A new hub called ‘Logistics City’ is to be built near Stockholm Arlanda Airport.
The Logistics City will cover an area of 1m sq m and building works, scheduled to take commence next month, will take place in two stages.
The southern section of the hub will be built first. The first phase of the southern section is expected to be completed in 2023. This section of the hub will include warehouses for logistics and skilled trade purposes, as well as hotels, restaurants and petrol stations to serve people using the hub.
The northern section will be located next to Runway 1 at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which will make it easy for freight forwarders and shippers to transport their goods too and from aircraft.
Exploratory work for the northern section is underway.
Stefan Stenberg, chief executive of Swedavia Real Estate, commented: “We see strong demand for logistics properties in attractive locations, driven by growing e-commerce and greater requirements for fast, flexible deliveries.
“Logistic City is strategically located next to Stockholm Arlanda Airport and the E4 motorway, and we are convinced that it will be an excellent base for many companies, especially in cargo and logistics.”
