play a pivotal role in supplying nearly 1,000 Edeka food stores in the Rhine-Ruhr region.
According to Edeka, one of the advantages of the new storage site in Oberhausen’s Waldteich district is its swift access to the nearby A3 motorway. The warehouse will have its own separate road running parallel to the motorway. This will avoid the need to burden the local roads with additional traffic. (mw)
