At a Glance Q2 2020

Logistics market Ruhr region

Logistikmarkt Ruhrgebiet


After a very good start to the year, the logistics market in the Ruhr region also showed an excellent performance in the second quarter. With a take-up of 290,000 m² at the end of the half-year the previous year's figure was exceeded by 11% and the long-term average was topped by a remarkable 38%. At the same time the outcome represents the second best result ever recorded in the first six months. It is particularly noteworthy that the second quarter was also well above the long-term average at 119,000 m². In contrast to many other locations, the effects of the lockdown due to the Corona pandemic are not yet reflected in the Ruhr region. This is also caused by a whole series of major deals, some of which were already well in progress before the Corona regulations were introduced. The most important of these include an owner-occupier deal from the logistics company DSV in Duisburg for 54,000 m², a lease of over 39,000 m² from DHL in Bergkamen and a lease from the online provider Euziel International in Werne for almost 33,000 m².
