France holds a pivotal role in European logistics, with Ile-de-France surrounding Paris representing the continent’s largest market.
The corridor running from Lille in the North, through the Paris region and Lyons to Marseille on the South coast is the focus for the country’s logistics activity.
Logicor is the second largest owner of warehouses in the country. Almost half of our French properties are held around Paris, including our flagship Garonor site which is France’s premium urban logistics location 12 km to the north of the city. The French team is based in Paris.
With 2,445,000 sqm of quality assets in 148 buildings across 105 sites covering the entire country, Logicor is the second largest operator of logistics real estate in France. Our significant logistics platform and expert management team enables us to establish strong working relationships and support Third Party Logistics Providers (3PLs) and other customers with their real estate strategy and decisions on a national level.
Logicor’s France’s portfolio comprises a large variety of assets ranging from light industrial and specialised cross-dock facilities, to class A logistics warehouses and parks.
45% of our assets are located in the Ile de France region, France’s first logistics real estate market. Outside of the Ile de France region, our investments are concentrated on buildings close to main highway corridors, major employment and consumer areas, along with areas supporting multimodal transport.
Besides our existing substantial logistics portfolio we can also develop built-to-suit customer premises on land we already own across France.
Our clients include major national and international logistics players. In addition, we work closely with multiple mass-market retailers, pharmaceutical, sports equipment and automotive companies, as well as manufacturers.
We look to build strong relationships with our tenants based on mutual trust and take pride in providing clear advice on real estate and location strategy. Our European network is a major strength for our clients, as we can assist them with potential opportunities outside of France.
Our French team is located in Paris.
