CO2 neutral logistics facility for L'Oréal
Prologis has started work on a CO2 neutral logistics centre for L’Oréal. When completed, the facility, located in Muggensturm near Karlsruhe (Germany), will comprise approximately 101'000 sqm of logistics space. Located directly on the A5 motorway, the centre will have good access to the area’s transport network.
Cosmetics manufacturer L’Oréal plans to supply its markets in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) from Muggensturm.
Klemens Gschwandtner, director of operations DACH at L’Oréal, explained: “The capacities of our existing logistics centre in Karlsruhe are no longer sufficient to meet the growing demand for our products. The new building is a clear commitment to Germany as a location and offers us room for further growth.”
The new platform, which will be the L'Oréal Group’s largest distribution centre worldwide, will boost the company’s current capacity by 90%. All employees from the Karlsruhe logistics centre will relocate to the new facility. (mw)
