New location in Hungary
Logistics company Fiege has built a new single-user center for zooplus SE. Near the capital Budapest, Fiege says it will provide warehousing as well as value-added services on approximately 41,000 square meters of logistics space.
According to Fiege, more than 500 employees are expected to work at the logistics center by the end of 2024. Currently, 220 workers are employed there, he said. As Gergely Hepp, Managing Director of Fiege’s Central Eastern Europe business unit, indicates, the site in Hungary is the second logistics center opened for Europe’s leading online retailer of pet supplies.
“The central location and the capabilities of the logistics center enable us to deliver our customers’ orders even faster and offer them the best possible service,” commented Christian Neumayer, the Vice President Fulfillment & Quality at zooplus SE.
Fiege takes over logistics tasks
As Fiege further reports, the company will take over the receipt of goods, quality controls, warehousing via order picking, packaging as well as dispatch preparation for zooplus at the new location. For this purpose, the logistics center will be equipped with ergonomic conveyor technology and industrial trucks.
Furthermore, skylights in the roof and energy-saving LED lighting will ensure the best possible working conditions. The logistics center also has an earthquake-proof shelving system. Furthermore, it is equipped with an increased floor load capacity as well as a fire load capacity according to the standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), he said.
“Thanks to our interdisciplinary team, we have the necessary expertise to develop highly specialized logistics properties for our clients that meet the requirements, depending on the industry and the assignment,” says Kai Alfermann, the Managing Director at Fiege Real Estate.
