Greater Copenhagen is among Europe's top 5 logistics regions

Catella has named the leading logistics regions in Europe, offering real estate investors the greatest potential in the coming years. Greater Copenhagen takes the fifth spot with high yields and an attractive risk profile.

Catella is a leading specialist in property investments, fund management and banking, with operations in 12 countries across Europe.

The new Market Tracker includes a European-based scoring model with 107 logistics regions compiled by Catella for the first time.

Catella expects Greater Copenhagen to offer real estate investors the greatest potential in the coming years, only surpassed by Greater London in the UK, Oslo og Akershus in Norway, Ale-de-France in France, Catalonia in Spain. There is however the UK’s decision to leave the EU, which is currently causing a lot of uncertainty.

Excellent infrastructure and geography

“Greater Copenhagen offers the perfect location both in terms of catchment area, underpriced industrial and logistic property, socio-economics factors and infrastructure. The region has excellent air, sea, road, tunnel, rail connections to all Nordic, North European and Baltic countries”, says Paul Dhami, Business Development Manager Supply Chain Management/Logistics, Copenhagen Capacity.
