WE ARE NOW BUILDING THE LOGISTICS TERMINAL OF THE FUTURE

In collaboration with PostNord, property development company Bockasjö AB is now building Sweden’s most modern parcel sorting terminal, strategically located in Örebro, with a total of 26,589 square meters of leasable space.

The powerful growth in e-commerce places brand new demands on an effective infrastructure for handling goods and parcels. This is the background of the lease between Bockasjö AB and the PostNord Group. Bockasjö has also been tasked with building a new terminal and parcel sorting facility, which will be rented by PostNord in a long-term lease.

“The development in e-commerce is causing growing pains in the logistics industry, which is handling goods in much larger quantities than ever before. Our new facility will be the most modern of its kind and will serve as a reference point for similar projects in the future,” concludes Joakim Hedin, CEO of the Bockasjö Group.

Construction will begin later this spring and the facility will be completed in August 2017. The facility will be fully operational in February 2018, following the installation of a new parcel sorting facility in the new spaces in autumn 2017. The facility is configured as a parcel sorting facility connected to a so-called crossdocking terminal for optimal efficiency.

“We are incredibly pleased by the expanded partnership with PostNord. We have worked together before on two completed logistics facilities in Helsingborg, which the PostNord Group leases,” says Joakim Hedin.

“Bockasjö AB is a stable partner with a solid understanding of our needs in the fast-paced logistics industry. The new facility in Örebro will be our first large multi-terminal, where we’ll handle mixed cargo groupage, pallets, parcels and mail sorting. Our increased import and export flows to Norway also go through the terminal in Örebro, which will make it an even more important hub for us in the future,” says CEO of PostNord Sweden Anders Holm.

Based in Borås, the Bockasjö Group is active in property management and development, with a focus on warehousing and logistics in Scandinavia. The group is owned equally by Joakim Hedin and Paul Frankenius.

In February this year, property group Bockasjö and pension company Alecta formed a new, joint property company, Logistikfastigheter i Sverige AB, with the goal to build a significant portfolio of logistics properties in strategic locations throughout Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia within five years. Logistikfastigheter i Sverige AB will take over the new facility in Örebro after completion.
