POSTAL TERMINAL OF THE FUTURE BUILT IN VÄSTERÅS

In partnership with PostNord, property management company Bockasjö AB is creating a new distribution hub in Västerås, a brand new structure that will replace five existing venues. The new facility is fully adapted to meet the requirement for efficient handling of goods and parcels which the rapid pace of growth in e-commerce demands.

“We are pleased and proud to be expanding our partnership with PostNord,” says Joakim Hedin, CEO of the Bockasjö Group, which has already leased several logistics centres to PostNord, the Nordic region’s leading communications and logistics company.

Construction is now beginning of Sweden’s most modern parcel sorting facility, strategically located in Örebro and comprising a total of 26,589 square meters of leasable space. With a new distribution hub in Västerås, PostNord further strengthens its position in the Mälardal region.

The powerful growth in e-commerce is the background of the successful collaboration between property development company Bockasjö AB and the PostNord Group. In Västerås, Bockasjö AB is in charge of the construction of the new facility, which will subsequently be rented by PostNord in a long-term lease.

The new facility in Västerås will be finished in January 2018.

“Bockasjö AB is a stable partner with a deep understanding of our needs in the fast-paced logistics industry. The new facility in Västerås will be an important hub in our operations,” says Anders Holm, CEO of PostNord Sverige AB.

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 Västerås after completion.
