Gazeley On Track to Complete New Cross Dock 17,000 SQ M Regional Distribution Centre for Third Party Logistics Provider Rudolph Logistics at Magna Park Kassel

New build-to-suit project underlines attractiveness of much sought after Magna Park location for logistics.

FRANKFURT, 10 March 2014 – Gazeley, a leading global investor and developer of logistics warehouses, has celebrated progress on its latest build-to-suit development project at Magna Park Kassel with a hospitality event on site.

More than 60 representatives from the regional authorities and local business community  joined Gazeley, principal contractor Goldbeck and the extended project team to celebrate construction  progress to date.

The 17,000 sq m cross-docked unit, which is located in the southern part of the Kassel freight village, close to the A44/A7 motorway, is being developed for leading German Third Party Logistics (3PL) company Rudolph Logistics and will serve as their regional distribution hub.

Speaking at the event, Ingo Steves Gazeley Country Director Germany said “We are very happy to welcome Rudolph Logistics to Magna Park Kassel and to have been chosen to develop their new regional distribution centre. This project is further evidence of the strength of location of Magna Park Kassel and its emergence as a prominent regional distribution location.”

Also speaking at the event, District President Dr Walter Lübcke said, “This project has great significance for Kassel and the Northern Hessen region as a whole as a prime logistics location.  We are delighted to welcome another client like Rudolph to Kassel, which further underlines the tremendous potential this region and Magna Park offers to be one of Germany’s most important locations centres."   

The fact that the build is progressing rapidly and is firmly on track to be delivered for the start of May despite all challenges is testament to the excellence of the entire project team and the work ethos and reliability of the contractor and their sub-contractors.
