In the summer of 2021, Logicenters acquired 51,000 m2 of land in Nurmijärvi, Finland, for the purposes of developing modern logistics. The logistics property company has now announced that it has found its first tenant for the facility – Schenker Oy, the Finnish subsidiary of DB Schenker, one of the world’s leading suppliers of global logistics services for industry and trade.
A long-term lease agreement has been signed with Logicenters to lease the entire property with a total area of 25,600 m2.
“We are delighted to welcome DB Schenker to our new facility in Nurmijärvi, just 20 minutes from central Helsinki. The property offers customised solutions with modern logistics in line with Logicenters’ ambitious environmental goals,” says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
The property, Ilvesvuorenkatu 8, will be completed in the second quarter of 2023 and will have BREEAM Very Good sustainability certification. The facility will also offer geothermal energy and solar power generated by rooftop panels.
“We are very excited to start working with Logicenters. The new warehouse building complements our neighboring Ilvesvuori warehouse, which was commissioned in 2012. Together, these two warehouses form our main contract logistics hub of 50 000 sqm in the Helsinki metropolitan area, where we can concentrate our operations in modern, efficient, and environmentally friendly facilities,” says Petteri Nurmi, CEO of Schenker Oy.
Nurmijärvi is part of the capital region of Finland, strategically located close to both Helsinki- Vantaa international airport and the E12 European motorway. The area is already home to companies such as DB Schenker and the location offers good transport links to both Helsinki and Tampere.
