The automotive and spare parts industries as well as the electronic sector are strongly represented here. The region’s attractiveness leads to a high scarcity of suitable sites.

Availability of sites

Due to the scarcity of sites companies in need of a logistics location have to make some compromises or move to the hinterland, for example along freeway A8 Munich-Karlsruhe, freeway A81 in Ludwigsburg or to the southern part of the rural district of Böblingen.
