The Axfood Group’s purchasing and logistics company Dagab has signed a long-term lease with the property company NREP Logicenters for an all-new nationwide warehouse for fruits and vegetables. The new warehouse will be located in Landskrona, creating conditions for improved efficiency and replace the existing fruit and vegetable warehouse in Helsingborg.

To further develop and streamline logistics operations and accommodate future volume growth, Dagab has signed a 15-year lease with the property company Logicenters for a new and larger nationwide fruit and vegetable warehouse in Landskrona. The new warehouse, which is planned to be fully operational at the end of 2022, has a prime location and infrastructure, and will enable a future automation solution. The warehouse will be environmentally certified, and compared with the warehouse space in Helsingborg, the area in the new warehouse in Landskrona will be more than twice as large. The total warehouse area will be more than 37,000 sq. m. with a potential expansion area of an additional approximately 8,000 sq. m.

This investment should be seen as part of Dagab’s long-term vision to build the future’s strongest logistics structure and contribute to improving the customer offering and customer meeting for all of the Axfood Group’s customers. The new warehouse will replace the existing, nationwide fruit and vegetable warehouse in Helsingborg and will supply stores throughout Sweden.

“This investment is yet another step in Dagab’s long-term strategy to develop the entire supply chain within the Axfood Group,” comments Nicholas Pettersson, Managing Director of Dagab. “An efficient, sustainable and dynamic logistics operation – backed by an attractive and efficient assortment – is a central part of our work on making a difference in the customer meeting for our chains – Willys, Hemköp, Tempo, Handlar’n, Snabbgross, Eurocash and Mat.se.”

In Landskrona, Dagab will also take this opportunity to combine the warehousing and transport operations, which today are at different locations, to further optimize the product flow. The new warehouse will be a modern workplace that is better-suited to the business needs.

The geographic site is west of the Landskrona Södra traffic junction, where the logistics property is being built on a 96,000 sq. m. lot that the property company Logicenters is buying from Landskrona Municipality.
