Germany: Lidl administration and distribution center in Erlensee completed

Discount Retail Chain Lidl Germany (owned by the German Schwarz Group) completed the construction of Lidl's most modern and sustainable administration and goods distribution center in Germany. After just over a year of construction, Lidl's new administration and goods distribution center in Erlensee, Hesse, is ready to move into.

The building was constructed in accordance with the criteria of DGNB platinum certification and is expected to receive official certification this year. Fewer than ten logistics properties throughout Germany have so far been awarded this standard. The Lidl administration and goods distribution center in Erlensee is one of the most sustainable logistics properties in the country. The company uses state-of-the-art technologies for this standard: For example, a photovoltaic system produces around 1.2 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, the use of rainwater and service water minimizes drinking water consumption and only natural refrigerants are used. Lidl also relies on a sustainable concept for the distribution of goods: the stores are supplied exclusively with LNG trucks, which have significantly lower emissions than diesel trucks.

Complete commissioning of the site at the beginning of December

The move from the current location in Alzenau will take place step by step over the next few months. First, the logistics areas and IT are set up. In October, long-life goods and food will be delivered to the new location, where they will be stored until they are put into operation. The actual move takes place on the first weekend in December. From December 6th, all 80 stores of the Lidl regional company will be supplied from Erlensee.
