Opened at the start of the year, Europa-Park’s impressive new €10 million logistics centre now handles all deliveries coming into the German tourist attraction.
Constructed on the area of the former staff car park, the 8,000 sq m warehouse receives items such as food & beverage, shopping, games, marketing, central purchasing and human resources, all under one roof.
There is space for up to 2,000 pallets, a 1,400m-wide area for storing small items and a large refrigeration and freezer area. An area has already been reserved for supplies in relaiton to the new waterpark being built across the road from Europa-Park.
New offices and meeting rooms as well as a bus stop for the employees have also been built during the course of the construction. The new logistics centre has created jobs for around 100 employees.
“The construction of the logistics centre is an important step in the future development our family business,” says Europa-Park’s Jürgen Mack. “It is an investment in our company employees, our infrastructure, and our guests.”
Located in Rust near Freiburg, part of the Black Forest, Europa-Park is Germany’s no.1 amusement park with over 5 million annual guests. As well as launching a double flying theatre this season (project-v.eu), it also opened a 6,000 capacity live entertainment arena in January. The development never stops!
