New Logistics Center Goes into Operation at Munich Airport

New Logistics Center Goes into Operation at Munich Airport

  • 24,000 m² of warehouse space under one roof at the airport
  • Fully automated small parts store
  • 300 m² area for frozen goods
  • Also warehousing capacity for external companies at the airport

A new generation of storage technology goes live at Munich Airport: Around a year and a half after construction began, the new high-tech logistics center at the airport went into operation today. From now on, the warehousing capacities of the airport’s retail subsidiary Eurotrade, the catering subsidiary Allresto and Flughafen München GmbH (FMG) will be combined under one roof in the building in the northwestern part of the airport site.

The total area of the logistics center including external storage areas is around 24,000 m², meaning that the complex also has sufficient capacity to offer warehousing space to companies outside of the FMG Group. The building itself is 113 meters long and 76 meters wide and covers an area of around 15,000 m². It includes facilities such as a 300 m² deep freeze store designed for temperatures as low as -20°C. In addition, the building features a 100 m² “fresh goods” cold warehouse cooled to a temperature of 4°C and a high-bay warehouse with space for more than 5,600 pallets. The logistics center also boasts a fully automated small parts store with around 32,000 containers, part of which is temperature-controlled to enable the storage and transportation of temperature-sensitive goods.

The product range of Eurotrade alone comprises more than 70,000 items that are delivered to around 50 shops at the airport. As a result, Eurotrade is the “main user” of the new warehouse. Goods that are intended for the airport’s secure area can be transported there directly following the prescribed check in the building.

CEO, Jost Lammers, said:

“We are delighted that we have completed the new logistics center on schedule despite the current difficult circumstances. This means that the airport will be ideally equipped to ensure that the entire flow of goods will be efficient and sustainable in future.”

 

The new logistics center is operated in an energy-efficient and climate-friendly way thanks to innovative LED lighting technology and a photovoltaic system. The fact that trucks will no longer have to travel between the airport and the warehouses that were previously used in Freising and Schwaig also helps to improve the CO2 balance.
