Logicenters is expanding its cooperation with Axfood’s purchasing and logistics company Dagab. The parties have signed an agreement for the development and leasing of a logistics facility in Landskrona, Skåne. The 37,500 m2 facility is scheduled to be ready for Dagab to move into by the end of 2022.
Logicenters is continuing to expand its presence in the Öresund region. The logistics property company has now acquired a 96,000 m2 site, just west of the highway intersection Landskrona Södra, from the city of Landskrona. It has simultaneously signed an agreement with Dagab, Axfood Group’s purchasing and logistics company, for the development and leasing of a 37,500 m2 logistics facility to be built on the newly acquired site. This facility will become Dagab’s new national fruit and vegetable warehouse and is scheduled to be ready for occupation in the final quarter of 2022. The facility will be the second developed by Logicenters for Dagab. The first is a more than 100,000 m2 logistics facility in Bålsta which is now under development.
The new facility is located at Örja 1:23. The area is a well-established logistics hub in southern Sweden, in close proximity to the E6 and E20 motorways. This will be Logicenters’ third investment in Landskrona in just a short period of time. The company’s other tenants here include Sunclass Airlines ApS, Nagel-Group and NA-KD. Including the development of Dagab’s new warehouse, Logicenters will own almost 85,000 m2 of logistics space in Landskrona.
“Logistics is and will continue to be an important piece of the puzzle in tomorrow’s society. So, as a logistics developer, we always want to offer our tenants modern and sustainable logistics facilities in the best and most strategic locations. That is why I’m delighted to once again be working with both Dagab and the city of Landskrona, two parties with whom we already have very good relations”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
In line with Logicenters’ ambitious sustainability strategy, the development of the facility will focus on sustainability. As well as the option of installing solar panels on the roof, the property will also be environmentally certified in accordance with BREEAM Very Good.
“I would like to thank Logicenters for excellent cooperation once again. The continuing construction of our new logistics centre in Bålsta has been a fantastic collaboration, and this has been a contributing factor in our decision to work with Logicenters once again. Our investment in Landskrona is another step in Dagab’s long-term strategy to develop the complete flow of goods within the Axfood Group”, says Nicholas Pettersson, CEO of Dagab.
“We welcome Dagab and its employees to Landskrona. Almost 3,000 new jobs have been created in Landskrona since 2010. Dagab will become a major and important employer in Landskrona, a positive factor for both the city and the people of Landskrona, and will contribute to increased employment“, says Torkild Strandberg (L), mayor of the city of Landskrona.
Europe’s largest food logistics company, Nagel-Group, will now move into Logicenters’ facility in Landskrona, Skåne. The parties have signed a 15-year lease for a 12,000 m2 area in Logicenters’ existing property. Nagel-Group’s move is expected to take place during the latter part of this summer.
2020 saw the completion of Logicenters’ Kronan 1 modern logistics facility on Örjaleden at the Kronan Logistics Park in Landskrona, Sweden. The logistics property company has now signed a lease with German food logistics company Nagel-Group for approximately 12,000 m2 of the property, which has a total area of around 24,000 m2. Since its completion, Sunclass Airlines ApS has occupied the other part of the property.
“We would like to warmly welcome Nagel-Group to our modern property in Landskrona. We are confident that the facility’s strategic location is perfect for its operations, with good communication links to the whole of southern Sweden and northern Europe. I would like to thank both Nagel-Group and the municipality for their great collaboration and look forward to a long-term partnership with both of them,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Before Nagel-Group takes up residence, scheduled to take place in the beginning of September, the logistics facility will be further equipped to meet the company’s needs. Among other things, Logicenters will add additional gates to the property, an extra truck yard and supply areas for refrigerated and frozen goods. There will also be an option to install solar cells on the roof, something which is in line with Logicenters’ ambitious sustainability goals.
“We are looking forward to moving into our new logistics facility, which will strengthen our presence in northern Europe. I would like to thank Logicenters for its excellent collaboration, throughout which it has taken great care to meet and exceed our demanding logistical requirements,” says Hans-Joachim Brockmeyer, Managing Director Nagel Nordics.
“We welcome Nagel-Group to Landskrona. This is further proof of the advantages offered by Landskrona’s strategic location at the heart of an expansive region,” says Torkild Strandberg, mayor of the city of Landskrona.
Logicenters continues to strengthen its position in southern Sweden with the acquisition of a logistics facility in Landskrona in Skåne. The logistics property company has acquired e-commerce company NA-KD’s new 23,000 m2 logistics warehouse. The e-commerce company will continue to operate from the property.
Logicenters is continuing to establish and consolidate its presence at strategic logistics hubs. It has now acquired NA-KD’s 23,000 m2 logistics facility in Kronan Logistics Park, Landskrona. The e-commerce company, which recently moved into the property, will continue to operate from the site. It will also be possible to expand the facility by up to 9,000 m2 in addition to the space currently leased by NA-KD.
“We are very happy about this new collaboration with a growing e-retailer. Logicenters is flourishing and we are more than ready to help NA-KD optimise its logistics management and e-commerce by acquiring this property. Kronan Logistics Park has an unbeatable location for logistics, close to both Malmö and the rest of the Öresund region. We are looking forward to working with NA-KD and it will be exciting to follow its development in a rapidly growing e-commerce sector,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The acquisition of NA-KD’s logistics facility has enabled Logicenters to double its presence in Kronan Logistics Park to a total of almost 50,000 m2 of logistics space. Earlier this year, a 24,000 m2 facility was completed in the park, which is also included in the logistics property company’s property portfolio.
“We are delighted to link up with a leading logistics real estate player that is familiar with our needs. Logicenters is professional, flexible and easy to work with and we are looking forward to it taking over the management of our property. This will enable us to continue focusing on the streamlining of our internal processes and taking our business to the next level,” says Oscar von Konow, COO at NA-KD.
This Monday marked the start of construction on the property that Logicenters is developing in Landskrona, Skåne. The modern logistics facility with solar cells on the roof is scheduled to be available to tenant Thomas Cook Travel Retail during 2020.
In February 2019, Logicenters announced that it is undertaking a development in Skåne for the first time. Ground has now been broken on the 24,000 m2 logistics facility at Kronan Logistics Park in Landskrona. In addition to the property’s modern specifications, solar cells will be installed on the roof, in line with Logicenters’ strategy on sustainability and energy efficiency.
Present at the groundbreaking ceremony was Eva Sterner, Head of Development at Logicenters and Torkild Strandberg, the mayor of Landskrona. Representing Thomas Cook Travel Retail were Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager, Mikaela Andersson, Project Manager Warehouse and Lars Bording, Director of Airshoppen.
“I am pleased that Logicenters is establishing itself on the Skåne market with this modern new development. Landskrona is ideally positioned in an important logistics hub in the region. In addition, half of the property is still available for anyone looking for an outstanding logistics site in the Öresund region,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
The logistics facility is scheduled for completion during the second quarter of 2020. 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.
“When the property is ready, we will be able to increase capacity for our online shopping service Airshoppen, which is important to us. It is exciting to see construction beginning and we are pleased that Logicenters has been able to meet our logistical requirements, especially regarding sustainability,” says Magnus Persson, Warehouse Logistics Manager at Thomas Cook Travel Retail.
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.
