Logicenters has acquired a new site of 58 000 m2 in Tampere, Finland. A state-of-the-art vacant property of 29 000 m2 is expected to be ready in the fourth quarter of 2024.
The logistics real estate operator Logicenters is expanding its presence in Finland by acquiring a brownfield site of 58 000 m2 in Hervanta, close to Tampere. It is now clear that the old property will be demolished, and in its place Logicenters will build a vacant sustainable warehouse with the possibility for several tenants to rent at the same time.
“This will be Logicenters first bigger brownfield-project in the Nordics. As the availability of greenfield sites in good logistics locations becomes increasingly limited, even in the Nordic region, I am convinced that we will make more acquisitions like this in the metropolitan areas in the future”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, CEO at Logicenters.
The facility in Hervanta will be located close to E12 and E63 with direct connection to Northern Finland. From the warehouse in Kytömaankatu to the city center of Tampere takes only 17 minutes by car.
“We are excited about the development of the new property in Hervanta. This strategic acquisition is significant to serve the southern logistics hub of Finland and demonstrates our dedication to offer top-class logistics solutions”, says Jarkko Äikää, Commerical Director at Logicenters in Finland.
The new property of 29 000 m2 is developed in line with Logicenters sustainable profile and will have solar panels on the roof as well as geothermal heat. The ambition is to acquire the environmental certification BREEAM excellent.
Logicenters has signed an agreement with a new tenant for its property in Sipoo. The facility, covering 15,200 m2, is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Starting from the new year, the logistics company Warasto Finland Oy will operate in the new property.
Logicenters has signed a long-term agreement with the logistics company Warasto Finland Oy for the facility located at Rahtiraitti 11 in Sipoo. The new property will be strategically located in the Bastukärr logistics area, only five minutes away from the E75 highway and in close proximity to Helsinki.
”We are really looking forward to welcoming Warasto Finland Oy to our new property in Sipoo. The long-term agreement feels just right, and it’s exciting to be part of their continued growth. Our modern logistics property will be ready for occupancy in early 2024”, says Jarkko Äikää, Commerical Director at Logicenters.
Warasto Finland Oy is a local third-party logistics company that continues to expand in Finland. Now, the company will centralize its business operations in the Helsinki area, with Logicenters new warehouse facility as its base.
”The cooperation with Logicenters has been excellent, and it will be thrilling to move into a new place which gives us a possibility to grow in brand-new facility also in Helsinki area. This long-term agreement marks a significant milestone and allows us to continue our growth in the logistics industry”, says Santtu Jokela, COO at Warasto Finland Oy.

Nurmijärvi is part of the capital region in Finland and is strategically located with proximity to both Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport and the E12 European highway.
“Six of our previous warehouses in Finland have been awarded Eco Warehouse environmental status by our parent company Deutsche Bahn. This latest warehouse also meets these requirements. Our contract logistics hub in the metropolitan area, which has now doubled in size, enables us to offer a wide range of storage services conveniently located along the Helsinki–Tampere motorway E12 and opens up new opportunities for our customers’ storage needs throughout the Nordic region“, says Petteri Nurmi, CEO of DB Schenker in Nordics.

Logicenters is continuing to concentrate on a sustainable future. To lead the move towards a carbon-neutral sector, the company has decided to more than double its ownership of solar cell installations in the coming years.
With a sustainability goal to be completely carbon neutral by 2028, Logicenters has decided to pioneer the use of renewable energy at its facilities.
The decision has been made to cover roofs with solar panels on all new builds and to install them on existing roofs where possible.
In total, Logicenters aims to install around 800,000 m2 of solar cells over the next three years. This area is equivalent to a total of 133 football pitches. In total, this investment would generate potential annual production of 85,000 MWh, sufficient household electricity for more than the whole of Östersund (24,290 households).
“The logistics property sector has the necessary conditions and therefore a responsibility to take a leading role in the expansion of solar energy on our large roof areas. We are also building for tomorrow, when solar power will be used to charge the electric distribution vehicles of the future. It is here that we at Logicenters feel we can make a big difference,” says Jon Malmsten, solar energy expert at Logicenters.
Over the last year, this ambitious solar cell strategy has already seen construction of the largest roof-mounted solar plant in the Nordic region, covering 80,000 m2. The plant was built for Dagab in Bålsta and is set to become operational in March.
“For me, it goes without saying that we should continue our commitment to solar energy for a carbon-neutral tomorrow. The property sector continues to account for 40% of global emissions and there is an urgent need to find better ways both to develop and to operate properties. Everyone must assume responsibility and it is our ambition to be at the forefront of the Nordic market,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, CEO of Logicenters.
Logicenters has developed its property in Pirkkala, Finland, which will be completed by the end of February. It has now been announced that international packaging company DS Smith will move into the facility as the tenant.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new tenant. We look forward to working with you for many years to come,” says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
DS Smith is a leading global provider of environmentally sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services. The new premises in Pirkkala will enable it to streamline its operations and strengthen its position outside Tampere.

Logicenters has responded to DS Smith’s requirement for a modern and sustainable building in close proximity to attractive transport routes. The production in Pirkkala and Tampere, when combined with that of our other factories, will enable us to deliver exactly the type of cardboard packaging our customers need,” says Ari Viinikkala, CEO at DS Smith, Finland.
