One of the world's leading providers of freight forwarding and supply chain management services, Damco, part of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group, has leased the last existing space in the logistics park near the R6 expressway about 12 km from the Centre of Prague.
Miroslav Kotek, Senior Consultant Industrial Agency at JLL, comments: “Thanks to the professionalism and the flexibility of both the tenant and the landlord, we have managed to finalize the negotiations in a very short time. Apart from price and high standard of the premises, the main criterion for Damco was also the location, as the company has been operating in this area for more than 12 years.
Bart van de Vin, CEO of Damco Central Europe, adds: “JLL impressed us with understanding our requirements well and leading us through the whole process, from surveying the local real estate markets, through viewings to finally signing the contract with Segro swiftly and efficiently. Segro premises are of a high standard both us and our customers are used to and we are looking forward to moving into the new building. We are planning on using this new facility to support steady growth of our two main logistic activities in Czech Republic, i.e. contract logistics as well deconsolidation activities for both ocean and air forwarding.”
Currently, Segro Logistics Park Prague offers over 100 000 sqm of industrial space for rent which is standing and fully leased. The park’s potential is over 250 000 sqm of modern logistic and industrial space that will be provided on 70 ha of land. The park benefits from strategic location adjacent to the R6 motorway and the Prague airport. Among its tenants are companies such as Ikea, PRO.MED.CS Praha and Domo Service.
