Transport and logistics company NTEX is creating space for more clients, more efficient cargo handling and warehousing with newly built premises strategically located near Scandinavia's largest container port. “With these premises we can offer even better handling of cargo flows to and from Gothenburg, both domestically and internationally,” says NTEX CEO Thomas Ström.
NTEX has signed an agreement with the real estate company Platzer for a new logistics building in Torslanda, Gothenburg. The terminal and warehouse building will be almost 14,000 sqm and NTEX will offer warehouse management as well as cross-docking, i.e. transshipment of incoming transports directly onto outgoing transports for fast handling.
“These are services that we already offer, but in different locations in Gothenburg. NTEX Domestic has one terminal and NTEX AB another. This way, we are consolidating the flows and also creating space for even more clients and their goods,” says NTEX founder and CEO Thomas Ström.
NTEX is one of Sweden's largrest privately owned freight forwarding companies, headquartered a stone's throw from the Port of Gothenburg, Scandinavia's largest container port. NTEX handles large amounts of cargo through the port, and in addition to the size of the premises, the surrounding area has been an important part of the search for the perfect location for the new terminal and warehouse facilities.
“We have been looking for premises for a long time and are very pleased with the cooperation with Platzer. It's hard to find this type of space in Gothenburg, but here we get a new, modern and strategically located facility with space for both large volumes of goods and trailer traffic,” says Thomas Ström.
Construction will start this autumn and the building is scheduled to be occupied in April 2023. The environmental aspect is important for both parties and the building will be certified Miljöbyggnad Silver (Environmental Building). The lease is for 10 years and has a green appendix, which means that both parties are working together to reduce their environmental impact.
