In addition, this establishment is proof of the advantages of Örebro’s strategic location and we believe that this could be the first of several collaborations in the future,” says John Johansson (S), mayor of Örebro municipality.

The facility in Viared, located just outside Borås, is equipped with all the technology required for modern logistics operations. E-retailer Care of Carl has been the tenant in the other part of the 24,000 m2 property since last autumn.
“We are delighted to be further expanding our cooperation with Speed Group. It is our largest customer in Borås and to have the opportunity to further support its growth is very inspiring. We look forward to continuing our successful cooperation for many years to come”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The property that Speed Group is now moving into is strategically located close to both Göteborg and Jönköping as well as Landvetter Airport. It will also be the second facility that the company leases from Logicenters in Borås. The first is an 83,000 m2 logistics facility which also has the largest rooftop solar plant in the Nordic region.
“Our business is growing and we want to expand our space as a means of creating the conditions for organic growth. In 2017, we signed our first lease agreement with Logicenters here in Borås and we are now delighted to be taking this next step together. Logicenters has proven able to meet our requirements for running a successful logistics operation in the area. That’s why it seemed to be the obvious choice as we take the next step in our development”, says Mats Johnson, CEO of Speed Group.
Logicenters is expanding its cooperation with Axfood’s purchasing and logistics company Dagab.

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.

Logicenters is in the process of expanding one of its logistics facilities at the Brunna Logistics Park, north of Stockholm. The expansion involves an extension of 18,900 m2, with the new section scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2022.
Logicenters is continuing to establish and consolidate its presence at strategic logistics hubs. The logistics property company is now ramping up development by expanding one of its facilities at Brunna Logistics Park, where it has had a presence since 2017. Logicenters’ tenants at the logistics park include Ingram, Zalando, Systembolaget, Bythjul.com and Autoglas. The expansion is taking place at one of Logicenters’ modern facilities in Brunna and involves an extension in area of approximately 18,900 m2. The work is scheduled for completion by the spring of 2022.
“We are delighted to once again be expanding our presence in Brunna. This area is ideal for logistics operations, which is why we are now expanding our presence in the park. Our flexible working model allows us to support existing and future tenants with varying needs, for example through these types of speculative expansions. In addition to this expansion, we are also planning to develop another property totalling 30,000 m2 in the park soon”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
Brunna Logistics Park is strategically located north of Stockholm and offers geographical advantages with a well-developed infrastructure of roads, railways and airports. This expansion is enabling Logicenters to further strengthen its presence in the area, and it will have close to 90,000 m2 of logistics space upon completion.
With the ambition to switch to 100 percent renewable electricity in its operations before 2025, Logicenters is now ramping up its efforts by installing solar panels on six more of its facilities. This means that Logicenters will be doubling the number of solar plants compared to today. It is estimated that the solar panels will generate a total of 9 gigawatt hours of electricity annually.
Logicenters has recently signed an agreement to install solar plants at six of its facilities across the Nordic region. Logicenters currently has solar plants on seven of its properties. With the installations now being carried out, Logicenters will be doubling the number of solar plants installed on its facilities. It is estimated that the solar cells will have a total capacity of up to 10,000 kWp and will produce 9 gigawatt hours of electricity on an annual basis. This is equivalent to the energy required to supply 1,800 homes with electricity for an entire year.
For example, Logicenters and its tenant Speed Group are currently installing the Nordic region’s largest rooftop solar plant in Borås, Sweden. At this property alone, the solar cells cover a roof area of 60,000 m2 and have a capacity of 5,000 kWp.
“We are very pleased to be managing this sustainable transition in the logistics industry. It is of the utmost priority to us that we reduce our climate footprint as much as possible while simultaneously securing the future energy needs of our tenants. By installing solar cells on our roofs, we can also utilise very large areas not normally in use, instead of taking up land that may be better suited for other things”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
As the leading developer and owner of modern logistics facilities in the Nordic region, Logicenters also wants to manage the transition to renewable energy within the logistics industry. Through NREP, Logicenters has become affiliated with RE100, a global coalition of companies committed to renewable energy. Consequently, Logicenters is undertaking to switch to using 100 percent renewable electricity throughout the company’s property portfolio before 2025.
“Solar cells are just one part of our comprehensive sustainability work. We are also maintaining an ongoing dialogue with our tenants regarding the implementation of energy efficiency measures that will also mean significant potential savings for them,” says Karin Sjövall, Head of Sustainability at Logicenters.
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.
One of Sweden’s fastest growing health product companies has signed a lease with Logicenters to move into their upcoming state-of-the-art facility in Staffanstorp, Skåne. The parties have signed a seven-year lease for a 5,000 m2 area in Logicenters’ future property. The entire facility is scheduled for completion in early 2022 and First Class Brands of Sweden is expected to move in later that year. The remainder of the property, measuring as much as 20,000 m2, is currently being built on speculation.
Logicenters’ modern property in Staffanstorp, just outside Malmö, will be ready for its tenants at the beginning of 2022. The property, with a total area of 25,000 m2, has already secured its first prospective tenant, as Logicenters has now signed a lease agreement with the fast-growing health product company First Class Brands of Sweden. The lease is for an area of 5,000 m2 and the company is expected to move into its new premises in August 2022.
“We are delighted that First Class Brands of Sweden will be the first tenant in our upcoming modern property. It is great to be investing in Staffanstorp and First Class Brands of Sweden is an excellent example of a forward-looking company which has realised the value in the attractive location of the area,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The facility will be built on Västanvägen in Kronoslätts Logistics Park. With its proximity to Malmö and the Öresund region, the area’s geographical location is very attractive to many different types of companies. In the past, major companies such as Bring Frigo, Kuehne + Nagel and Microsoft have chosen to establish themselves in the logistics park. As First Class Brands of Sweden will move into one-fifth of the property, this means that the remaining approximately 20,000 m2 will be available for additional tenants.
“We are very much looking forward to moving into our new logistics facility, which will also be a perfect location for supporting our future growth and operations. I would like to thank Logicenters for its excellent collaboration so far and we will follow the development of what will become our new warehouse and head office in Sweden with great excitement,” says Felipe Garay, COO & partner at First Class Brands of Sweden.
