DLS Bålsta

Pioneering Logistics

To enable more flexible and efficient deliveries for Axfood’s purchasing and logistics company Dagab, we are developing the largest logistics facility in the Nordics. The 30 metres high bay facility, totalling 126,000 square metres, is becoming unique in its complexity including a fully automated order picking system in several temperature zones.

Effective and sustainable

The combination of the modern specifications and the size enables Dagab to consolidate six distribution centres into one, which will support quicker and more efficient deliveries for both retail and e-commerce.

Besides the automated logistics space with chilled, refrigerated and temperate zones, the facility will also include office spaces.

The property will be certified in accordance with BREEAM-SE, and further sustainability initiatives includes re-use of excess heat, optimisation of construction materials and preparations to install a large rooftop solar plant. 

The location is crucial for efficient logistics. This facility is strategically located in Bålsta, northwest of Stockholm. The proximity to the highway E18 and Stockholm makes this an optimal location, reaching 3,5 million people within one hour. In addition, railway sidings run all the way into the site, which will facilitate future transport infrastructure.
