Logistics property company Logicenters is expanding its presence at Vestby logistics park through both acquisitions and new developments. Over the next few years, Logicenters expects to increase its property holdings to more than 140,000 m2 in the area, which will become an important logistics hub in Norway. The company has also recently signed agreements with several tenants at the park.
Logicenters is significantly expanding its presence at Vestby logistics park in the Oslo region. In the last year the company has acquired two sites, 100,000 m2 at Toveien 21 and 27,500 m2 at Stormåsan 42. A total of 87,500 m2 of property is currently under development in the mentioned sites. In addition, Logicenters is also in the final stages of developing a 12,000 m2 facility at Torvuttaket 22.
Logicenters’ tenants in Vestby include Prime Cargo, Barnas Hus and HeltHjem Nethandel AS. The latter is one of Norway’s fastest growing companies within packaging and online trade distribution and will lease part of Logicenters’ property at Torvuttaket 26 from June 2021. A lease has also been signed with an international freight company at Toveien 21.
“We are very confident that Vestby will become an even more important hub for imports, exports and e-commerce in Norway in the future. The area’s close proximity to the E6 motorway and its transport links as well as ports in Moss and Gothenburg are just some of the reasons why more and more companies will choose to establish a base here. And with HeltHjem Nethandel soon moving in, we also believe that there will be opportunities for increased synergies with other e-commerce companies who choose Vestby”, says Ruben Krantz, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
As one of the industry’s leading developers and the owner of modern logistics properties, Logicenters has great ambitions to bring about a sustainable transformation of the industry. As well as the option of installing solar panels on the roof, Logicenters has also decided to environmentally certify the new facilities in Vestby in accordance with BREEAM Very Good.
“We are striving to be a leader in the industry when it comes to the environment and sustainability. In collaboration with NREP, we continuously review the opportunities for working towards more sustainable construction while future-proofing our properties with renewable energy. It is also gratifying to see that our tenants share our sustainability ambitions”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Logicenters is also currently in talks with several companies regarding the leasing of the remaining logistics spaces currently under development.
The groundbreaking ceremony has now taken place for Logicenters’ 16,000 m2 facility in Køge, south of Copenhagen, Denmark. The property, which is being built on speculation, is being developed with a strong focus on sustainability and is scheduled for completion in early 2022.
In 2020, Logicenters acquired a 160,000 m2 lot of land at Skandinavisk Transport Center, a Danish logistics park in Køge, south of Copenhagen. The logistics property company is planning to develop facilities for a total of 68,000 m² at the park. The first phase has now been initiated with the development of a 16,000 m² logistics facility, which is being built on speculation and is scheduled for completion in spring 2022. In line with Logicenters’ ambitious sustainability goals, available options will include the installation of solar panels on the roof of the facility.
“We are delighted that the groundbreaking ceremony has taken place for our new property at Skandinavisk Transport Center. Køge is an extremely good logistics location with close proximity to the international airport, important motorways and ports. We look forward to welcoming our future tenant to a state-of-the-art and sustainable logistics facility in an optimal location in the Öresund region”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Its proximity to Copenhagen and Malmö makes Køge a strategic hub for logistics and transport, especially as the E20, E55 and E47 motorways all pass through Køge. In addition, the port of Køge is only three kilometres away, giving easy access to excellent marine transport via the Baltic Sea.
Logicenters is in the process of expanding one of its logistics facilities at the Brunna Logistics Park, north of Stockholm. The expansion involves an extension of 18,900 m2, with the new section scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2022.
Logicenters is continuing to establish and consolidate its presence at strategic logistics hubs. The logistics property company is now ramping up development by expanding one of its facilities at Brunna Logistics Park, where it has had a presence since 2017. Logicenters’ tenants at the logistics park include Ingram, Zalando, Systembolaget, Bythjul.com and Autoglas. The expansion is taking place at one of Logicenters’ modern facilities in Brunna and involves an extension in area of approximately 18,900 m2. The work is scheduled for completion by the spring of 2022.
“We are delighted to once again be expanding our presence in Brunna. This area is ideal for logistics operations, which is why we are now expanding our presence in the park. Our flexible working model allows us to support existing and future tenants with varying needs, for example through these types of speculative expansions. In addition to this expansion, we are also planning to develop another property totalling 30,000 m2 in the park soon”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Brunna Logistics Park is strategically located north of Stockholm and offers geographical advantages with a well-developed infrastructure of roads, railways and airports. This expansion is enabling Logicenters to further strengthen its presence in the area, and it will have close to 90,000 m2 of logistics space upon completion.
One of Sweden’s fastest growing health product companies has signed a lease with Logicenters to move into their upcoming state-of-the-art facility in Staffanstorp, Skåne. The parties have signed a seven-year lease for a 5,000 m2 area in Logicenters’ future property. The entire facility is scheduled for completion in early 2022 and First Class Brands of Sweden is expected to move in later that year. The remainder of the property, measuring as much as 20,000 m2, is currently being built on speculation.
Logicenters’ modern property in Staffanstorp, just outside Malmö, will be ready for its tenants at the beginning of 2022. The property, with a total area of 25,000 m2, has already secured its first prospective tenant, as Logicenters has now signed a lease agreement with the fast-growing health product company First Class Brands of Sweden. The lease is for an area of 5,000 m2 and the company is expected to move into its new premises in August 2022.
“We are delighted that First Class Brands of Sweden will be the first tenant in our upcoming modern property. It is great to be investing in Staffanstorp and First Class Brands of Sweden is an excellent example of a forward-looking company which has realised the value in the attractive location of the area,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The facility will be built on Västanvägen in Kronoslätts Logistics Park. With its proximity to Malmö and the Öresund region, the area’s geographical location is very attractive to many different types of companies. In the past, major companies such as Bring Frigo, Kuehne + Nagel and Microsoft have chosen to establish themselves in the logistics park. As First Class Brands of Sweden will move into one-fifth of the property, this means that the remaining approximately 20,000 m2 will be available for additional tenants.
“We are very much looking forward to moving into our new logistics facility, which will also be a perfect location for supporting our future growth and operations. I would like to thank Logicenters for its excellent collaboration so far and we will follow the development of what will become our new warehouse and head office in Sweden with great excitement,” says Felipe Garay, COO & partner at First Class Brands of Sweden.
Retail company and e-retailer Teknikmagasinet has announced that they will be moving into Logicenters facility in Eskilstuna Logistics Park. The long-term leasing agreement is for a 6,000 m2 area of the logistics property company’s facility. At the same time, Logicenters will continue to develop the property to accommodate additional tenants.
Teknikmagasinet, a Nordic consumer electronics and technical lifestyle products chain, has now signed a long-term lease with Logicenters. The lease agreement is for a 6,000 m2 warehouse space in the logistics company’s modern property in Eskilstuna Logistics Park, located on the outskirts of Eskilstuna. The facility is equipped to function as a central warehouse for both start-ups and existing retail companies and is adapted for a combination of store and e-commerce flows.
“We would like to warmly welcome Teknikmagasinet to our modern property in Eskilstuna and we are delighted that they’re moving in. Teknikmagasinet is an exciting company in the growing e-commerce sector and we look forward to closely following their expansion. I would like to thank Teknikmagasinet for their excellent collaboration and I’m convinced that they will thrive in their new warehouse,” says Fredrik Nygren, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
Eskilstuna Logistics Park consists of an area of 420 hectares and is located just outside Eskilstuna with direct proximity to the motorway, railway and airport. The geographical location of the logistics park provides excellent transport opportunities to Örebro as well as to the Mälardalen region and Stockholm. All of this contributes to optimal conditions for fast-growing retail companies and e-retailers. In addition, there is an opportunity for Logicenters to increase its presence even further in the region, which would enable for both current and new tenants to expand in the future.
“Our new warehouse gives us greater capacity and is optimised to handle our growing e-commerce business. It is also ideally located from a logistics perspective. Staying in Eskilstuna, where our current warehouse is located, was a stated goal as it would enable us to retain our existing staff and their expertise. In addition, it makes the move significantly smoother and minimizes the risk of disruption,” says Ulrika Göransson, CEO of Teknikmagasinet.
Earlier this year, Logicenters signed a lease with e-retailer and Borås company Care of Carl. The web-based menswear store is now moving into Logicenters’ facility in Viared, just outside Borås. Care of Carl has leased an area measuring approximately 12,000 m2, equivalent to half of the property’s floor space. Consequently, the remaining area is available for additional tenants.
E-commerce is currently breaking all records, with e-commerce companies experiencing almost explosive developments during 2020. The keys to Logicenters’ property in Viared, just outside Borås, have been handed over to web-based menswear store and Borås company Care of Carl, which is now moving into the property. The e-retailer’s new property has been equipped with all the technical specifications required for modern logistics operations. The facility’s technical solutions have also been adapted to suit the e-retailer’s operations.
“We would like to warmly welcome Care of Carl to its new property. We see that the growth in e-commerce has exploded this year, as it continues to play an even greater part in people’s lives. Therefore, we believe that Care of Carl’s new logistics facility will enable them to be well equipped for the future. The fact that the property is also located in one of Sweden’s best geographical locations for logistics is also beneficial. We are now looking forward to closely following a fast-growing and smart e-commerce company on its journey”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Geographically speaking, Viared has an ideal location for logistics. Its proximity to Landvetter Airport and the major cities of Gothenburg and Jönköping makes it very attractive to a range of different sectors – not least fast-growing e-retailers. The area is also ranked as Sweden’s main area for logistics. With Care of Carl moving into half of the property, this means that the other half – approximately 12,000 m2 – is available for additional tenants, with the opportunity for rapid occupancy.
“We are really looking forward to moving into our new logistics and office facility in Borås. The logistics premises have been perfectly designed according to our needs and the office premises have been completely renovated according to our wishes. E-commerce has continued to grow throughout the year, placing even greater demands on our internal processes, so it feels good that we now have access to a much larger warehouse space. With the move, we are ready to take our business to the next level, while at the same time continuing our operation in our hometown Borås, where our journey once began”, concludes Henning Källqvist, CEO and founder, Care of Carl.
Logicenters has acquired a 160,000 m2 site at the Danish logistics park, Skandinavisk Transport Center, in Køge to the south of Copenhagen. The land has been sold by Køge municipality and the acquisition has been undertaken as part of the municipality’s expansion plans for the existing logistics park. This logistics park is one of Denmark’s largest and it will continue to grow as Logicenters establishes itself in the area.
Logicenters develops and owns modern logistics facilities in the Nordic region. The logistics company is now looking to grow further in the Öresund region through the acquisition of a site in Køge, Denmark. The land has been sold by Køge municipality, with the site forming part of the municipality’s long-term expansion plans for the Skandinavisk Transport Center logistics park. The area is approximately 160,000 m2 in size, with Logicenters’ buildings scheduled to account for around 70,000 m2 of this.
“The Öresund region is an enormously competitive and growing region. Our presence in Køge is key to strengthening Logicenters’ position as a leading logistics player in the Nordic region. The undeveloped land gives us the opportunity to meet the needs of potential tenants for a modern logistics property. We will work with the tenant to develop and customise the property. We are happy that Køge municipality recognises the opportunities here and is allowing us to invest in the area,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The proximity to Copenhagen and Malmö makes the Skandinavisk Transport Center a strategic location for logistics and transport, especially as the E20, E55 and E47 motorways all pass through Køge. A newly built railway station near the logistics park also provides excellent options for commuting to and from Copenhagen. In addition, the port of Køge is only three kilometres away, ideally located on the Baltic Sea, in close proximity to the Baltic countries. In the future, the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link will also connect Køge to Germany and the rest of Europe.
“Here in Køge we benefit from our unique location in the vicinity of Copenhagen, and the easy access to the rest of Zealand. This has contributed to creating a growing municipality, and a municipality which is strongly on its way to establishing itself as Zealand’s power centre. It is with great pleasure that we can now welcome a new, great player, namely Logicenters. When they move into Scandinavian Transport Centre, it once again shows that the future lies in Køge,” states Mayor of Køge, Marie Stærke.
“Køge is and has been an ideal base for many years. That is why Skandinavisk Transport Center is delighted to welcome Logicenters to Køge. The site will be ideal for Logicenters’ future tenants who want to become part of a growing logistics park in the best location with 1.5 million consumers in close proximity,” says Thomas Elm Kampmann, CEO of Skandinavisk Transport Center.
Logicenters has now signed a lease with PostNord Oy in Finland. The lease includes the development of a 4600 m² parcel sorting facility in Kurikantie, Pirkkala. The facility is scheduled to be ready for occupation in early 2021 and will also include expansion options of 2000 m². The real estate developer is also planning to develop an additional 7000 m² warehouse onsite.
Logicenters is continuing to develop and expand its presence at strategic logistics hubs in the Nordic region. It has now signed a new lease with PostNord Oy in Pirkkala, Finland. In accordance with the lease, Logicenters will develop a 4600 m² parcel sorting facility in Kurikantie which is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2021. The facility will also be prepared for potential development on a 2000 m² extension. The logistics property company will also develop a 7000 m² detached warehouse onsite.
“It is great that such an established company as PostNord Oy is choosing to move into our upcoming sorting facility in Finland. The lease is an exciting commission where Logicenters will use its collective skills to develop a modern facility with a high environmental performance. We are confident that PostNord Oy will thrive in its new facility,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The ambition is to heat the facility using geothermal energy and that the electricity is to be supplied by solar power. Logicenters focuses on and is at the forefront of developing sustainable buildings with a low carbon footprint and reduced energy consumption.
“We are renewing our logistics network so that we can deliver shipments faster and more responsibly to the whole of Finland. With this solution, we will significantly strengthen our competitiveness and agility to operate in an ever-changing logistics market. We thank Logicenters for their flexible cooperation and we look forward to moving into our new property,” says Jani Ståhlhammar, COO at PostNord Oy in Finland.
Logicenters is now scaling up and expanding its presence in Vestby, Norway, with a new land acquisition in the area totalling 27,000 m². The logistics property player is then expected to develop a logistics facility of approximately 13,500 m² at the newly acquired site, which is centrally located in Vestby Business Park.
Logicenters is continuing to consolidate and expand its presence at strategic logistics hubs in the Nordic region. It has now acquired additional land at Stormåsen 42, in Vestby, just south of Oslo, Norway. It is expected that up to 70 percent of the 27,000 m² site will be built on as part of Logicenters’ investment in the further strengthening of its presence in Vestby.
“For Logicenters, not only is it important to establish ourselves in geographically strategic logistics hubs, but also to continue to strengthen our presence in these areas. This is precisely what we are currently doing with this land acquisition. Vestby is ideally suited for logistics and its close proximity to Oslo makes it very attractive to many companies. We are very much looking forward to being able to develop further high-quality logistics facilities in the area,” says Jens Petter Hagen, partner at NREP Norway.
Vestby is located in Oslo’s southern logistics corridor close to the E6 motorway and close to Oslo itself. Logicenters already has a presence in the area with a modern logistics property measuring 44,049 m², as well as the ongoing development of a 12,000 m² property which is scheduled for completion in early 2021.
Logicenters is now scaling up and preparing for further expansion at the Brunna Logistics Park. By acquiring 52,000 m2 of land, the logistics property company is strengthening its presence at the logistics park. The land acquisition will enable speculative construction of a new facility to begin in the latter part of 2020. The logistics facility is being built on speculation but will be able to accommodate and adapt to a number of tenants.
Logicenters is continuing to establish and consolidate its presence at strategic logistics hubs. This time it is through the acquisition of land in Brunna, north of Stockholm. The acquisition totals 52,000 m² in Brunna Logistics Park. Its proximity to Stockholm and to Arlanda Airport makes the area an excellent geographical hub for logistics. In addition, the new site is optimally located as it offers large and visible signage opportunities along the busy E18 motorway for the facility to be built on this land.
“This is precisely the type of investment that Logicenters should be making, which is why I am delighted that a major land acquisition has now been completed. Offering geographical advantages, Brunna Logistics Park is the perfect location for companies wanting to operate with modern logistics. This ensures our expansion in the area and we are looking forward to planning out a new modern facility which will be able to accommodate several tenants with differing requirements,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
As a result of this land acquisition, Logicenters is expanding its presence at the Brunna Logistics Park and now owns a total area of 148,115 m². The logistics property company has had a presence in the well-established logistics park since 2017. Once this facility is completed, Logicenters will have around 100,715 m² of leasable space. Its properties in the area already house companies such as Zalando, Systembolaget, Bythjul.com and Autoglas.
It is not yet clear who the tenants will be in the new facility.
