Logicenters has signed a ten-year contract with Systembolaget for the lease of a modern logistics facility in Brunna Logistics Park. The property is under development and is scheduled to be ready for occupation during the second quarter of this year. The facility will have a total area of 24,000 m2 and Systembolaget will lease a large proportion of this.
Logicenters welcomes Systembolaget to Brunna Logistics Park, north of Stockholm. The 24,000 m2 property will consist of high-bay racking, mezzanines and offices, and Systembolaget will utilise a large proportion of the space. Brunna Logistics Park is located directly alongside the E18 motorway and close to the E4, which is an ideal strategic location for Systembolaget’s warehouse.
The construction, which is being undertaken by Logicenters, is already in full swing and is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of this year. Systembolaget is expected to get access to its new and modern facility in Brunna Logistics Park on June 1 this year.
“We look forward to working with Systembolaget and supporting its continued efforts to increase customer satisfaction. This will be a facility with modern specifications and high standards. In order to meet Systembolaget’s stringent environmental requirements, we will also jointly review the options for installing solar panels”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
Attractive space available at Brunna Logistics Park
Logicenters has been present in Brunna Logistics Park since 2017 and it has turned out tobe an important location for the company. The tenants include Zalando and Bythjul Norden and soon Systembolaget. There is still space available for lease in the newly developed facility.
“We are now signing our fourth customer at Brunna Logistics Park and even though the properties are filling up quickly, there is still space available in the facility currently under construction. The great interest in our properties shows that the investment in Brunna has been successful”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
Logicenters and Kilenkrysset are cooperating on a joint venture outside Bålsta in Håbo municipality. A brand new logistics park is now being developed, with the aim of becoming the largest logistics hub in the region. The design of the 312,400 m2 site is already under way and the first construction projects are expected to begin before the summer.
Logicenters and Kilenkrysset have worked together for many years, developing mutual trust in each other as they have cooperated on several joint real estate projects. The two companies are now investing together in the development of a completely new logistics park. The site is located in Håbo municipality and the park will be the largest north of Stockholm. The area to be developed is 312,400 m2, of which 150,000 m2 can be used for construction.
“Taking on the creation of a completely new logistics park is a huge project for us. The area has great potential to become a logistics hub in the future and working with Kilenkrysset and Håbo municipality, we will be able to make this possible. We have good relationships with them and the cooperation has always worked well. It will be exciting to develop the area together from the outset. We are planning to begin property development at the site during the second quarter of this year,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head at Logicenters.
The site is a logistically strategic location at Håbo Lundby 2:8, just outside Bålsta. In close proximity to the international airport, the E18 motorway and Stockholm, it is an attractive location. In addition, railway sidings run all the way into the site, which will facilitate the future transport infrastructure.
“From Kilenkrysset’s point of view, when working to establish large real estate projects and on refinements, cooperating with partnerships is a natural part of the process and this is where Logicenters has been one of our absolute largest partners. We have already started designing the site and are filled with confidence for the establishment. The logistics park will be developed on a good site and has an optimal location with 3.5 million people within an hour’s journey,” says Jens Persson, CEO of Kilenkrysset.
“Håbo municipality is very positive about this type of establishment. We are delighted that Håbo’s strategic location is of interest for investment by companies such as Kilenkrysset and Logicenters. The establishment of the Logistics Park, of course, gives Håbo municipality the opportunity to continue good growth with more jobs in the future,” says Tobias Arvidsson, head of local government at Håbo municipality.
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.
