The internationally active logistics specialist, Rhenus, has signed an agreement to rent 9,900 square metres of logistics space at the “SEGRO Logistics Centre Leipzig”. Rhenus Archive Services will in future use this facility to store the business documents of its customers operating in all kinds of sectors in Germany.

The warehouse area occupied by Rhenus now rises to 31,000 square metres through this new space.

The internationally active logistics specialist, Rhenus, has signed an agreement to rent 9,900 square metres of logistics space at the “SEGRO Logistics Centre Leipzig”.

The “SEGRO Logistics Centre Leipzig” offers Rhenus Archive Services adequate operating space to store the archive materials. Rhenus will in future use the space there for its tamper-proof file administration work and document archives. “The new, central high-security archives in Leipzig once again significantly increase our warehouse capacity for storing archive materials for our customers in Germany,” says Till-Martin Schuldt, one of the Managing Directors of Rhenus Archive Services. The archiving specialist stores the archive materials in special filing boxes on storage systems that have been adapted for them. The companies, which put their archive materials into storage at the new business site, benefit from the high security measures, certified processes and the highest quality standards.

The logistics property in Leipzig is characterised by its sustainable design: overall, SEGRO uses energy-saving LED lamps to light up an area measuring 53,000 square metres. The facility also has excellent infrastructure connections. Located very close to the BMW factory and the Leipzig Trade Fair area, the business site has direct access to the A14 motorway, which makes it possible to reach both Leipzig/Halle Airport and the A9 motorway in a few minutes by car. Thanks to the bus stops nearby, the logistics property is also connected to the local public transport services in Leipzig.

With Rhenus as a new customer, all the logistics and business space has now been fully leased at the site. “Rhenus Archive Services complements our existing portfolio of customers at the site in an excellent way. We’re happy to have found a suitable customer for the existing space in the shape of the logistics specialist and we’re looking forward to working together in future,” says Melanie Merholz, the Associate Director Development Logistics at SEGRO in Germany. JLL acted as the agent in securing the tenancy agreement with Rhenus.
