SEGRO has fully leased its SEGRO Logistics Centre Venray, its prime 42,800 m² (460,870 sq ft) distribution centre in the Limburg region of the Netherlands, to logistics service provider, Ceva Logistics Netherlands.
“We are pleased to welcome CEVA Logistics Netherlands to this new development. The brand new centre was completed at the end of February, so CEVA can immediately start delivering flexibility and capacity to existing operations”, says Eelco Ouwerkerk, head of SEGRO Netherlands
“We are delighted with SEGRO’s new, ultra-modern location in Venray. This enables us to implement the growth of CEVA Logistics in Benelux for both new and existing customers in diverse sectors. The building fits perfectly within the sustainability strategy of CEVA Logistics and is centrally located in our campus structure in Venray. We are here for the long term and looking forward to further development of our cooperation with SEGRO”, said Jan de Breet, head of Real Estate, Facility and Procurement CEVA Logistics Benelux & Switzerland.
The high value distribution centre (HVDC), located on De Blakt industrial estate on Edisonstraat in Venray, has a total area of 42,800 m² and will be certified BREEAM Outstanding. Sustainability and innovation are central to the design and landscaping, making a major contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions, to limiting the energy costs of the tenant and to the wellbeing of the end user. This is reflected in sustainably generated energy, batteries for energy storage, sustainable and fire-retardant wooden facade cladding, charging points for electric cars and bicycles, LED lighting, and underfloor heating /cooling in the warehouse and in the offices. In addition, more than 2,500 m² of vegetation will be planted in the outdoor area, with green-accentuated footpaths.
This first-class location in Venray is the fourth CEVA Logistics site on the De Blakt industrial estate, increasing the opportunities for expansion and flexibility of existing and new operations.
