Raben Commissions Additional Distribution Space at Prologis Park Nove Mesto

Prologis delivers 3,755 square metre build-to-suit facility

Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced it has started construction of a fully customised distribution facility comprising 3,755 square metres for Raben Logistics Slovakia, a third-party logistics provider, at Prologis Park Nove Mesto.

Scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2017, the facility will increase Raben’s total leased space within the park to 14,700 square metres and will be dedicated to operations serviced by trucks and vans.

“This expansion was a strategic decision based on our mission to build a competitive advantage to our customers and our satisfaction with not only the location, but also the quality of Prologis’ services, both at Prologis Park Nove Mesto and across the region,” said Věnceslav Dobrynský, Contract Logistics Manager Raben Logistics Slovakia. “We are continuously exploring new ways to optimize our operations, and this new, customised facility is fully in line with Raben’s strategy.”

“As the nature of logistics continues to evolve, flexibility is becoming increasingly important to third-party providers looking to meet growing demand,” said Martin Baláž, director of development and leasing, Prologis Czech Republic and Slovakia. “We are committed to tailoring our facilities to meet our customers’ exact requirements, and are pleased do so for our long-term customer, Raben.”

Prologis Park Nove Mesto currently comprises two fully let facilities totalling more than 36,000 square metres of state-of-the-art distribution space. Located 100 kilometres northeast of Bratislava with direct access to the D1 highway, the park is an ideal hub for domestic and international logistics services.

Prologis is the leading provider of distribution facilities in Slovakia, with more than 545,000 square metres of logistics and industrial space (as of September 30, 2016).
