Geelen builds unique distribution centre in Eindhoven

UPS distribution centre

It is not the enormous size (approx. 40,000 m2) that makes the UPS distribution centre built by Geelen Vastgoed & Bouw so remarkable. No, this new-build project, acquired by tender, is a unique automated parcel sorting centre.

Three ancillary buildings are connected to the sorting centre and include restaurants, changing rooms and offices. There is also a separate office building as well as several outbuildings, including a car wash, workshop and tank island. The total surface area of the site is 148,000 m².
