Are you looking to expand your business operations in Germany? Renting a warehouse can be a game-changer for businesses seeking efficient storage solutions and seamless logistics. Germany, with its robust infrastructure and strategic location in Europe, offers a plethora of warehouse options tailored to meet your specific needs.

1. Location Matters

> You can use our location analysis to find suitable business locations for your new warehouse.

2. Size and Specifications

Determine the size of the warehouse based on your inventory volume and operational requirements. Modern warehouses in Germany come equipped with advanced facilities, such as climate control, security systems, and loading docks. Assess your needs to find a space that aligns with your business goals. Questions to ask:

  • What size do I need to store my products and to operate?
  • What minimum ceiling height do I need?
  • How many loading docks and doors do I need?
  • Do you need a warehouse with office space?

3. Budget Considerations

Understanding your budget is key to finding the ideal warehouse. Rental costs vary based on location and amenities. Research thoroughly and request quotes from multiple providers to compare prices. Remember to consider additional expenses like utilities and maintenance in your budget planning.

Buy or rent a warehouse?

Should I buy or rent a warehouse? If you are faced with this question, our advantages and disadvantages matrix will help you make a decision.

  Advantages Disadvantages
Rent
  • You remain flexible and can react faster and easier to changes.
  • You have good planning security if you link the rental period to a supply contract (e.g. in contract logistics).
  • You do not have high investment costs and therefore less risk.
  • With existing properties, you have a time advantage, as planning and construction times are no longer necessary.
  • You can move into an existing property or let a project developer develop a suitable property for you, which you then rent (only for large projects).
  • Manufacturing companies can focus on investments in their core business.
  • You can deduct the rental costs from tax.
  • Your rent payments do not have a positive impact on the balance sheet.
  • You can only adapt your rented warehouse to a limited extent to meet your individual requirements.
  • In the event of early termination of the rental agreement, high compensation payments may be due.
  • You have to pay VAT on the rental of warehouses.
Purchase
  • Your warehouse has a positive impact on your balance sheet as an asset. You can write off three percent a year.
  • Large logistics properties in good locations are often part of investment funds and can be sold on good terms.
  • You can build your warehouse according to your ideas and needs.
  • Since you are not tied to any rental period, your own warehouse offers a high level of planning security.
  • The construction of a warehouse for your own use usually is a high investment. For companies in the manufacturing industry, this reduces the financial scope for investments in the actual business area (e.g. R&D).
  • In the event of structural changes or a change in the market situation, having your own property can reduce the company's flexibility. However, large logistics properties in attractive locations can often be sold quickly and on good terms.
  • Buying commercial land in a good location can be difficult. From the perspective of many municipalities, warehouses require a lot of space and often do not generate the desired number of jobs and trade tax income.
