Geodataset including 26.951 logistics buildings in the Netherlands larger than 500 m2, built before november 2021, as well as the business estates they are in, and the East-Southeast freight corridor of the Netherlands - the busiest logistics area of the country. The definition of logistics is rather broad, including trade, import, export, transportation and warehousing. Additional buildings with retail centres on industrial sites, as well as buildings with logistics co-activity are included. Manufacturing and recycling facilities, which often include logistics activities, are not included unless a separate logistics company is located in the building.

The dataset contains a Geopackage with equivalents in ESRI shapefile format. The buildings layer with attributes is also provided as a Geojson file and CSV data table (without geometry). Besides this README file, a method describing the compilation of the data is provided (Pdf).
