Airbus Defence and Space has opened a new logistics center in Bremen, Germany, the company announced Wednesday.

About $56 million will be invested in project planning, development and operation of center-related efforts through 2024, the company, a division of Airbus Group, said in a statement.

The 32,000-square-foot facility, located in Bremen's Lloyd Industriepark, is close to the airport and will help meet increasing civil and military demands, the company said.

It was established in conjunction with K├╝hne + Nagel.

The center will initially be used mostly for A400M aircraft production.

In the future it is poised to taken on space applications as well.

The location offers excellent road, rail and air connections, the company said, and can be operated by about 100 employees.

It replaces three old warehouses and will harmonize and streamline processes while allowing Airbus Defence and Space to meet increasingly complex requirements for punctual and continual delivery to production lines.
