Global Reach Logistics (GRL), Third-party logistics (3PL) provider, has leased a 11,680 sqm warehouse space in the distribution centre Prologis Park Poznań. The business venture is a transaction in cooperation of AXI IMMO and the Czech consulting company 108 AGENCY, which run joint projects within IRELS, an organisation of International specialists in the logistics real estate sector. The involvement of both entities has enabled them to represent the client's interests in both the Polish and Czech warehouse markets.
GRL is an ecommerce 3PL partner providing comprehensive, integrated supply chain and fulfilment solutions to online retailers throughout the UK, US and Europe. The company's vision is based on sourcing raw materials, manufacturing products, and distributing finished goods to enable customers to meet their goals.
“We look forward to expanding our logistics solution into Europe and operationally expanding our business. The opening of the new Poland site was a logical approach to meet current customer demand, offering a strategic location with access to major transport links, connecting Eastern Europe with the West. We look forward to building on the growth of the business and creating an optimised solution for eCommerce retailers” comments Henry Qi, Managing Director at Global Reach Logistics
“Due to the current climate, customers were looking for a solution post-Brexit. This facility will allow retailers to meet their customers around the globe,” says Harry Johnson, Sales and Marketing Director at GRL. “It is a vital time for the business to grow, and we are thrilled to welcome employees to our team with the expansion of this facility.”
Thanks to the AXI IMMO and 108 AGENCY presence in the IRELS network, the lease transaction was successful. The organisation aims to develop cooperation and implement international logistics projects for clients of affiliated companies. Both AXI IMMO and 108 AGENCY have been members of the IRELS network since the network was established in 2017.
“The entry of Global Reach Logistics to Poland is successful cooperation within the international organisation IRELS and our local cooperation with the Czech company 108 AGENCY. The client was looking for a large, logistically well-connected space, preferably available immediately or in warehouses under construction but with a short delivery time. As a result of the analysis and presentation of several options for development on the Polish market, Global Reach Logistics decided to accept Prologis Park Poznań and occupy 100% of one of the available buildings,” said Piotr Roszkowski, Associate Director, Industrial & Logistics, AXI IMMO.
Prologis Park Poznań is a modern logistics centre of four warehouse and office buildings with over 43,000 sqm A-class space. The distribution park is well-connected with the A2 motorway and the interchange in Głuchów (approx. 16 km), with the nearby express route S11 (Poznań - Katowice), which is the eastern bypass of Poznań, and with the national road 92, the so-called old connection between Poznań with Warsaw. The well-developed transport infrastructure and large truck courts create favourable conditions for the development of companies from the logistics sector.
