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.
Logicenters has welcomed a new tenant to its property in Arlandastad – VeddestaGruppen. The facility, which was completed earlier this year, has a total area of 25,000 m2. This move has enabled the tenant to combine all its operations under one roof.
In the spring of 2019, the groundbreaking ceremony took place for Logicenters’ 25,000 m2 logistics facility at Uppfinnarvägen 4 in Arlandastad, just north of Stockholm. The property’s tenant, VeddestaGruppen, has now just moved into its new property. The new facility now accommodates all four of the Group’s subsidiaries – Veddesta Distribution, Veddesta Transport, Multi Logistik and Bemanningsstrykan.
“We are delighted to welcome VeddestaGruppen to its new property and to accompany it on its journey. They have moved into a modern property in a prime location with all the prerequisites for operating an efficient logistics business. The area around Arlanda Airport has attracted many established logistics companies. We are confident that VeddestaGruppen will thrive in its new home,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
With its proximity to the E4 motorway, Arlanda Airport and the Ostkustbanan railway line, the property has a prime location. Arlandastad is a fast-growing logistics hub with direct proximity to Stockholm and the Mälaren region, making the area very attractive with excellent conditions for logistics operations.
“The move to Arlandastad is something which fills us with great confidence. Combining all our companies under the same roof is something we strongly believe in. Our new property is located in a very attractive location and will further strengthen the services we offer. We are more than ready to start the next chapter in VeddestaGruppen’s story and would also like to take this opportunity to thank Logicenters for its outstanding collaboration,” says Jonas Eriksson, CEO of VeddestaGruppen.
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.
Logicenters, NREP, has announced the purchase of further land in Vestby, Norway. This time it is a substantial land plot of 100,727 m². This latest acquisition means that Logicenters now owns land for development totalling 128,000 m² in the area. Ground preparation is currently in progress, and the logistics property company predicts that the first property can be ready for tenants in the beginning of 2022.
Logicenters is continuing to establish in strategic logistics hubs throughout the Nordic region. The logistics property company has now acquired a substantial land plot at Toveien 21 in Vestby Næringspark, just south of Oslo. The site was purchased from the investment company Ferd Eiendom.
Logicenters is already well established in the area. Since 2016, Logicenters has purchased 130,000 m² of land and developed facilities totalling 56,000 m² in Vestby, including a new development of 12,000 m² which is scheduled for completion in early 2021, and during this spring, the logistics property company acquired additionally 27,000 m² of land with a potential footprint of ca 70%. With the latest land acquisition of just over 100,000 m², Logicenters has now secured its position for ongoing development in the logistics park. The ground conditions at the newly acquired plot should be of excellent quality, which is key for logistics facilities with high load bearing requirements.
“Vestby is a very attractive logistics cluster for many companies. It is therefore important that we strengthen our presence in the area in order to develop more high-quality facilities for modern logistics operations. We have been very successful in Vestby and this new land acquisition will allow us to continue developing and renting out logistics properties to companies with high demands, positioned at the forefront of their industries. This acquisition will enable us to offer properties for both large and small tenants. We look forward to welcoming our first tenants in early 2022,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Vestby Næringspark is located in Oslo’s southern logistics corridor. The business park has an optimal strategic location for warehousing with its close proximity to the E6 motorway and Oslo. Logicenters’ latest land acquisition is one of the few large-scale development areas with direct proximity to both the E6 motorway and Oslo.
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 har indgået en aftale med Nordens største TPL-operatør, PostNord TPL, om at opføre og udleje en 35.000 m² topmoderne, miljøvenlig logistikejendom i Køge. Ejendommen forventes at stå klar til indflytning i efteråret 2021.
“Vi er glade og stolte over at udvide vores samarbejde med PostNord. Vi ser det som et bevis på, at vi tilbyder attraktive og moderne logistikejendomme i topklasse og er overbeviste om, at PostNord vil trives i det nye anlæg. Aftalen viser samtidig vores fulde kompetencer, idet vi selv vil være entreprenører ved opførelsen af den nye ejendom”, siger Matthias Kettelhoit, chef for Logicenters.
Logicenters er frontrunnere inden for udviklingen af bæredygtige logistikejendomme med lavt CO2 og lavt energiforbrug. Den nye ejendom vil derfor blive opført med stort fokus på bæredygtighed og blive BREEAM-certificeret efter strenge internationale miljø-standarder. Blandt andet vil bygningen blive forberedt til at kunne bære et fuldt solcelleanlæg på taget, som vil kunne dække hele ejendommens energiforsyning.
“Vi har haft en positiv, hurtig og professionel dialog med Logicenters gennem hele aftaleprocessen, og vi er trygge ved at have med en samarbejdspartner med lang og solid erfaring til at etablere effektive logistikejendomme”, siger Håkan Lindberg, ceo for PostNord TPL A/S i Danmark.
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 recently completed its modern cross-dock facility in Greve, just outside Copenhagen. It will now work together with tenant Bring in Denmark to install a 1,950 m² solar cell plant on the roof of the facility. It is estimated that the solar cells will generate around 300,000 KWh of power annually.
In early 2019, groundbreaking took place for Logicenters’ modern cross-dock facility at Ventrupparken 4, Greve, outside Copenhagen, and the almost 14,000 m² facility has recently been completed. As a further step in strengthening the property’s environmental profile, Logicenters is now working with the tenant Bring in Denmark to install solar cells on the roof. In total, the solar cells will cover a roof area of 1,950 m² and it is estimated that they will generate around 300,000 KWh of power annually.
“Climate investment is extremely important to us and we always strive to be at the forefront of developments in sustainability. That is why we are proud to now be installing a large solar cell plant on our property in Greve. We are also pleased that Bring in Denmark shares our ambitions for sustainability and we look forward to making this investment together,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Last year, Logicenters joined RE100 through NREP. RE100 is a global coalition committed to 100 % renewable energy. During the same period, energy audits were also conducted at several of Logicenters properties, with the results showing great potential for savings. By streamlining energy consumption at the properties, energy costs could be reduced by up to one third.
“Bring has ambitious environmental goals, working to be fossil-free in all our operations by 2025. Working with Logicenters to install Bring’s largest solar cell plant to date was therefore a natural progression for us. The facility will enable us to use direct solar power for our transport as we are also investing in electric vehicles for our distribution network,” says Jonas Olsson, facility manager at Bring in Denmark.
The solar cells on the building’s roof will have an electrical capacity of 354 KWp. The installation is being carried out by Better Energy and is scheduled for completion by the end of Q3 2020. Earlier this year, construction also began on the Nordic region’s largest rooftop solar cell plant at one of Logicenters’ logistics facilities just outside of Gothenburg, Sweden.
Logicenters has now, for the second year in a row, won first prize in the Real Estate Brand Award competition, which was announced at the end of last week. The competition ranks more than 1 000 brands within the European real estate industry. In the category “Nordic Developers Logistics”, the award for the strongest brand among developers of logistics properties went to Logicenters in first place.
The Real Estate Brand Awards was arranged for the twelfth year in succession this year. The participating brands compete in various industry-specific categories, with one category consisting of Nordic region brands.

The value of all of the factors that companies are ranked by is totalled to a weighted index, the Brand Value. Logicenters achieved a Brand Value score of as high as 90.03, with 100 being the highest value.
“We are very happy to once again have won this award, which is an acknowledgement that all our hard and careful work has been noticed in international circles. Modern logistics properties that are developed with a great sustainability focus by a tight-knit and competent team is our recipe for success, and every one of us at Logicenters should take credit for this achievement. We would also like to thank the European Real Estate Brand Institute for the prestigious award,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
