AMB Property Corporation(R) , a leading global developer and owner of industrial real estate, today announced that it has leased 111,000 square feet (10,300 square meters) in an Amsterdam development project to Schenker, one of the leading international providers of integrated logistics services. Schenker will use the facility to consolidate operations following its recent merger with BAX Global, becoming part of the Transportation and Logistics Division of Deutsche Bahn AG.

AMB Fokker Logistics Center 3 is located in AMB Fokker Logistics Park, proximate to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol's main terminal and newest front line cargo operations. AMB has assembled one of the largest portfolios at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol with approximately 1.6 million square feet (148,100 square meters) owned or under development, serving customers including Agility, DHL and Menlo Worldwide. Schiphol is Europe's third largest airport as measured by cargo volume.

"In the tight Schiphol market, AMB was the developer able to quickly respond to Schenker's consolidation requirements for Class A air freight distribution space in close proximity to the airport. Combined, BAX and Schenker are one of AMB's top customers, now with 30 leases in 13 markets globally," said Guy Jaquier, AMB's president, Europe & Asia. "This transaction demonstrates AMB's ability to meet customer requirements as consolidation in the logistics industry creates new demand for highly efficient distribution space in key air cargo markets."

AMB's portfolio in Europe totals more than 9 million square feet (840,400 square meters) of facilities operating and under development, including air cargo projects at Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, Frankfurt International Airport, Madrid Barajas International Airport, and Brussels Zaventem Airport.
