Prologis Core Market Germany

Why is Germany A Core Market for Prologis?

Its location, infrastructure and industry make Germany a logistics hotspot - both in Europe and globally. Manufacturing companies, international brands and logistics providers rely on our well-located facilities in highly developed distribution markets. The need for high-quality logistics space in Germany is huge, thanks to the country’s strong economy and high concentration of manufacturers. In addition, Germany’s prosperous population of more than 82 million consumers is driving rapid growth in e-commerce. Logistics is the third-largest economic sector in Germany after the automotive industry and trade.

We develop distribution sites to meet our customers’ needs. Our team in Germany, located in our headquarters in Dusseldorf, has deep knowledge in all fields of logistics real estate: engineering, architecture, project and property management.

Long-term partnerships are an important goal for us. Because we provide the best individual site solutions and the best property management service, many leading global and local companies choose to work with Prologis in Germany. We make it a priority to provide excellent support for our customers after they move into their new Prologis facility.
