Breuninger is growing its logistics capacities
What: Breuninger invests in its distribution centre in Sachsenheim and expands its logistics on a large scale.
Why it is important: Breuninger's DC opened in 2019 spanning 76,000 square meters. Now they are adding around 40,000 square meters to the existing property.
Around 200 jobs will be created in the course of the expansion in warehousing, shipping, outgoing goods and product returns. This will increase the number of employees at the DC to around 1,700 in the future.
The DC was prepared for expansion options in order to be able to react to the growing online business. In recent years, Breuninger has successively opened up new markets and expanded its online business to other European countries – e.g., to Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland and most recently the Czech Republic – and new department stores opened in Munich and Luxembourg.
The construction of the extension of the DC will be carried out sustainably according to BEG-Standard 40. The extension will also be DGNB Gold-certified and the roof will be fully equipped with photovoltaic systems.
The DC includes goods processing, supplying stationary trade and online shipping, content production with a photo studio as well as the Breuninger confectionery and administration.
