Mercedes-Benz Trucks is building a central logistics hub for the global supply of spare parts.

The Daimler Truck Global Parts Center, being built inHalberstadt, Saxony-Anhalt, is the biggest logistics project in the company’s history.

The start of construction was officially celebrated with the laying of the foundation stone. The gradual commissioning of the building is planned from 2025.

Around 2600 Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ suppliers will provide the logistics hub with their parts in the future, making Halberstadt the heart of the global supply of spare parts for Mercedes-Benz Trucks.

In a three-stage logistics process, the new location will serve around 20 regional logistics centers worldwide – in, for example, various European countries, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Brazil and China – which in turn will supply regional dealers with parts.

In the first stage of expansion, the new building in the East Industrial Park in Halberstadt will have a gross floor area of around 270,000 square meters with around 260,000 square meters of logistics space. Up to 450 qualified jobs will be created on site.

After further construction stages and the assumption of additional activities in connection with global parts logistics, up to 600 jobs will be created at the site.
