Construction of the two facilities, totaling 58,000 sqm, in the 7R Park Szczecin complex has commenced. It's 7R’s third major project in this region. A modern A-class building for Hultafors Group, which will be the first automated warehouse to use the AutoStore system in Poland, will be completed this month. . Meanwhile, in the center of the capital of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, the 7R City Flex Last Mile Logistics warehouse is already operating.

"The warehouse market in Szczecin is promising. It is also developing into one of the most important logistics hubs, connecting trade and production between Poland, and Germany, the Netherlands as well as the Scandinavian countries. The total stock of warehouse space in the region increased at the end of H1 2020 to over 800,000 sqm, a 14% increase y-o-y. The main factor behind Szczecin's growing position in the warehouse segment is the importance of e-commerce in trade, and the availability of a skilled workforce. The logistics and warehouse hub will rapidly develop in this region, which is why we are building in Pomerania again," says Bartłomiej Krawiecki, Member of the Board, Head of Development at 7R.

The Polish border with Germany, our largest partner in goods export and logistics operations, is the main driver of the Szczecin warehouse market. Another advantage is the region’s very well-developed infrastructure, with nearly 144 km of new roads being added in 2020.

The ports of Szczecin and Świnoujście are being modernized to accommodate larger cargo ships. They are also undergoing the largest-ever construction works to improve rail access to the ports.

The first tenant will move into 7R Park Szczecin in mid-2021. The general contractor of the investment is Dekpol.
