"Proximity to the port"
Goodman, a logistics real estate developer and manager, and its customer Symrise celebrated the topping out of a 12,700 sqm logistics centre in the Altenwerder freight village at the port of Hamburg on 4 April 2017. Symrise is a fragrance and flavouring supplier and will use a 7,100 sqm unit for the international distribution of its products.
Reinhard Nowak, managing director of Symotion, a logistics subsidiary of Symrise, said: “Thanks to the immediate proximity to the port, the inbound logistics can combine raw materials with the export of Symrise products in an ideal way. With the new location, we will be able to drastically reduce the number of so-called follow-up and advance shipments on the road.” (rf)
