Metro Group Announces Plans For ‘Largest Retail Logistics Park’ In Marl

Metro Group has announced it plans to open its largest logistics hub in Marl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, which have a total area of more than 220,000 square metres.

The new logistics hub, which will service Metro Cash & Carry and Real hypermarket outlets, ‘represents a central element of Metro Group’s new logistics strategy announced in September 2015’, the company said.

It added that ’as part of the reorganisation and replacing the former seven logistics hubs, the logistics services shall in the future be provided by two new, more modern and larger logistics centres as well as by one extended location, and handle a significantly larger volume of goods.’

“The location in Marl is a stroke of luck for our logistics strategy in Germany”, says Mark Frese, Chief Financial Officer of Metro Group and also responsible for the company’s logistics.

“With this new hub, we complete the new logistics network of Metro Group in Germany and will be able to even better meet the needs of our sales lines Metro Cash & Carry and Real in the future.”
