We are very satisfied with both the smoothness of the whole process and the result, which seamlessly combines the three things that are important to us: efficient logistics, sustainable development, and high-quality architecture. Our new Turku premises are tailored to our needs and enable us to continue our fast-growing e-commerce operations as well as possible,” says Teemu Kiiski, founder and CEO, Finnish Design Shop.

Logicenters is scheduled to take possession in the first quarter of 2022, which is also when ODA will move in.

They also value efficient logistics solutions from producer to end customer, something we are confident we can provide with our new and future-proof facility. We look forward to a long and successful collaboration”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The new facility also has a clear sustainability profile, including a solar panel installation expected to generate approximately 1.1 GWh of renewable electricity per year. The property is also located in a geographically strategic location in the region, something which Logicenters values highly when acquiring or developing properties.
“The Oslo region is an important location for us, given the area’s great position, high population density and growth. The new facility is located alongside the E18 motorway, 30 km outside the Oslo city centre. As ODA focuses heavily on efficient last-mile distribution, the geographical position of the distribution centre is ideal for fast and efficient deliveries to consumers”, says Ruben Krantz Kringstad, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
The facility is ODA’s second distribution centre in eastern Norway and is designed for a high turnover of goods and to meet the requirements for efficient delivery to customers in the region.
“The fact that we are now establishing a new warehouse in the Oslo region is very inspiring. We are pleased that Logicenters, which focuses on development and long-term ownership of logistics properties, will be the new owner of our facility when Eneo Eiendom has completed the development. We look forward to a good collaboration in the future”, says founder and CEO Karl Alveng Munthe-Kaas at ODA.
The property is being acquired from a number of shareholders and the deal has been led by Eneo Eiendom, which is the project manager for the development and sale of the facility.
“It has been a very exciting process and ODA is an ambitious company that has set high standards for how the property should be designed and adapted to optimise its operations. We believe that Logicenters is a perfect partner for ODA and we look forward to handing over the property in March 2022”, says Morten Hotvedt, CEO at Eneo Eiendom.

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.

It is also gratifying to see that our tenants share our sustainability ambitions”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
