Distribution centres are often located along the ring roads encircling population centres or, based on the nature of the goods, centrally within a region.

What happens in a distribution centre?

A distribution centre is designed to store goods in a central location for a short period before onward transport to retailers in the distribution centre’s service region. In particular, this requires good loading and unloading opportunities.  

E-warehouse is a variant of city logistics that specialises in serving the growing ecommerce segment. E-commerce warehouses often have equipment for packing goods prior to delivery to distribution points where end users can collect their goods. They can also be centrally located in urban areas or otherwise easily accessible to consumers in order to streamline and improve the supplier’s distribution in the last stage – reaching consumers.

ICA Fastigheter, Apotea and Sorunda are examples of companies with operations in Catena's distribution centres.

Future-proofed distribution centres

Our ambition is net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, which, among other things, affects the construction process when a new distribution centre is to be built. We also want to achieve environmental certifications on 100 percent of the Group’s lettable area and net-positive property portfolio in terms of biodiversity.

Our specialised focus on logistics properties may seem narrow, but it means that we amass invaluable expertise and can instead assume a broad and long-term responsibility, a responsibility that ranges from new production to customer-oriented day-to-day property management. Please contact us.
