Bockasjö and Eskilstuna municipality have signed an option agreement for approximately 159,000m2 of land at Eskilstuna Logistics Park. As a result, Bockasjö will be able to offer efficient facilities in a prime location for logistics and distribution in the Stockholm area and Mälardalen.
“Together with the municipality of Eskilstuna, we are well equipped to meet the needs of e-commerce for storage capacity, and to phase out old buildings and replace them with more efficient premises,” says Joakim Hedin, CEO of Bockasjö.
The area, with a favourable exposure position on the E20 highway, is adjacent to Bockasjö’s existing logistics property of 23,000m2 which is leased to Sportamore. The plans of project include two buildings of 27,000 and 31,000m2 respectively.
E-commerce in Sweden is expanding vigorously, with a rise of 16 per cent in 2017 and an expectation of doubling that figure within five years. This growth is driving the need for modern logistics facilities near the end customer to ensure shorter delivery times and same day delivery. Some 3.5 million people can reach Eskilstuna Logistics Park’s unique location within one hour, and across the Nordic region, within one day.
“We are looking forward to Bockasjö’s offensive initiative which will consolidate Eskilstuna’s position as one of the country’s most important and expansive logistics hubs,” says David Hofmann, CEO Eskilstuna Logistik and Etablering AB.
