Munich Airport’s new logistics centre has begun operations today (19 January), and features “new generation” storage technology.
As well as combining the warehousing capacities of the Flughafen München (FMG) group, the facility offers warehousing space to external companies in a total area of 24,000sq m.
The logistics centre includes facilities such as a 300sq m deep freeze store designed for temperatures as low as -20°C and a 100sq m ‘fresh goods’ cold warehouse cooled to a temperature of 4°C.
It also features a high-bay warehouse with space for more than 5,600 pallets and a fully automated small parts store with around 32,000 containers. Part of the store is temperature-controlled to enable the storage and transportation of temperature-sensitive goods.
“We are delighted that we have completed the new logistics centre on schedule despite the current difficult circumstances,” said Munich Airport CEO Jost Lammers.
“This means that the airport will be ideally equipped to ensure that the entire flow of goods will be efficient and sustainable in future.”
