Cologne, the fourth-largest city in Germany, is located in North Rhine-Westphalia, the most densely populated federal state. The region along the rivers Rhine and Ruhr is the largest conurbation nationwide and—with its 10 million inhabitants, about 1.08 million in Cologne itself—one of the 40 largest metropolises in the world.
Together with Bonn, Cologne is one of the most sought-after logistics locations in Germany and strategically important for the exchange of goods in Western Europe. North Rhine-Westphalia has the most closely connected network of highways, roads and rail in Europe. High-performance traffic junctions allow Cologne to have a frictionless flow of goods: Four freight harbors along the Rhine provide excellent conditions for strong inland navigation.
With the Cologne-Eifeltor railroad container terminal and the Cologne/Bonn airport, the metropolis at the Rhine is home to the most important hub for combined cargo and the second most important freight airport in Germany.
Prologis operates numerous industrial properties and warehouses in Cologne.
