Wayfair plans to open a new logistics centre in the German town of Lich (Hesse) in May, according to a report in the daily newspaper "Gießener Allgemeine". The online retailer for home furnishing products, headquartered in the US, aims to expand its business operations in Germany from there. The new main German distribution centre covers around 95,000 m2; the groundbreaking ceremony took place in autumn 2019. The existing Wayfair locations in Kassel and Hammersbach are to be integrated into the new logistics centre by the end of the year. According to the supplier, this measure is a reaction to the rapid growth on the European market.
