JLL advises on 26,520m² logistics center acquisition at Copenhagen Airport
International investment firm AEW on behalf of a mandate backed by a German pension fund has acquired Copenhagen Cargo Center, a specialist Airside Logistics asset at Copenhagen Kastrup Airport. The seller is the pan-European real estate investment and asset manager Palm Capital, which took over the logistics asset in 2018. JLL has acted as buy-side commercial due diligence advisor in collaboration with local Danish firm EDC Erhverv Poul Erik Bech in providing local and pan-European Airport / Airside logistics advisory to support AEW in completing the transaction.
The asset has highly sought-after airside access and is let to DHL, Postnord, Telenor and WFS (Worldwide Flight Services). In addition to the logistics space, the property accommodates office space, and there are also opportunities to create additional value through development, with permission to expand the warehouse capacity by 5,000m² on the southern part of the site.
