Göteborg Landvetter’s airport city boosted by Zeppelin Sverige deal
Swedavia’s plans to develop an airport city at Göteborg Landvetter Airport (Gothenburg) have been boosted by Zeppelin Sverige AB’s decision to set up its Swedish headquarters in one of the gateway’s new business parks.
In order to meet continued strong demand for logistics properties, Swedavia is planning to develop a further 350,000 square metres of warehouse and logistics facilities.
The sale of land to Zeppelin Sverige – an exclusive distributor for Caterpillar Inc – is in line with Swedavia’s strategy to create value by successfully developing properties close to its airports in order to reinvest in the airports’ development and competitiveness.
Airport City Göteborg has the vision to be a cutting-edge airport city with opportunities for the companies of tomorrow to work and grow.
Located in the heart of Airport City Göteborg is Logistics Park 1, a hub for the logistics of the future. Swedavia has now sold two companies that own land in the area to Zeppelin Sverige AB.
Zeppelin is planning to set up its Swedish headquarters there, with 32,000 square metres of premises and some 100 jobs along with a modern, multi-functional and flexible service facility that will be a full-range base for all of Zeppelin’s operations in the western region.
“We are pleased that Zeppelin has chosen to set up operations in the middle of an optimal logistics hub next to Göteborg Landvetter Airport, with its proximity to air links, the biggest cities in the region, Gothenburg and Borås, to the Port of Gothenburg, and also to the large road network here,” enthuses Stefan Stenberg, CEO of Swedavia Real Estate.
“With its international profile, Zeppelin will fit in well with the mix of companies setting up operations here. We are now planning for a Logistics Park 2 in order to meet the strong demand.”
Logistics Park 1 is Airport City Göteborg’s first logistics park, with a total of 150,000 square metres of premises for warehouses and logistics operations.
According to Swedavia, state-of-the-art logistics properties have been built here, customised to meet customers’ needs. In 2019-2020, companies including Postnord TPL, Rajapack, Vätterleden Logistik and Dawa Däck all set up operations in the area.
The next step in the development of Airport City Göteborg is Logistics Park 2, which is in the planning stage.
