With high ambitions for the coming years, Logicenters has strengthened its position in the Nordic region with two important new recruits. In Sweden, Carl Johan Enegren has joined as a Business Analyst and in Denmark, Mads Fjeldhoff has strengthened the team as a Transaction Associate.
Logicenters is a leading provider of modern logistics properties in the Nordics with a presence in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Investments continue to be made in the organisation, with the company strengthening its position by welcoming two new recruits, one in Sweden and one in Denmark.
Carl Johan Enegren has been recruited as Business Analyst at Logicenters’ Swedish office. He has a background in real estate and has previously worked as a property valuer at JLL. With expertise in analysis and strategy, Carl Johan will now work on preparing for future investments, business plans and developing marketing materials. He will support the entire business process from initial customer dialogue and market analysis to closed investment. In parallel with this, he will also work with business development and Logicenters’ proactive work to stay one of the leading providers of modern logistics facilities in the Nordic region.
Mads Fjeldhoff has been appointed Transaction Associate at Logicenters in Denmark. He will develop business opportunities and be involved in acquisition and lease negotiations. Mads has experience in the industry and has previously worked in market analysis and property valuation at Sadolin & Albæk (now Colliers). From there, he moved to the investment team at ATP Real Estates. While there, he was involved in a number of major transactions, including the acquisition of half of Danica’s shopping centre portfolio.
“I am incredibly proud to welcome Carl Johan and Mads to Logicenters. We need their expertise in order to fulfil our ambition of always remaining ahead of our competition, working proactively with tenants and developing Logicenters’ platform. These two recruits have already become two important assets in our team and they will definitely contribute new perspectives,” 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.

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.
Logicenters will host a seminar at Logistik & Transport in Gothenburg.
