27 Mar B+S grows in Bremen
Laying of the foundation stone in the Bremen Freight Transport Center
Borgholzhausen, March 27, 2019 – B+S GmbH Logistik und Dienstleistungen has a logistics complex of around 30,000 square meters built in the GVZ freight center in Bremen. In the future, 100 new jobs will be created in the Hanseatic city. Martin Günthner, Bremen’s Senator for Economics, Labor and Ports, announced his arrival at the official laying of the foundation stone on March 28, 2019.
The freight traffic center in Bremen is growing this spring with a modern logistics facility. By fall of this year, the real estate group Goodman is building a 14-meter high building on behalf of B+S, which extends over an area of almost four soccer fields. In addition to the logistics area, office and social rooms will also be created on 1,000 square meters – space for a total of around 100 new jobs in logistics, Germany’s third largest economic sector. On around 20,000 square meters, the company offers a well-known new customer a wide range of logistics services from a single source – including warehousing and contract logistics to all services related to online trading. A further 10,000 square meters are available as capacities for future customers. “We are pleased that we will be part of the largest freight transport center in Germany in the future. With the new building, we are also strengthening our presence in Northern Germany, ”says Stefan Brinkmann, Managing Director of B+S. From a total of twelve locations, his company controls goods from a wide range of areas, such as the food and pharmaceutical industries, all over Germany and Europe.
The logistics service provider from the Teutoburg Forest chose the new location in the immediate vicinity of the center of the Hanseatic city for a good reason. Only around 12 kilometers from the city center, directly on the 281 motorway and Neustädter Hafen, the company will be able to quickly transport goods from here by water, rail or road. The convenient location of the logistics hub fits the company’s strategy of operating its locations in the immediate vicinity of the major metropolitan areas. The technical side of the property is also convincing: The new complex is certified according to the “International Featured Standard” and thus fulfills essential food, product and service standards. Since the new building also meets high sustainability standards, it will have a certificate from the German Society for Building after completion in autumn 2019.
