DHL signs 9000 sqm with Prologis in Torslanda, Gothenburg
DHL Supply Chain is one Prologis’ biggest customers with facilities accounting for close to 1 million square meters worldwide. Through this agreement DHL takes over the entire DC4 building. Together with the 14,000 square meter building DC2, DHL now lease close to 30,000 sqm in Prologis Logistics Park I in Torslanda.
The site will be fully dedicated to a customer that DHL recently signed a long-term contract with, starting operations in Q2 2019.
“We are very pleased to expand our footprint and grow in Gothenburg as it is an important region for us and our customers. Prologis have been a valuable partner in this project and has shown tremendous flexibility in accommodating our needs,” says Anders Mars, Head of Business Development and Account Management for DHL Supply Chain in the Nordics.
“DHL is an important tenant and we appreciate that they have chosen to expand in Gothenburg with us. Our parks in Torslanda are strategic locations for companies that want to be close to Gothenburg harbour, as well as being well-connected to the rest of the Nordics,” says Bram Verhoeven, Prologis regional head Northern Europe.
Vacancies in Gothenburg are now at a historically low level. A completely new building, DC3 in Prologis Logistics Park II, is currently under construction and will be completed during the first half of 2019. The first tenant, Storex, is to move in at the beginning of 2019. Next to Storex, two units totalling 14,400 sqm will be constructed and delivered in Q2 2019. These units are available for lease, anticipating solid demand for modern warehouse space in the Gothenburg region.
