In June 2020, MG Real Estate announced that they had signed a lease with Westerman in Malmö, in the ‘Norra Hamnen’ Malmö Industrial Park. The agreement involved leasing land from the City of Malmö for development of an 18,000m2 freight transhipment facility for combined transport for rail, road and shipping. The property is to be ready for Westerman to move into in the summer 2021 and construction is well underway now with the First Column setting.
WESTERMAN MULTIMODAL LOGISTICS
Westerman has a long experience of multimodal transport of goods between Scandinavia and the European continent. With this project we will strengthen this important transport corridor and increase the possibilities for our partners to forward, cross-dock and store their goods and at the same time utilize the transport in a more sustainable and effective way. This project is therefore very important for us, improving the system and increase cooperation within these markets in a combination of rail, sea and road logistics. We very much look forward in starting our activities in Malmö this summer to provide new transport solutions to our customers and partners. – Lambert Van Dieren, CEO of Westerman Multimodal Logistics’ group.
We are thrilled to celebrate the setting of our First Column in Malmö on the Westerman facility. During this unique time globally, MG Real Estate is pleased to signal our continued belief in the Nordics Logistics market and in Malmö as a top transport corridor, a prime location for logistics warehousing. We continue to invest in strategic locations and are proud to support our partners such as Westerman in projects such as this one in Malmö. – Anton Van Vlerken, CCO Europe, MG Real Estate.
