Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Deutschland (CCEP DE) is to become the tenant of a logistics property in the Bockenem industrial park. This will be planned by the real estate company bauwo and built on Walter-Althoff-Strasse. The lease agreement between bauwo and CCEP DE was signed recently. Logistics activities are expected to start in the first quarter of 2025.
Storage capacity for more than 20,000 pallets of Coca-Cola soft drinks
"The planned property in Bockenem, with a floor area of approximately 24,000 m2, will have a storage capacity for more than 20,000 pallets of Coca-Cola soft drinks," said Holger Holthus, logistics manager at CCEP DE. "From Bockenem, we are strengthening regional deliveries to our customers, among other things." At the Coca-Cola site in Hildesheim Bravenstedt, investments have been made in modern production and filling technology for years. The resulting increase in production volume also requires more storage and loading capacities. Bockenem was chosen as an additional logistics location also because of its good transport connections to the production plant in Hildesheim. In future, the majority of the production volume in non-returnable deposit bottles from the plant in Hildesheim will be handled here. The logistics for the production volume in returnable deposit bottles is to be bundled at the Hildesheim site itself.
State-of-the-art technology for the new logistics hall
In future, the beverage deliveries can be assembled and the lorries loaded at 24 loading ramps. On average, about 130 trucks will be unloaded or loaded at the Bockenem site every day. CCEP DE plans to have the new building in Bockenem managed by a logistics partner. "To ensure that handling runs smoothly, together with our partner we rely on a digital system with which loading time windows can be booked," Holger Holthus emphasises. A large part of the processes within the warehouse are also to be organised digitally via a warehouse management system.
The rented external distribution warehouse in Baurat-Köhler-Straße in Hildesheim will be abandoned. Workplaces and business processes will then be relocated back to the site in Hildesheim Bravenstedt.
New logistics property will be DGNB Gold certified
The groundbreaking ceremony is planned for early 2024. The property will then be handed over to the tenant CCEP DE in spring 2025. Sustainability plays a special role for bauwo in the planning and construction of the logistics hall. The modern logistics building is to be certified DGNB Gold, which means that the property must meet certain sustainability criteria. The DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) evaluates various aspects such as energy efficiency, resource conservation, indoor climate and social responsibility. The certification confirms the high quality and sustainability of the building, which brings both ecological and economic advantages.
