Panattoni, a market leader in industrial real estate in Europe, has started the implementation of two sorting plants for DPD Polska. They will be built as part of Panattoni Park Gdańsk Airport and Panattoni Park Poznań X, each of which will have an area of approximately 3,600 sqm. The tenant will start operating in spring 2021.
At the end of March this year companies in this industry recorded a 20 percent higher turnover than at the beginning of the year, which translated into growing interest and demand for warehouse space. This is confirmed by DPD Polska – part of DPD group, the second largest international courier network in Europe – which is expanding its operations by two new locations within Panattoni’s logistics complexes. Sorting plants with approx. 3,600 sqm each will be built at Panattoni Park Poznań X and Panattoni Park Gdańsk Airport.
Construction works will be completed in spring 2021. The greater Poland and Pomeranian investments are not the only projects implemented by Panattoni for the DPD Polska. In October 2019, the companies extended their lease agreements for facilities with a total area of over 10,000 sqm at Panattoni Park Sosnowiec II and Panattoni Park Kraków III.
“The development of e-commerce, the growth of the express delivery market and the growing demands of consumers require us to constantly modernize the infrastructure. Our goal is to deliver shipments safely, quickly and efficiently. The construction of new facilities is an opportunity to implement energy-saving and sustainable technologies. It also means more effective road connection networks and reduction of CO2 emissions on routes connecting sorting plants and our branches,” commented Rafał Nawłoka, president of the board of DPD Polska.
“Courier companies are looking for the most attractive locations for their sorting plants in order to be as close as possible to the customer and improve operational processes. Thanks to our huge network of logistics parks, we can offer a strategic location, regardless of the region. Cooperation with DPD Polska is the best example. We build facilities for this client in Pomerania and Greater Poland” and adds: -” In 2019, the number of parcels in Poland exceeded half a billion, and according to forecasts it will increase to even 850 million in 2023. The volume of shipments may increase even more if current development of the industry will be maintained,” commented Michał Samborski, Head of Development from Panattoni.
