Volkswagen Group to establish new auto part packaging center in Wilhelmshaven
The decision has been made: from 2019, auto parts for the Volkswagen Group are to be packed and prepared for the delivery to countries such as Mexico, China and the USA at the Jade-Weser-Port in Wilhelmshaven. With the new packaging center, the Volkswagen Group is reacting to the growing demand for vehicles on overseas markets. As a result, more and more parts such as headlamps, audio systems or steering wheels need to be exported for local production. The Volkswagen Group has selected a new location near the Jade-Weser-Port for a facility to pack these new volumes.
