Logicenters continues to invest heavily in the Oslo region. The logistics property company is set to acquire one of the most modern logistics facilities in the Nordic region, with an area of approximately 18,500 m2. The tenant is ODA, formerly Kolonial.no, Norway’s leading provider of online grocery delivery. Logicenters is scheduled to take possession in the first quarter of 2022, which is also when ODA will move in.
Logicenters is continuing to strengthen its position as one of the Nordic region’s leading providers of modern logistics facilities with the acquisition of another property in the Oslo region. The tenant, ODA, previously branded as Kolonial.no, is Norway’s largest and leading provider of online grocery delivery. The property is located at Drammensveien 189 in the municipality of Lier and is an ultra-modern facility of approximately 18,500 m2 divided across two floors.
“Logicenters is very happy for acquiring a sustainable and state-of-the-art facility for last-mile distribution, which is also leased to one of the Nordic region’s fastest growing companies. ODA has a clear focus on technology and sustainability, two factors that are in line with our ambition to provide our tenants with the logistics facilities of tomorrow. They also value efficient logistics solutions from producer to end customer, something we are confident we can provide with our new and future-proof facility. We look forward to a long and successful collaboration”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
The new facility also has a clear sustainability profile, including a solar panel installation expected to generate approximately 1.1 GWh of renewable electricity per year. The property is also located in a geographically strategic location in the region, something which Logicenters values highly when acquiring or developing properties.
“The Oslo region is an important location for us, given the area’s great position, high population density and growth. The new facility is located alongside the E18 motorway, 30 km outside the Oslo city centre. As ODA focuses heavily on efficient last-mile distribution, the geographical position of the distribution centre is ideal for fast and efficient deliveries to consumers”, says Ruben Krantz Kringstad, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
The facility is ODA’s second distribution centre in eastern Norway and is designed for a high turnover of goods and to meet the requirements for efficient delivery to customers in the region.
“The fact that we are now establishing a new warehouse in the Oslo region is very inspiring. We are pleased that Logicenters, which focuses on development and long-term ownership of logistics properties, will be the new owner of our facility when Eneo Eiendom has completed the development. We look forward to a good collaboration in the future”, says founder and CEO Karl Alveng Munthe-Kaas at ODA.
The property is being acquired from a number of shareholders and the deal has been led by Eneo Eiendom, which is the project manager for the development and sale of the facility.
“It has been a very exciting process and ODA is an ambitious company that has set high standards for how the property should be designed and adapted to optimise its operations. We believe that Logicenters is a perfect partner for ODA and we look forward to handing over the property in March 2022”, says Morten Hotvedt, CEO at Eneo Eiendom.
