Panattoni is once again developing a project for DB Schenker near Poznań. In the second quarter of 2022, the logistics operator will occupy over 20,000 sqm in Panattoni Park Poznań XII, where it will serve its client from the automotive sector. The two companies have worked together in Panattoni Park Poznań VIII in Komorniki. The building will feature reinforced floors, suitable for forklifts that use the inductive loop technology. Panattoni will also deliver numerous green solutions, which should allow the project to obtain the BREEAM certification at the “Excellent” level.


Poznań industrial real estate market is the most popular one in Poland, both in terms of the take up with 800,000 sqm leased at the end of the third quarter 2021, and in terms of supply – with more than half a million sqm of industrial space under development at the end of the third quarter. DB Schenker will move to the new Panattoni’s industrial complex, the Panattoni Park Poznań XII industrial park, in Plewiska near Komorniki. The logistic operator is to occupy the space in the second quarter of 2022. Panattoni will reinforce the floor and will thicken it up to 19 cm, so that it can be suitable for forklifts steered with the use of the induction loop technology. The developer will also install a compressed air system, prepare a place for a cleaning machine and install a charging station. The building will have 12m in height, which is compliant with Panattoni warehouse standards. The development for DB Schenker will be certified under the BREEAM certification system at the level of “Excellent”.

“To date, Panattoni has delivered over one milion sqm in and around Poznań. Our numerous investments in the region have made us a perfect match for companies wanting to develop their business on modern space in good location. The example of DB Schenker in Komorniki shows that working with Panattoni does not only give immediate benefits to our clients but also paves the way for more projects with the developer, who understands their needs,” says Katarzyna Kujawiak, Development Director from Panattoni.

The park is located only 11 km from the centre of Poznań, and close to the Komorniki junction, which links the national road number 5 and the A2 highway. The highway crosses the major cities in Central and Eastern Europe, including Warsaw, Łódź, Poznań and Berlin. Express road S5, which is in the final stage of construction, will run close to the park. The road is part of the ring road of Poznań, connecting it also with Wrocław on the South and Bydgoszcz in the North. The location of the complex allows efficient transport both in and outside the country.

The project for DB Schenker is to be BREEAM certified at the level of “Excellent”.
