High million investment, a ground-breaking ceremony in spring sunshine, praise for the state government: These dates are according to the taste of all of the campaigning politicians. Accordingly, in a good mood, Brandenburg's Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) on Monday afternoon in a commercial area in Ludwigsfelde (Teltow-Fläming) on the southern outskirts of Berlin, to celebrate with representatives of the logistics group, Deutsche Post DHL and party friend Andreas hedgehog, the mayor of the city, the official Start of the construction work for the largest parcel centre in the company.
After its completion in the coming year and in full operation, planned early to mid-2021, each hour can be sorted to up to 50,000 parcels and packages. It will be the nation's largest and most modern plant of this type. So far, the Post operates only in the Hessian Obertshausen near Frankfurt / Main and soon, on the former Opel factory in Bochum, comparable to the large sorting centres. 35 of these centres there are a total of nationwide.
About 600 new jobs
Around 100 million euros, the Bonn group is investing in Ludwigsfelde, about 80 million of them will be in the development of approximately 20 football fields large plot of land and the construction of the U-shaped building with still 37,000 square meters of space (approximately five football fields).

Woidke welcomed, particularly the intention that DHL wants to "set a whole range of highly qualified and full-time Employees". "I do not believe that this investment is only for Ludwigsfelde important, but for the whole of the Land of Brandenburg", he added. Overall, the "Mega-package center" around 600 people work. Brandenburg would like to get to be a country, "in which all the a Chance and here's to your Façon happy can be," said Woidke.daily mirror people for Free order
is Open, however, how quickly the company finds these employees. In Ludwigsfelde even hardly, as mayor hedgehog made it clear. "It is a great challenge is to organize the necessary professionals here". The unemployment rate was record-low two percent, already today, about 3000 people would be down to the employers in the municipality - including the aircraft engine manufacturer MTU - commuting as there are people in the working age.
And in the booming neighboring municipalities such as Schönefeld, the situation is similar: The labour market is more than empty, the new Postal employees must, therefore, come from Outside - also from Berlin. It had already been in discussions with the local Federal employment Agency, said Post-representative.
The lack of qualified staff could be the biggest Problem of this project: The current transport infrastructure currently allows a convenient Commute to this area of Ludwigsfelde. The industrial Park "At the Eichspitze North" at the B101 close to the southern Berliner ring (A10) is not reached via the road network, with public transport. Currently, a half-hour walk to the regional train station Ludwigsfelde-birch reason would be necessary, and it can be reached in 17 minutes to the Berlin train station Südkreuz. "Without the Expansion of public TRANSPORT, it will not go," said Igel. "Mr Prime Minister, I am counting on the support of the country".
access to the new parcel centre is problematic
Woidke it, heard said later in the conversation, but only partly responsible. "We are not able to invest. This is primarily a matter for the Deutsche Bahn,“ he told the daily mirror. He referred to the traffic concept 2030, which had decided his state government together with the state of Berlin. And how important it was for the whole Land Brandenburg transport to connect technically - not only the surroundings of Berlin.
As the German Post DHL connect your new "Mega-package center" (self-description) want to make it as a place of work Berlin is Berlin's attractive, remains to be seen. The existing parcel centres in Rüdersdorf East of Berlin Börnicke on the North-Western edge of the city are utilized more as well. By five to seven percent per year, the package grows in volume due to the withholding the change in the shipping trade.
With the new centre in Ludwigsfelde, the Post office wants to improve the Service in the capital region. Private and business customers will be able to deliver by 2021 their shipments later in the day, and still can expect that it will be delivered on the next day, it said. "You are right here," said Woidke his hosts in Ludwigsfelde. Of them are also convinced that the currently perceived. Thus, this assessment has also after start-up inventory of the center, but still had work to do.More about
