Dispeo, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) company focussed on e-commerce has signed a new lease with Logicor for 30,000 sqm of warehouse space in Houplines, 15km to the northwest of Lille.

Pascal Bonnaud, Managing Director of Dispeo, said:

This new warehouse location next to Lille and connected to the A25 highway adds to our existing 150,000 sqm logistics portfolio across five assets. Our logistics warehouses use automation to handle 80 million e-commerce items per year, the equivalent of 150,000 parcels per day. With the addition of 30,000 sqm in the Logicor building we will be able to accommodate the long-term growth of one of our clients.

Eric Hantz, Managing Director & President of Logicor, France says:

We are very pleased to support the growth of Dispeo’s e-commerce logistics network by providing this distribution location in a strategic area. Houplines is a very good location for reducing transportation costs and shortening delivery times across Northern France.

The high-quality modern logistics Houplines warehouse is located in the immediate vicinity of the A1 autoroute, providing excellent access to the European supply chain corridor.

Tostain & Laffineur advised Logicor and Dispeo on the transaction.

Logicor’s France warehouse portfolio totals 2.5 million sqm.
