GEODIS extends its Contract Logistics reach to Sweden 21 October 2021

Responding to customers calling for an extension to services

In pursuing its goal of organic growth GEODIS is establishing a contract logistics footprint in Sweden for the first time with the opening of 16,000 m2 facility at Arendal, near Gothenburg. GEODIS will open its new warehouse, strategically located in the proximity of Gothenburg port, on 01 December 2021 in order to now establish contract logistics operations in Sweden. Arendal is located only 15 km from the city of Gothenburg. It benefits from excellent connections to the regional motorway network with access to Stockholm and Malmö, as well as Oslo in Norway, and the wider Nordic region.

The full range of warehousing and distribution services will be offered including, receiving goods to WMS, inventory storage, pick and packing, case palletisation, value added services, returns processing, quality control and distribution. A variety of industry sectors will be catered for at the new facility, but fast-growing retail and ecommerce verticals will be core businesses served.

The GEODIS Freight Forwarding business has been long-established in the country and customers have been calling for an extension to services. This new, strategically positioned facility provides a solid logistical base. It is an answer to the warehousing and logistics needs of current and future customers while also allowing them to benefit from a last mile distribution network.

In Sweden, the GEODIS group operates from eight locations (Helsingborg, Jönköping, Borås, Norrköping, Lund, Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö) and employs 350 employees.
