The 34,000 m², modern and carbon-neutral facility adds to the company’s current multi-user campus in Leipzig/ Halle. It will be powered by a photovoltaic system capable of generating 1,000 kilowatts at its peak, and energy-smart air heat pumps will control its interior climate. Other sustainable measures include specially sealed doors, low consumption LED lighting, and a solar thermal hot water system.

Aiste Slabokaite Heid, Business Unit Director North-East, stated: “In Halle (Saale), DHL Supply Chain offers a wide range of end-to-end solutions. From manual put-away and picking, to value-added services provided by our trained and experienced employees, to complex automated solutions in the warehousing and production environment.

Rainer Haag, Chief Executive Officer of DHL Supply Chain Germany & Alps, added: “It will boost our logistics capacities in the Central Germany metropolitan region and of course in Leipzig/ Halle and enable us to help customers grow their business in Germany, Europe and internationally. It represents an important step with regard to the achievement of our strategic growth targets with customers from different industries and sectors.”

Dr. Judith Marquardt, City of Halle (Saale) Deputy Mayor for Culture and Sport, said: “The Star Park industrial park plays an important role in attracting renowned companies to Halle (Saale). This is underscored by the city’s renewed multimillion investment in the infrastructure of the Star Park site. Logistics is a powerful industry that will continue to play a key future role for the city and as an employer for the people who live here. DHL is a welcome partner for the region.
