Panattoni Park Lublin III to house an InPost sorting plant

Panattoni, market leader in industrial real estate in Europe, starts its fifth collaboration with InPost. After Toruń, Bydgoszcz, Szczecin and Opole, the time has now come for Lublin. This year, the company will open an 8,100-square-metre sorting plant at Panattoni Park Lublin III, currently under construction.

Panattoni’s emerging markets support the growth of InPost Paczkomat® and InPost Courier services. InPost – the leading provider of modern logistics in Poland – demonstrated its appreciation of Panattoni locations and facilities for the fifth time by leasing from the developer close to 30,000 sqm of modern warehouse space in total in up-and-coming markets of Toruń, Bydgoszcz, Szczecin and Opole. The company’s latest sorting plant with an area of 8100 sqm is being built at Panattoni Park Lublin III. The choice of the site was helped by the excellent location of the facilities and their easy accessibility for transport – the park lies directly next to the regional road no 822 and as little as 2 km from the intersection with the Lublin bypass (Lublin Zadębie junction) made up of the S12 and S17 expressways. Additionally, the road network makes for convenient connections with both the Lublin airport (10 km) and the railway station (5 km). The location in the vicinity of an international airport, railway terminal, and not far from the eastern border of the European Union creates the optimal conditions for domestic and international distribution alike.

“The increasingly dense network of Panattoni facilities away from major agglomerations provides an attractive proposal for courier companies which, in the era of rapid growth in e-commerce, want to get closer to their customers” – comments Dorota Jagodzińska-Sasson, Managing Director Panattoni, and adds: “Thanks to the progress made in recent years in the transportation infrastructure of Eastern Poland, we see a noticeable uptrend in the investment attractiveness of the region, including Lublin. I am referring, notably, to the new Lublin bypass, the construction of the S17 expressway, which will significantly shorten the journey to Warsaw (191 km), and the S19 between Lublin and Rzeszów. The latter forms part of the Via Carpathia – the pan-European transport corridor, connecting the north and south of Europe, from Lithuania – through Białystok, Lublin, Rzeszów – all the way to Greece. Upon completion, it will effectively connect the regions of Eastern Poland with the rest of the country, Europe and the world”.

“InPost currently has the most extensive infrastructure among all the logistics operators in Poland. Also the volumes of parcels handled by us are record-high – 2019 for us was another year of significant, double-digit growth. We are known for fast delivery times – we consistently maintain D+1 effectiveness with deliveries to our Paczkomat® parcel lockers. That is why we keep expanding our network and machine park. We are proud of the very high turnover ratio in our Paczkomat® parcel lockers – the majority of parcels are picked up within a few hours after delivery. In 2020, we will be launching new logistics hubs, investing in an eco-friendly vehicle fleet and expanding our network even further” – reveals Rafał Brzoska, InPost CEO.

Panattoni Park Lublin III is the developer’s third distribution and logistics centre in the Lublin area. The project, planned to total 35,000 sqm, will be offering modern production and warehouse space with flexible unit layout options, which will meet the requirements of customers from various industries. The Park will be comprised of 3 buildings in total, featuring respectively 19,600 sqm, 7,600 sqm and 7,500 sqm. The first tenants will be moving into the park in March – the developer has already delivered the first facility, featuring approx. 6,000 sqm.
