Trade – at light speed

Perdata, a renowned IT brand, is now part of the Bertelsmann Group. Leipzig is the competence centre for the energy industry.

Trade has made Leipzig famous and bestowed wealth on the city in the past. Trade is synonymous with change and over the past few years numerous e-commerce companies have settled in Leipzig, creating a number of "new" jobs. Amazon established its second-largest German centre here in 2005, and the Berlin-based second-hand dealer Momox has also taken over around 80,000 m² of the former Quelle-Zentrum, which has now been largely assigned to new use. Leipzig is also the home of a range of specialist mail-order companies, such as Taschenkaufhaus or Spreadshirt.

In the IT sector, the software company Comparex AG, owned by the Austrian Raiffeisen Group, stands out with 1800 employees in 29 countries. Leipzig is also home to numerous other specialist software developers such as the S+P Group, Pro Soft Krippner GmbHitCampus Software as well as Systemhaus GmbH and Perdata-Arvato.
