Logicenters har købt et 160.000 m2 jordstykke i Skandinavisk Transport Center i Køge. Handlen er indgået med Køge Kommune, og salget er en del af kommunens udvidelsesplaner af det eksisterende transportcenter. Transportcenteret er et af Danmarks største og vil nu vækste yderligere i takt med, at Logicenters etablerer sig i området.
Logicenters udvikler og ejer moderne logistikfaciliteter i Norden. Med købet af byggejord i Køge ser Logicenters nu frem til at vokse yderligere i Øresundsregionen. Jordstykket på 160.000 m2, som er købt af Køge Kommune, er en del af de langsigtede udvidelsesplaner for Skandinavisk Transport Center. Logicenters forventer at bygge omkring 70.000 m2.
”Øresundsregionen er en enormt konkurrencepræget og voksende region. Vores tilstedeværelse i Køge er vigtig for at styrke Logicenters’ position som en ledende aktør på logistikmarkedet i Norden. Det ubebyggede jordstykke giver os mulighed for at kunne imødekomme potentielle lejeres krav til en moderne logistikejendom, og vi kommer til at arbejde tæt sammen med lejerne om at udvikle og skræddersy ejendommene. Vi glæder os over, at Køge Kommune er opmærksom på disse muligheder, og lader os investere i området”, fortæller Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Nærheden til København og Malmø gør Skandinavisk Transport Center til en strategisk beliggenhed for logistik- og transportvirksomheder, særligt fordi E20, E55 og E47 passerer gennem Køge. Den nye station, Køge Nord, ligger tæt på jordstykket og giver gode muligheder for pendling til og fra København. Desuden ligger Køge Havn, med en ideel beliggenhed i Østersøen og adgang til de baltiske lande, blot tre kilometer fra området. I fremtiden styrkes området yderligere af den nyligt påbegyndte Fermern Bælt-forbindelse, som vil forbinde Køge med Tyskland og resten af Europa.
”Her i Køge har vi gennem årene satset på at udnytte vores helt unikke beliggenhed, tæt på København og med nem adgang til resten af Danmark. Det har bidraget til at skabe en kommune i vækst, og en kommune, der er stærkt på vej til at etablere sig som Sjællands kraftcenter. Det er glædeligt, at vi nu kan byde velkommen til en ny, stor spiller på banen i form af Logicenters. Når de rykker ind i Skandinavisk Transport Center bliver det bare endnu mere tydeligt, at fremtiden ligger i Køge”, siger borgmester Marie Stærke.
“Køge er og har i mange år været en ideel placering for logistikvirksomheder. Derfor vil Skandinavisk Transport Center byde varmt velkommen til Logicenters i Køge. Jordstykket egner sig perfekt til Logicenters’ fremtidige lejere, som vil blive en del af en voksende logistikpark på bedste beliggenhed med 1,5 millioner forbrugere i oplandet”, udtaler Thomas Elm Kampmann, CEO i Skandinavisk Transport Center.
Godshotel har indgået en aftale med Logicenters om pr. 1. september at overtage lejemålet af ca. 30 000 m2, logistikfaciliteter i Greve, syd for København, som hidtil har været benyttet af Flying Tiger.
Godshotel Lager & Transport er en hurtigt voksende aktør inden for lager, pakning og transport i Danmark, og virksomheden får med sin placering i Ventrupparken en attraktive beliggenhed kun 25 km. fra København centrum. Selve logistikejendommen er på to etager med et samlet areal 30.142 m2.
”At Godshotel har valgt at flytte ind i Greve understreger, at Logicenters forstår at udvikle og levere logistikfaciliteter i topklasse på attraktive adresser. Ejendommen i Greve har alle de egenskaber, som kræves for at drive moderne og effektiv logistik ikke mindst med en adresse tæt på E20 motorvejen og København. Vi glæder os til at kunne byde Godshotel velkomne”, siger Thomas Petersen, Commercial Manager, Logicenters Danmark.
”Vi har oplevet en meget stærk vækst, siden vi samlede vores aktiviteter i Greve, og det var naturligt for os at udvide yderligere i området, da vi fik muligheden. Vi har haft en god dialog og fået god rådgivning af Thomas Petersen og hans team i Logicenters og fundet en løsning, der passer os perfekt, ikke mindst fordi vi har kunnet sikre os muligheden for at udvide på grunden” siger Martin Dibbern, Logistikdirektør i Godshotel.
Logicenters, der udvikler og forvalter logistikfaciliteter over hele Norden, ejer yderligere to logistik ejendomme i Greve, hvoraf den ene er direkte nabo til Godshotels nye faciliteter, mens den anden ligger få hundrede meter væk på Greve Main. Derudover er Logicenters solidt etableret på Sjælland med adskillige ejendomme i Køge, Ishøj og Vallensbæk.
After signing a contract with one of the world’s leading logistics companies, Logicenters is now investing further in Eskilstuna Logistics Park. The lease with the logistics giant is initially for an area of 15,000 m2 and Logicenters is continuing its expansion with another 15,000 m2 in the area. Logicenters’ proactivity has been of key to its success in Eskilstuna. With its current expansion, Logicenters will own a total of 51,000 m2 of warehouse space in this area.
The new tenant is one of the world’s largest logistics providers with operations in more than 100 countries. It specialises in sea and air freight, contract logistics and land transport.
The global logistics company will be moving into the Logicenters property in Eskilstuna Logistics Park, located just outside Eskilstuna. Built on speculation, the property has modern specifications with a floor area of 15,000 m2 which is now being further developed in order to adapt it to the new tenant’s operations. In addition, Logicenters is expanding with another 15,000 m2 in the area – again on speculation.
“The fact that one of the world’s largest logistics companies chooses to move into our property is something we are very proud of. This also reinforces our belief that we are developing modern facilities in geographically attractive locations which appeal to leading global players within logistics. We have several new projects under process in Eskilstuna and we see a bright future in the area. Our ambition is to acquire additional land in the area and to continue the expansion. We are looking forward to welcoming more tenants to one of Sweden’s best logistics locations,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Eskilstuna Logistics Park has an area of 420 hectares and is strategically 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 Mälaren region and Stockholm. In addition to the developed area of 36,000 m2, Logicenters is now planning to build on a further 15,000 m2, giving it a total warehouse space of 51,000 m2. There is also an option for further expansion for the logistics property company in the area of just over 40,000 m2.This will facilitate expansion for both current and new tenants in the future.
“We are delighted that Logicenters is continuing its offensive expansion in Eskilstuna and that the international logistics company has chosen to invest here. This confirms Eskilstuna’s position as one of the country’s most expansive logistics areas, something which is key to the creation of many new jobs in Eskilstuna,” says David Hofmann, CEO, Eskilstuna Logistik och Etablering AB.
Logicenters’ strength has always been proactivity and expertise in acquiring key sites of land to establish in logistically strategic locations throughout the Nordic region. Logicenters specialises in modern logistics and develops properties which meet the high standards of quality, efficiency and flexibility required by world-class logistics companies.
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 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.
The web-based menswear store Care of Carl has now signed a lease with Logicenters. It will make the move to Logicenters’ facility in Viared, just outside Borås, in October 2020. Care of Carl will lease approximately 12,000 m2, equivalent to half of the facility’s capacity. This means that the remaining half of the property will be available for other tenants with the opportunity to move in during the autumn of 2020.
Borås-based company Care of Carl is to become a new tenant at the Logicenters facility in Viared. It is scheduled to move into the modern property, built in 2012, in October 2020. The building has technical specifications optimised for modern logistics operations and will be further adapted to the new tenant’s requirements. Of the almost 24,000 m² property, Care of Carl is leasing around 12,000 m², with half of the property’s floor area remaining available to other tenants.
“We are delighted to welcome Care of Carl to its new logistics property in Viared. It will move into a modern facility with all the specifications required to operate effective logistics. In addition, the property is located in one of Sweden’s best logistics sites. Care of Carl is an exciting company in the rapidly growing e-commerce sector and we hope that it will be very successful at its new property,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The property is located in a very visible site along the R40 main road. Its proximity to both Gothenburg and Jönköping means that the area is ranked as Sweden’s primary logistics area. The vicinity to Landvetter Airport also makes it very attractive to logistics companies.
“We are really looking forward to moving into our new logistics and office facility this autumn. The additional storage space will support our continued expansion while also enabling us to streamline internal processes. Being able to keep the warehouse in Borås, as both a strategic location and the company’s hometown, was a requirement for us and we are very pleased that we have succeeded in this. We are looking forward to working with Logicenters, a major player in the provision of logistics properties, with a strong base in the Borås region and a clear understanding of the needs of rapidly growing companies,” concludes Henning Källqvist, CEO and founder of Care of Carl.
Consultants Savills supported both parties in the negotiations.
“We are delighted that the deal with Care of Carl is completed. We are pleased to have contributed to this excellent solution for both parties,” says Rikard Lindkvist, head of Savills’ logistics team in Sweden.
Logicenters is continuing to strengthen its portfolio in the Finnish market. In Kerava, just outside Helsinki, Logicenters is currently developing a logistics facility with a total area of 18,300 m2. A ten-year lease has been signed with tenant Dachser to lease an area of around 4600 m2. The property is scheduled for completion in 2020.
A leading developer, owner and manager of logistics facilities in the Nordic region, Logicenters is currently developing a property in Kerava, Finland. The 18,300 m2 property is located in the Kerca logistics zone, just outside Helsinki, and is scheduled for completion in the 3rd quarter of 2020. Construction company Lehto Tilat Oy is responsible for construction of the property. A ten-year lease has been signed with logistics company Dachser regarding a 4600 m2 area comprising a 4000 m2 cross-docking area and 600 m2 of offices.
Logicenters’ new facility is located in a strategically important area in the Helsinki region, in close proximity to the international airport and the E75 motorway. Its proximity to the Savio railway station also provides excellent options for commuting to Helsinki. In line with Logicenters’ ambition to improve energy efficiency at its properties, this logistics facility will be equipped with solar cells on the roof and will utilise geothermal heat.
“We are delighted that the development in Kerava has begun. The area is attractive due to its strategic location, excellent communications and competitive leasing levels. Consequently, it is gratifying that the municipality is investing in logistics. We have previously enjoyed a very good relationship with Dachser, which makes it very pleasing to be entering into this development with the company,” says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Director at Logicenters in Finland.
“The modern terminal in Kerava, as well as proximity of the Vuosaari harbor and the main railway, provides an excellent logistical site for Dachser now and in the future. Furthermore, we are able to provide a multitude of services for Finnish export and import companies in the domestic market. The flexible collaboration with Logicenters and the City of Kerava enables us to continue our growth story, which began for our road transport business in 2014 in Finland,” says Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director, European Logistics Finland, DACHSER Finland Oy.
”In Kerava’s strategy, the City is strongly committed to helping businesses grow and thrive in the area. Logistics is one of the key industries in our modern economic environment. The new logistics facility will expand the Kerca logistics zone and will increase the attractiveness of Kerava for businesses as a whole. The facility will also create dozens of new jobs, which is absolutely fantastic,” says Kirsi Rontu, the Mayor of Kerava.
The new logistics facility has around 13,000 m2 still available for leasing by future tenants wishing to establish themselves in one of the best logistics zones in the Helsinki Metropolitan area. The facility has already raised interest among several industry organizations.
Logicenters and Axfood’s purchasing and logistics company Dagab have now signed a contract for the development and leasing of a logistics facility of just over 100,000 m2 in Bålsta. Dagab will become a long-term tenant at the facility, which will be one of the largest in Europe. The property will be 30 metres tall, have environmental certification and comply with modern specifications such as a high degree of automation and several temperature zones.
In March 2019, Logicenters signed a memorandum of understanding with Dagab, Axfood’s purchasing and logistics company, for the development and leasing of a logistics facility in Bålsta. The parties have now signed an agreement which goes beyond development to represent Logicenters’ largest lease in Sweden.
“This is a major development project where Logicenters is expanding its property portfolio with a large, modern and environmentally certified facility beyond the ordinary. We are very proud of the confidence Axfood is placing in us and the development of a facility in a prime position which will enable it to expand its operations. We have a successful collaboration with Dagab and look forward to a rewarding and long-term relationship,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
The logistics facility, with a capacity of around 100,000 m2, is one of Europe’s largest and most modern food distribution centres for both retail and e-commerce. The property will have a unique height of 30 metres and a high degree of automation which will ensure that the chilled, refrigerated and temperate zones are maintained. In line with Logicenters’ strategy regarding sustainability and energy efficiency, the facility will have a high level of environmental certification and there is also a plan to incorporate solar cells on the roof.
The property is strategically located at Håbo Lundby 2:8 outside Bålsta, northwest of Stockholm. The proximity to the E18 and Stockholm makes this an attractive location. In addition, railway sidings run all the way into the site, which will facilitate the future transport infrastructure. The logistics facility will enter into operation in 2023 and will also mean many job opportunities.
“We are very pleased that we are now one step closer to the start of construction on our highly automated logistics centre. This new logistics solution will enable us to become both more efficient and more flexible when it comes to future developments in the grocery trade. Being able to stock a wider range of products in the new facility will enable us to deliver faster and more sustainably, strengthening our offers to customers,” says Nicholas Pettersson, CEO of Dagab.
Real Advokatbyrå has provided Logicenters with legal consultation regarding the deal.
Logicenters has signed a new agreement with Skanska concerning the development and acquisition of a new property in Arlandastad. A modern logistics facility of 25,000 m2 is to be constructed with completion scheduled for the first quarter of 2020. The tenant Veddestagruppen will move in with all of the group’s four operations.
An agreement has been made between Logicenters and Skanska concerning a 25,000 m2 logistics facility in Arlandastad. The development is being undertaken by Skanska, and the property has been acquired by Logicenters. The property is scheduled for completion during the first quarter of 2020. The facility will have modern specifications and will be adapted to accommodate the needs of the tenant Veddestagruppen.
Arlandastad’s proximity to the international airport in Stockholm as well as both the E4 and E18 highways make the location an important logistics and transport hub. Logicenters has previously invested in another facility in the same area, which is now under development.
“We are happy to invest in another facility here, because Arlandastad is one of Sweden’s best logistics locations. It enables us to offer Veddestagruppen an optimal location for the facility as well as state-of-the-art specifications,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
“We are very pleased to be working with Logicenters on the development of the second phase of our property holding in Arlandastad. Overall, we are now developing more than 50,000 m2 of space in a very successful collaboration,” says Henrik Ahnström, Director of Project Development at Skanska Fastigheter Göteborg AB.
Can increase capacity by 50 percent
Veddestagruppen currently comprises the subsidiaries Veddesta Distribution, Veddesta Transport, Multi Logistik and Bemanningsstyrkan. The new facility will accommodate all operations, enabling the group to increase its warehousing capacity by up to 50 percent.
“As a result of Veddestagruppen’s growth, we needed to move to larger premises and Logicenters was able to offer the most attractive solution to meet our needs. We have previously operated in one of Logicenters’ properties, and the good relationship we have naturally contributed to us continuing to work with Logicenters as a partner,” says Jonas Eriksson, CEO of Veddestagruppen.
A facility in Landskrona marks the first step into the Skåne market for real estate provider Logicenters. A modern logistics facility featuring roof-top solar panels is to be constructed at the Kronan business park. The 24,000 m2 property is scheduled to be completed in 2020 and Thomas Cook Travel Retail will be the first tenant to move in.
As a market leader and developer of modern logistics facilities, Logicenters has a significant presence in logistics hubs in the Nordic region. The company is now establishing itself on the Skåne market via a new development on Företagsvägen in Kronan business park, an excellent logistics location in the Öresund region. The facility will be located in a very visible site along the E6 highway; companies such as Santa Maria and Oatly have been present in the business park for several years now.
“We are delighted to have found the right location for us in Skåne. Landskrona is investing heavily in logistics and we are positively inclined towards more projects here in the future. It is gratifying that Thomas Cook has chosen to work with us and we look forward to a long-term cooperation. For those who are looking for a good logistics site in the Öresund region, the other half of the property is still available,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
In addition to the facility’s modern specifications, solar panels will be installed on the roof, which is in line with Logicenters’ strategy on sustainability and energy efficiency. Construction begins immediately, and the facility is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2020. The tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail will utilise 12,000 m2 of the property’s total of 24,000 m2, divided into 10,000 m2 of warehouse space, a 1,500 m2 mezzanine and 500 m2 of office space.
“Our new location at Kronan business park will enable us to increase capacity for our online shopping service Airshoppen, from which our travellerscan pre-order their duty-free goods. Logicenters is an obvious partner because they are able to meet our high logistics requirements, including that the property is as energy efficient and sustainable as possible,” says Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager at Thomas Cook Travel Retail.
“We warmly welcome Thomas Cook to Landskrona. This once again demonstrates the strengths offered by Landskrona as a business location, with the city being attractive to various industries,” says Torkild Strandberg, Mayor of Landskrona.
