Hellmann to move into new office, ambient and controlled-temperature warehousing, international air and ocean facility at Auckland Airport

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics is pleased to announce that Auckland Airport Ltd is to design and build it’s new head office, ambient and controlled-temperature warehousing and international air and ocean logistics facility at Auckland Airport.

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics is one of the world’s leading privately owned global logistics providers. Founded in 1871 in Germany, the fourth generation family-owned company has an active network of over 19,000 people in 443 branches in 157 countries.

The 15,000 square metre infrastructure consisting of high bay ambient warehouse, multi-zone cold chain warehouse, enclosed drive through canopy and two story office complex will occupy the prominent site on the corner of George Bolt Memorial Drive and Landing Drive and will be completed in the third quarter of 2015.

Simon Robertson, Auckland Airport’s chief financial officer, says, “We are delighted to have attracted such a high quality tenant and we are committed to creating a building of high architectural quality for them on what is the main road to and from the airport.”


Chris McCagney, Hellmann New Zealand’s managing director, says, “our owners, Jost and Klaus Hellmann, have committed Hellmann globally to a very high bar in terms of service excellence, quality, innovation and environmental care. This development ticks all the right boxes.”

“The move to this unique facility at Auckland Airport will bring together the ambient and controlled-temperature operations of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics and Hellmann Perishable Logistics in Auckland onto a single prime site, increasing our agility, operating efficiency and capacity for growth.”

“We are also investing directly alongside Auckland Airport here. The warehousing and international air and ocean logistics facility will incorporate a significant investment by Hellmann in environmentally friendly and energy efficient controlled-temperature infrastructure. This reinforces our commitment to many of New Zealand’s leading exporters and importers”.

“Our people are looking forward to relocating to the new facility in 2015 and to the benefits this will bring to our customers.”
