Location search for a logistics centre of an online beauty store

The challenge

Over 25% annual growth is something that many e-commerce players dream of and already a reality for a well-known German online beauty store. Of course, the company wants to continue on this growth path and needs new logistics capacities to achieve this.

Due to the range of products, only properties designed for the storage of substances hazardous to water (water hazard class (WGK) 3) are feasible. However, properties like these are hard to find and a new development is required. But before that, a suitable location must be found.
