Frasers Property Industrial has announced it has secured a lease for the property in the industrial park "An den Dieken" in Ratingen in central North-Rhine-Westphalia. The tenant moved into the space in early August. The transport logistics company HAAF Warehouse Logistics GmbH provides services in the automotive, chemical, building materials and packaging industries and is leasing two units at the Ratingen site.
The facility offers 11,728 square metres of space for warehouse and logistics use, 1,409 square metres of office space and 540 square metres of mezzanine space. In addition, 46 car parking spaces are available to employees onsite.
The site borders the urban areas of Düsseldorf, Duisburg, Mülheim and Essen. Due to its central location within the Rhine-Ruhr region, the Ratingen site managed by Frasers Property Industrial offers convenience close to good infrastructure. A direct link to the A524, A52 and A3 freeways connects the German border with the Netherlands in the northwest. The nearest train station is Duisburg-Rahm, which is located five kilometres west of the property. Düsseldorf International airport is 15 kilometres to the south and a 15-minute drive away. Due to its proximity to the ARA ports (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp), the region acts as an inland hub for the international transport of goods, resulting in its popularity with industrial wholesalers.
Alexander Heubes, Managing Director Europe at Frasers Property Industrial, welcomes the new lease: "We are pleased to be able to provide HAAF Warehouse Logistics GmbH at our location “An den Dieken” with excellent infrastructure. With our growing industrial portfolio in choice locations across Europe, we are also improving our ability to offer customers with available space on short notice.”
Timo Böhm, Head of Sales and Marketing at HAAF Warehouse Logistics GmbH, said, "On our continuous growth path from freight forwarding to being a pan-European transport-related contract logistics provider. Frasers Property Industrial’s warehouse, logistics and office space in Ratingen allows us to deepen our range of services."
Volker Werner, Managing Director at JAS Forwarding GmbH, said: “Our vision of being the global, local forwarding service provider is strengthened by this partnership with the well-established HAAF, as we pursue our growth targets in a new office with warehouse in Ratingen and serve our customers with exceptional service.”
HAAF Warehouse Logistics will offer warehousing and distribution services for various goods and commodities from this location.
The property at “An den Dieken” is owned by Frasers Logistics & Commercial Trust and managed by Frasers Property Industrial.
