It has been announced that BHS Logistics, a Danish transport and logistics company, will be Logicenters' first tenant at its new facility on Egedesvej in Køge, Denmark, just south of Copenhagen. The lease is for a cross-docking terminal with modern warehousing and office space measuring 6,900 sqm at the Skandinavisk Transport Center logistics park. In addition to the space to be leased by BHS, Logicenters is also planning to develop a further 60,000 sqm of logistics space in the area.
“We are delighted to welcome BHS Logistics to our new facility in Køge, which will be completed in the first half of 2022. The property will be an ultra-modern and sustainable logistics facility that will meet BHS' ambitious sustainability goals and improve the efficiency of its logistics operations”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, Head of Logicenters.
In 2020, Logicenters acquired land at the Skandinavisk Transport Center logistics park with the aim of strengthening its presence in Denmark. In line with Logicenters' ambitious sustainability goals, the new property is being developed with a strong focus on sustainability. As well as the option of installing solar panels on the roof to generate renewable energy for the property, Logicenters undertook a number of studies and implemented measures to optimise the environmental impact of the property even prior to the start of construction.
“We have long had a desire to develop and consolidate our activities in the Copenhagen region, where there is also potential for us to further upgrade our pharmacy set-up in order to maintain our leading position in pharmaceutical transport. We chose Køge because it is a central hub. This is due in part to the surrounding motorway network with good conditions for emergency medical vehicles, but also because the area is a hub for all our traffic to and from Bornholm. This puts us in the best position for more efficient logistics, which ultimately means better service for our customers”, says Morten Studsgaard, CEO at BHS Logistics.
