36 | Cluster Report I Transport, Mobility and Logistics – A Strong Location Logistics A World of Goods Flows – “The Future is Intermodal” Berlin-Brandenburg already has a top position in this sector and all signs are pointing to growth Dynamic Berlin-Brandenburg is one of Germany‘s leading logistics regions. Today, the location boasts a logistics infrastructure that guarantees an optimal supply to the entire metropolitan region. Strategically situated along three of the nine designated trans-European corridors, the region is connected to all European and Asian growth markets. The logistics sector in the capital region has developed into an impressive success story in recent years. With a total annual demand of 385,000 to over 400,000 square meters, Brandenburg and Berlin have established a position for themselves as one of the top German logistics regions. The Berlin-Süd transloading center (GVZ) in Großbeeren once again ranks as number 3 among all German GVZs. Companies such as Amazon, Rossmann and Zalando are expanding in the region. Active logistics locations The most significant transloading centers in the region are GVZ Berlin-Süd (Großbeeren), Berlin-West (Wustermark/ Brieselang), and Berlin-Ost (Freienbrink) as well as trimodal City GVZ Berlin-Westhafen in the center of Berlin. They provide outstanding logistics location factors and have brilliant development outlooks. These GVZs primarily function as suppliers to high density areas, but due to their proximity to the region’s traditional industrial locations such as Siemensstadt and Ludwigsfelde, they are ideal for industrial contract logistics providers and other specialized logistics services. The major airport of the future, BER, and the simultaneous development of the area surrounding the airport also hold great potential. The location expansion (Dachser) and inward investment (Unitax and Parexel) of renowned logistics companies at Schönefeld are also clear signposts for growth. And as a result of the commitment of logistics companies with international experience in seaport hinterland and Eastern European transport, logistics expertise is also taking root in parts of Brandenburg that are far away from Berlin, such as Falkenberg/Elster (BLG Railtec GmbH) and Wittenberge (Meyer & Meyer Logistikzentrum Wittenberge GmbH & Co.KG). Potential in the region With its first class universities, the capital region also leads in scientific expertise. The two universities with a special focus on logistics are Technische Universität Berlin with its four logistics chairs, e.g. for transport, for retail or for manufacturing logistics and Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau with the Transport Logistics research group and Brandenburg Technical University (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg, Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences, European University Viadrina in Frankfurt/Oder, the Berlin School of Economics and Law (HWR), Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin (HTW Berlin) and Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin also offer certified logistics expertise. The employment and skilled specialist situation in Berlin- Brandenburg is also very positive. A current study by the Fraunhofer Center for Applied Research on Supply Chain Services highlights the importance of logistics, and companies also have optimistic outlooks. They confirm that the logistics sector will continue on its course of dynamic development. Logistics companies are looking forward to positive growth in e-commerce (31.75%), transport to Eastern Europe (30.2%), the BER airport (24.3%) and the space available for inward investment in the logistics area (23.5%). Networking successfully LNBB – Logistics Network Berlin-Brandenburg– plays an important role in developing this focal area. It networks companies in the production, trade and services areas and provides them with a joint platform for current issues relating to infrastructure, logistics solutions and business models.
