The municipality of Großbeeren on course for growth
The municipality of Großbeeren is evolving – in several directions. Voted family-friendly, Großbeeren is recording a continuous increase in both population and employment. In order to secure the town's commercial and residential future, the municipality is investing in business parks and in particular in the Freight Village GVZ Berlin South, which is being expanded in two stages. The GVZ has existed for over 20 years. Located in the "heart of Europe", it offers companies ideal infrastructure conditions. Well-known companies have already discovered this potential for themselves.
One of Europe's top 10 freight villages
Großbeeren's freight village is located in the district of Teltow-Fläming, five kilometres from the southern border of Berlin, and around 15 kilometres from the state capital Potsdam. Strategically and conveniently located at the intersection of major European transport routes, over the past few years it has developed into the largest freight village in East Germany and ranks among the top 10 freight villages in Europe. It thus offers optimal conditions for distributing goods in the capital region and consolidating nationwide and pan-European transports. The GVZ primarily accommodates logistics and wholesale companies as well as industry-related service providers. These include well-known companies such as Rhenus Logistics, DB Schenker, Deutsche Post DHL, Fiege and the distribution centres of well-known retailers – names that testify to the exceptional quality of the site.
Thanks to its versatile infrastructure, GVZ Großbeeren on the one hand makes an important contribution to the processing of commercial traffic in the capital region, and on the other acts as a key element in European transport chains. One aspect to its infrastructure is the on-site connection to Deutsche Bahn's Berlin-Leipzig-Munich high-speed railway line and the Berlin railway loop. Air traffic routes, too, can be used, with the proximity to the Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) being another key location factor. The site is also superbly connected to the road network: In addition to two direct connections to the four-lane B 101, it is also close to Berlin's orbital motorway (A 10).
Site and plots
In total, the site covers an area of 180 hectares. Currently there are 80 investors on the site. Not least thanks to the the development of additional hectares there are still plots available. Developed plots with varying layouts are available in sizes ranging from 3,000 to 200,000 square metres. As all public utilities are already present on the site, there are no additional connection costs. The site includes an intermodal terminal. Another advantage is that there are block train services to German seaports and to Russia.
