Panattoni to build largest warehouse in Poland

POLAND Leroy Merlin, which is consolidating its distribution chain in Poland, has leased 123,300 sqm of space from Panattoni Europe in Piątek near Łódź.

The BTS warehouse is to be the largest logistics building in the country, although there have been larger leases that have included space on mezzanine floors such as a 146,000 sqm contract in Gliwice and 135,000 sqm in Sosnowiec, both of which were signed last year. In the case of the Leroy Merlin project it is the actual size on the ground level and this is what will make it the record-holder for the Polish warehouse market.

The warehouse itself will take up 121,212 sqm, while the office and staff facilities will occupy 2,420 sqm. Construction work is scheduled to begin in Q2 this year, and the entire development is scheduled to be completed in Q4 2019. The site will also a 10,000 sqm roofed area for storing goods that need not be kept indoors, as well as parking facilities for 25 trucks and 150 cars. The warehouse itself will have 160 docks and six ground-level drive-in gates. It is to be BREEAM-certified with a rating of ‘Good’. The lease was brokered by JLL.

”To guarantee the highest level of service and the availability of our goods for our customers, we have decided to consolidate our distribution chain. Such a move will give us greater flexibility in managing stock for the goods that we offer in our stores. We will combine various distribution channels under one roof, such as: x-dock, stock and direct deliveries from the warehouse to the customer. Our e-commerce service will also be moved from Stryków to the new location in Piątek to develop the range of goods and services we offer our customers. The development of a central logistics centre is a must in today’s market and Leroy Merlin Polska understands this perfectly,” claims Krzysztof Niciejewski, a senior logistics manager at Leroy Merlin Polska

This is the third development by Panattoni Europe for Leroy Merlin after two warehouses that it delivered in Stryków. One of them, was also the largest logistics centre in the country when it was built in 2008 with an area of 56,000 sqm.
