Mercedes-Benz Trucks has started construction of a new logistics centre, the Daimler Truck Global Parts Centre, in Halberstadt, Germany.

Gradual commissioning of the building is planned from 2025.

“This is the biggest logistics project in our company’s history,” said Daimler Trucks’ Joerg Howe.

Around 2,600 suppliers will provide the hub with parts.

The new hub will supply 20 regional logistics centres worldwide which in turn will ship to dealers.

The company said it would create 450 jobs at the site initially with potential for up to 600.

The facility will have electric heat pumps and underfloor heating systems to minimise CO2 emissions.

Photovoltaic systems will be installed on the roofs, which could generate up to 13m kWh of electrical energy annually. The company said surplus energy would be offered to other Daimler Truck locations in Germany.
