Logistics service provider Horst Pöppel Spedition is building a new multi-user logistics facility at bayernhafen Regensburg. A key focus of the construction project will be sustainability, with the logistics facility achieving ‘Gold’ certification status from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). The first phase will see the construction of a 15,000 square metre facility with offices and communal areas.

The facility will offer industrial and commercial customers a wide range of tailored logistics solutions, including high-bay and block storage. In terms of sustainability, highlights include an environmentally friendly thermal pump heating system and photovoltaic panels covering the entire roof surface to meet 100% of the electricity requirements. Pöppel also plans to install ‘green walls’ to help improve air quality and promote biodiversity.

“We have been actively pursuing quality for more than 50 years. Innovation and modernity will lead us into a secure future,” says Herbert Rückerl, General Manager of Horst Pöppel Spedition GmbH & Co. KG, “Our new building project sends a clear message about the future direction and development of our company in these difficult economic times. Ultimately, we want to create forward-looking prospects for our current and potential employees in a state-of-the-art workplace”.

The logistics facility will be built on an approximately 24,000 square metre site on Budapester Straße in Westhafen. The new building will increase the covered storage area managed by Pöppel at bayernhafen Regensburg to around 50,000 square metres. The logistics service provider, which is active throughout Europe and supplies the most important logistics centres of the food retail sector throughout Germany, recently opened a new multi-user warehouse in Äußere Wiener Straße. This new investment underlines the key role played by bayernhafen Regensburg and its infrastructure.

Project details:
• 1st construction phase: 15,000 square metres of usable floor area
• Start of construction 12/2023
• Completion scheduled for 10/2024
• 2nd construction phase planned for 2026/2027
