Expansion in the Rhine-Main area: LCW construction update - handover to the builder!
In September 2021, the cornerstone for further growth in the Rhine-Main region - with a total capacity of 10,000 square metres - was laid with the signing of the contract. In June 2022, demolition work could begin until the building permit was issued in July 2022.
A good year later - in June 2023 - it was possible to start equipping the warehouses until the new building could be handed over to the client on 31 July 2023.
On 01.08.2023, the LCW - Logistik Center Weiterstadt - went live with the first deliveries of goods. The warehouse with different temperature and storage zones for demanding goods of the pharmaceutical industry - is optimally located directly on the A5 in Weiterstadt, and thus in the immediate vicinity of the container terminal in Gernsheim as well as Frankfurt Airport, and built according to the latest standards. The state-of-the-art and pharma-compliant logistics facility is DGNB Gold certified and stands out as a GxP-compliant facility where, among other things, cold chain handling can also be guaranteed.
The 10,000 square metres of storage space feature the following temperature and storage zones:
- 7,300 pallet spaces in the ambient area from 15°C to 25°C
- 6,000 pallet spaces in the refrigerated area from 2°C to 8°C
- 1,500 pallet spaces as hazardous goods storage in the temperature range from 15°C to 25°C
We are looking forward to our daily work in the new logistics facility and the many exciting projects that lie ahead.
