Nu stärker Logicenters portföljen på den finska marknaden. I Kerava, strax utanför Helsingfors, ska Logicenters nu utveckla en logistikanläggning på totalt 18 300 m2. Ett tioårigt hyresavtal har tecknats med hyresgästen Dachser som hyr en yta på cirka 4 600 m2. Fastigheten beräknas stå färdig under 2020.
Som ledande utvecklare, ägare och förvaltare av logistikanläggningar i Norden utvecklar Logicenters nu en fastighet i finska Kerava. Den 18 300 m2 stora fastigheten ligger i Kerca logistikområde, strax utanför Helsingfors, och beräknas stå färdig under Q3 2020. Byggföretaget Lehto Tilat Oy ansvarar för uppförandet av fastigheten. Ett tioårigt hyresavtal är tecknat med logistikaktören Dachser avseende en 4 600 m2 stor yta som består av 4 000 m2 cross dock-område och 600 m2 kontorsområde.
Logicenters nya anläggning är belägen på en strategiskt viktig plats i Helsingforsregionen, med närhet till internationell flygplats och motorvägen E75. Närheten till tågstationen Savio möjliggör dessutom goda pendlingsmöjligheter till Helsingfors. I linje med Logicenters ambition att energieffektivisera sina fastigheter, kommer logistikanläggningen att utrustas med solceller på taket samt använda sig av geotermisk värme.
”Det gläder oss att utvecklingen i Kerava är igång. Området är attraktivt på grund av sitt strategiska läge, goda kommunikationer samt konkurrenskraftiga hyresnivåer. Därför är det glädjande att kommunen satsar på logistik. Vi har sedan tidigare en mycket god relation till Dachser, vilket gör det extra roligt att få att påbörja den här utvecklingen tillsammans med dem,” säger Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Director på Logicenters i Finland.
”Den moderna terminalen i Kerava, liksom närheten till hamnen i Vuosaari och järnvägen, erbjuder en utmärkt logistiskplats för Dachser, både idag och i framtiden. Dessutom kan vi tillhandahålla en mängd tjänster för finska export- och importföretag på den inhemska marknaden. Det flexibla samarbetet med Logicenters och staden Kerava gör det möjligt för oss att fortsätta vår tillväxtresa, som började för vår vägtransportsverksamhet 2014 i Finland,” säger Tuomas Leimio, Managing Director, European Logistics Finland, DACHSER Finland Oy.
”Keravas strategi innefattar ett starkt engagemang att hjälpa företag att växa och frodas i området. Logistik är en av de viktigaste branscherna i vår moderna ekonomi. Den nya logistikanläggningen kommer att utveckla Keravas logistik-zon och öka Keravas attraktivitet som helhet för företag. Anläggningen kommer även att skapa dussintals nya jobb, vilket är helt fantastiskt,” säger Kirsi Rontu, borgmästare i Kerava.
Den nya logistikanläggningen har för närvarande cirka 13 000 m2 ledigt för framtida hyresgäster som vill etablera sig i ett av de bästa logistikområdena i Helsingfors storstadsområde. Anläggningen har redan väckt intresse bland ett flertal verksamheter
Nu har Logicenters och Axfoods inköps- och logistikbolag Dagab signerat ett avtal avseende utveckling och uthyrning av en logistikanläggning på drygt 100 000 kvm i Bålsta. Dagab blir långsiktig hyresgäst i anläggningen som blir en av Europas största. Fastigheten blir miljöcertifierad, 30 meter hög och får moderna specifikationer så som högautomatisering och flera temperaturzoner.
I mars 2019 tecknade Logicenters en avsiktsförklaring med Dagab, Axfoods inköps- och logistikbolag, avseende utveckling och uthyrning av en logistikanläggning i Bålsta. Nu har parterna signerat avtalet som utöver utvecklingen innebär det för Logicenters enskilt största hyreskontraktet i Sverige.
”Det är ett otroligt utvecklingsprojekt där Logicenters utökar fastighetsportföljen med en stor, modern och miljöcertifierad anläggning utöver det vanliga. Vi är stolta över förtroendet från Axfood och utvecklar en fastighet i ett toppläge för att de ska kunna utöka sin verksamhet. Vi har ett gott samarbetet med Dagab och ser fram emot en fortsatt givande och långsiktig relation”, säger Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head på Logicenters.
Logistikanläggningen blir med sina drygt 100 000 kvm en av Europas största och mest moderna för distribution av livsmedel till såväl butik som e-handel. Fastigheten får en unik höjd på 30 meter och ska rymma kylt-, fryst och tempererat laget med högautomatisering. I linje med Logicenters strategi kring hållbarhet och energieffektivisering får anläggningen en hög miljöcertifiering och dessutom planeras en solcellsanläggning på taket.
Fastigheten placeras strategiskt på adressen Håbo Lundby 2:8 strax utanför Bålsta, nordväst om Stockholm. Med närhet till E18 och Stockholm är det ett attraktivt läge. Dessutom går stickspår från järnväg hela vägen in på markområdet, vilken kan underlätta infrastrukturen för transporter framöver. Logistikanläggningen ska vara i drift 2023 och kommer även innebära många arbetstillfällen.
”Vi är mycket glada över att nu vara ett steg närmare starten av byggnationen av vårt högautomatiserade logistikcenter. Med den nya logistiklösningen kommer vi att bli både effektivare och mer flexibla i att möta utvecklingen inom dagligvaruhandeln. Genom att vi i den nya anläggningen kan lagerhålla ett ökat sortiment, leverera snabbare och mer hållbart, stärker vi vårt kunderbjudande”, säger Nicholas Pettersson, vd för Dagab.

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.
CBRE has served as a consultant to Logicenters regarding the leasing of the 12,000 m2 area to Thomas Cook Travel Retail at Kronan business park.
Logicenters continues to strengthen its portfolio in the Danish market by the acquisition of a 17,400 m2 facility in the attractively located logistics hub of Brøndby. The current tenant Mediq Danmark A/S will retain its business in the property.
As a leading owner and developer of modern logistics facilities in the Nordic region, Logicenters continues to strengthen its portfolio by acquiring a 17,400 m2 property in Brøndby – a strategically important location in close proximity to Copenhagen.
The acquisition of the property at Kornmarksvej 15 in Brøndby contributes to the existing relationship between Logicenters and the tenant Mediq. The two have a long-standing corporation in Finland with Mediq as a valued customer, and with Logicenters’ acquisition of Kornmarksvej the relationship is further strengthened.
“We are delighted with the acquisition in Brøndby, as it is a strategically located asset in an area with bright prospects. We are also looking forward to expanding our cooperation with Mediq in Denmark, which is an existing customer in Finland”, says Anders Østergaard Hansen, Investment Manager at Logicenters.
“We were pleased to learn that the future landlord of our headquarters in Denmark is a long-term owner like Logicenters, and we look forward to working with Logicenters in the future”, says Ulrik Rokkedal Therkildsen, Managing Director at Mediq Danmark.

Logicenters has signed a ten-year contract with Systembolaget for the lease of a modern logistics facility in Brunna Logistics Park. The property is under development and is scheduled to be ready for occupation during the second quarter of this year. The facility will have a total area of 24,000 m2 and Systembolaget will lease a large proportion of this.
Logicenters welcomes Systembolaget to Brunna Logistics Park, north of Stockholm. The 24,000 m2 property will consist of high-bay racking, mezzanines and offices, and Systembolaget will utilise a large proportion of the space. Brunna Logistics Park is located directly alongside the E18 motorway and close to the E4, which is an ideal strategic location for Systembolaget’s warehouse.
The construction, which is being undertaken by Logicenters, is already in full swing and is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of this year. Systembolaget is expected to get access to its new and modern facility in Brunna Logistics Park on June 1 this year.
“We look forward to working with Systembolaget and supporting its continued efforts to increase customer satisfaction. This will be a facility with modern specifications and high standards. In order to meet Systembolaget’s stringent environmental requirements, we will also jointly review the options for installing solar panels”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
Attractive space available at Brunna Logistics Park
Logicenters has been present in Brunna Logistics Park since 2017 and it has turned out tobe an important location for the company. The tenants include Zalando and Bythjul Norden and soon Systembolaget. There is still space available for lease in the newly developed facility.
“We are now signing our fourth customer at Brunna Logistics Park and even though the properties are filling up quickly, there is still space available in the facility currently under construction. The great interest in our properties shows that the investment in Brunna has been successful”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
Logicenters and its tenant Zalando have won the Logistics Establishment of the Year 2018 award at the largest transport and logistics fair in the Nordic region. The award is presented by Intelligent Logistik.
In autumn 2018, Logicenters completed the development of a 30,000 m2 logistics facility. The project, owned by Logicenters, has now been selected as a winner at the largest transportation and logistics fair in the Nordic region. Its optimal location in the municipality of Upplands-Bro, just outside Stockholm, the environmental certification according to Green Building and optimised floor space with mezzanines on three levels have enabled the logistics facility to meet the award criteria.
The award is presented by Intelligent Logistik and aims to highlight a facility which meets a real need, is innovative and a smart solution from the perspective of flow for users and customers in its choice of logistics location, is energy efficient and provides the lowest possible environmental impact and is a workplace that safeguards the well-being of its employees.
The jury’s motivation:
“Zalando’s facility in Brunna is a step in the logistics chain that has a clear starting point to improve service for its customers. The location in Upplands-Bro is ideal for serving customers in both the Nordic region and Stockholm region with fast delivery. The design of the warehouse with three levels is a new concept which we are likely to see more of in the future – especially in Stockholm where land is expensive and difficult to access. Both the aesthetics and the logistics solution of the warehouse are at the forefront of how e-commerce warehouses will be designed in the future. Both the facility and the solution are examples of excellent interaction between cargo owners, logistics operators and property partners.”
“It feels great that this project gets attention. The development took place during an extremely busy time, but thanks to outstanding cooperation with both Zalando and Ingram everything went according to plan. Due to the Logicenters creative team we also managed to support Zalando’s growth with a temporary facility during the period,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Commercial of Logicenters.

FREJA Transport & Logistics A/S has operated from the facility in Høje-Taastrup since 2004. A new lease has now been signed between Logicenters and FREJA to extend this cooperation for a further 15 years. Additionally, the property is currently awaiting new upgrades.
The lease has now been extended between property owner Logicenters and tenant FREJA. Since 2004, the transport and logistics company has operated from the property in Høje-Taastrup in Denmark. The new agreement means that FREJA will stay until 2033, an extension of 15 years. In addition, a part of the 15,929 m2 facility will be upgraded to handle pharmaceutical products, including fitted with a new heating and cooling system.
The facility is located at Litauen Allé 6 in Høje-Taastrups TransportCenter, 15 km from Copenhagen. FREJA Transport & Logistics A/S supplies and stores goods, such as pharmaceuticals, to customers who place high demands on transport as well as warehouse logistics. Furthermore, the facility it is one of FREJA’s international cross dock locations in Denmark.
“FREJA is a key customer for Logicenters, which makes us extremely proud to extend our cooperation. We strive to be a strategic partner to our tenants and understand the importance of offering flexible facilities with modern specifications. Hence, the scheduled upgrade of the property FREJA uses,” says Mikael Sahlin Olesen, Asset Manager at Logicenters.
“We’ve always been very happy and proud of this location, and since approximately 6,000 m2 logistics warehouse needs upgrading to handle pharmaceutical products, it makes sense to conclude this agreement with Logicenters. An owner we always have had a good and developing cooperation with, and in this 15 year agreement we have built in an exit clause that gives us the degrees of freedom we as a Group Concern in growth always seek and wants to cover,” says Ulrik Rasmussen, FREJA Denmark’s CEO.
The new property built by Logicenters for Speed Group in 2018 is now to be expanded. The logistics facility will be a total of 83,000 m2 in size, equivalent to 12 football pitches. Located in strategic Viared, the environmentally-rated facility will become one of the largest in the Nordics and an important project for all the parties involved.
In just nine months, Logicenters completed a 38,000 m2 property for Speed Group in Viared, just outside Borås. This autumn, work will begin on a significant expansion to the building. A total of 45,000 m2 will be added, meeting Speed Group’s continued need for more logistics capacity. Located on Prognosgatan, the logistics facility will be half a mile long and well signed along the R40 main road.
– It is great for us to begin the development of what will ultimately be our largest facility by far. It will be larger than Globen is in volume, as well as being located in one of Sweden’s best logistics locations. This is the sixth property we have developed here in Viared and we are continuing to invest here because we have an excellent relationship with the city of Borås. They are fast-paced, forward-looking and invests a great deal in the industry, which is important considering the continued need for logistics, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head, Logicenters.
Focus on growth and environment
Speed Group is in a growth phase and is leasing the entire logistics facility. The company estimates that five major customers will fill what will become an 83,000 m2 facility and that around 200 jobs may be created as a result of the expansion. The decision was also driven by the environmental aspect. By investing in a large facility within the logistics hub represented by Viared, internal transport is reduced. The property also has an environmental classification from Green Building.
– Every investment in our property portfolio must drive both continued growth and environmental perspectives. This property will become Speed Group’s primary logistics facility, something which is made possible well-established collaboration with both Logicenters and the city of Borås. Together, we managed to keep to a tight schedule for the first stage and now it is going to be great fun to expand. There is a positive working climate between all parties and together we will develop something outstanding for Borås, says Peter Nilsson, CEO, Speed Group.
Major investment in Viared industrial park
To date, this development with Logicenters and Speed Group is the largest project the city of Borås has worked on. The industrial park continues to grow as a logistics hub in Scandinavia and the city of Borås has been actively working to facilitate the processes. Recently, the municipality received the Årets Klättrare award from the Swedish Construction Federation, recognising its improvement through the year.
– We have been working hard to simplify and speed up the process of Logicenters’ further development, just as we do with all projects. The first stage went smoothly and with stage two, this development has become the largest project we have worked on. This will of course guarantee continued good growth with investment and jobs in the future, says Daniel Göök, Establishment Manager, Commercial Division in Borås City.
