GEODIS Confirms Oberhausen Warehouse for E-Commerce
Summer 2019 will be one of expansion for global supply chain operator GEODIS. The company announced plans to open a new 40,000 square-meter logistics center with an innovative warehouse concept in Oberhausen and hire approximately 500 employees to support operations.
“We have been pursuing a very successful growth strategy in this market segment for years,” said Thomas Kraus, President & CEO North, East and Central Europe.
“The demand for modern and innovative logistics concepts in this area is high, because the goods are to be delivered to the end customer as quickly, cost-effectively and efficiently as possible. Thanks to our many years of experience, we have been able to develop a high level of expertise and concrete unique selling propositions in this area. This makes e-commerce one of our core competencies, both in Germany and internationally,” adds Kraus.
The company aims its focus on the opportunities in the e-commerce sector, designating six of its 14 logistics centers to e-commerce initiatives and operations. Through these initiatives, GEODIS navigates a rapidly growing e-commerce environment, seen primarily in Germany.
