AGAINST THE TREND - RUHR REGION IN TOP FORM
While the largest German logistics markets are not able to repeat the previous year's take-up, the Ruhr region even goes further: with a total of 382,000 m², the logistics region achieves the second-best nine months result of the last ten years, a remarkable 42% above the previous year's result. The extraordinary outcome is also noticable in a nationwide comparison, where the Ruhr region, as part of the leading trio, ranks at the top together with Munich (391,000 m²) and Berlin (385,000 m²). Take-up in the third quarter was mainly fueled by the construction of an ultra-modern central warehouse for Edeka in Oberhausen, which will not only provide 90,000 m² of logistics space, but also create around 1,000 jobs.
