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.
This spring saw the groundbreaking ceremony take place for Logicenters’ modern 14,872 m2 cross-dock facility outside Copenhagen in Denmark. It was subsequently announced that Bring Danmark would lease just over 70 percent of the property. However, it has become clear that Bring is expanding and will lease the entire facility.
In February 2019, an agreement was signed between Logicenters and Bring Danmark regarding the leasing of 11,160 m2 of logistics space in a modern cross-dock facility in Greve, Denmark. Groundbreaking for the new facility took place the following month. It has now become clear that Bring will be leasing the property’s total area of 14,872 m2 instead of the previously announced area. As a result, the company is expanding its logistics space at the property by just over 30 percent.
“It is gratifying that Bring’s investment in e-commerce has yielded such good results that even before the completion of the logistics facility, it is expanding its logistics area. For Logicenters, it is important to be able to anticipate our customers’ future needs in order to meet them when they arise. This is evidence that our flexible business model supports our customers in their growth”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The modern cross-dock facility will have a clear environmental profile and will be equipped with solar cells on the roof. Sorting will be possible in two stories as the building will be around 12 metres high. The safety of the employees is also prioritised with the construction of a footbridge from the car park to the office. The facility is under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
“We are delighted that the demand for our e-commerce venture has exceeded our expectations, resulting in the need to expand our logistics area. Logicenters has been very accommodating in meeting our logistical needs and requirements for sustainability. As a tenant, it certainly feels secure to have Logicenters as the property owner”, says Jens Rom, Managing Director at Bring Danmark.
Since May 2018, Logicenters has been developing a new logistics facility just outside Copenhagen. At the time development began, a lease was also signed with Havi Logistics, which have moved into 4,500 m2 leaving 8,900 m2 available for another tenant.
Logicenters’ new logistics facility at Vejleåvej 11 in the industrial district of Winthersminde outside Copenhagen has now been completed. A lease was signed with Havi Logistics back in May 2018 when the development was beginning. The lease is for a logistics area of 4,500 m2 and comprises freezer, refrigerated and traditional storage. Havi Logistics has moved into the property, which has a total area of 13,400 m2. This means that there is still 8,900 m2 of modern high ceiling logistics space available for a new tenant.
“We have cooperated closely with Havi Logistics throughout the development process to ensure that its needs have beenfully met. At the same time, we have succeeded in constructing a generic facility complying with modern specifications so that the facility can also be adapted for tenants wishing to move into the remaining 8,900 m2. It is a strategic position for us to develop a state-of-the-art facility and the property is part of our investment in increasing our presence in the Copenhagen area,” says Mikael Sahlin Olesen, Asset Manager at Logicenters.
Yesterday marked the start of the construction of Logicenters’ new property in Greve, Denmark. The cross-docking facility is scheduled for tenant hand-over in 2020.
Logicenters has now broken ground on a new construction in Greve, a suburb to Copenhagen. The development is one of the first modern cross-docking facilities of its type; an added height of the building will enable two-story sorting and a 2,000 m2 mezzanine level will be fitted out as offices, future proofing the property for the long term.
”Logicenters strives to always be at the forefront of this type of property development and the facility’s specifications display the characteristics of a modern logistics facility. We are proud to be building a cross-docking facility that will reflect the logistics of tomorrow, especially in an important hub such as Greve”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
The facility will have a clear environmental profile and will be equipped with solar panels on the roof. Also, the safety of the employees is highly prioritised with the construction of a footbridge leading people from the car park to the mezzanine offices while avoiding any pedestrians passing the lorry terminals. The tenant, Bring Danmark, will be leasing the majority of the facility.
Logicenters announces that it will develop a 14,872 m2 modern logistics property near Copenhagen in Denmark. With almost 12 metres to the roof, this modern cross-docking facility will enjoy added flexible specifications for future use. The property is scheduled to complete in 2020, at which point the tenant, Bring Danmark, will move in its operations.
A new 14,872 m2 modern logistics property will be completed by Logicenters in April 2020 at Ventrupparken 4 in Greve, a suburb to the Danish capital, Copenhagen. The majority of the building has already been leased to Bring Danmark. The facility will be particularly visible as it’s positioned adjacent to the busy E20 motorway leading in to Copenhagen and further in to Sweden.
Due to the added height of the building of almost 12 metres, it will be possible to do two-story sorting and a 2,000 m2 mezzanine level will be fitted in as offices. The facility is also being built with the long-term aim to be able to adapt to future logistics needs, for example by using it as a warehouse.
The facility will have a clear environmental profile and will be equipped with solar panels on the roof. Also, the safety of the employees is highly prioritised with the construction of a footbridge leading people from the car park to the mezzanine offices while avoiding any pedestrians passing the lorry terminals.
“We look forward to moving into the new and modern premises which have been adapted in line with both our environmental profile and our major investment in online shopping. The new logistics facility strengthens our position as one of the most important logistics companies in the Nordic region,” says Jens Rom, Managing Directorat Bring Danmark.
“We are incredibly proud to build a facility that reflects the logistics of the future in Greve. The solar panels, the footbridge and the facility’s height are just some of the characteristics of a very modern logistics facility. Logicenters strives to always be at the forefront of this type of property development and it is great that Bring is also part of this journey,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at 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.
