As a leader in the HoReCa market, we know that storing food products requires strict conditions in terms of hygiene, safety, and quality. We work with experienced partners that can guarantee the installation of the freezer and cold storage facilities based on high technical standards. We carefully plan the logistics so that the fleet can complete the route to each customer without any issues. We have successfully secured all these factors at Fortress Logistic Park Bydgoszcz, which is why this investment is being made into the newest Bidfood Farutex distribution center in Poland,” explaines Sławomir Żegleń, Bidfood Farutex.

Center in a modern logistics park in Bydgoszcz

Fortress Logistic Park Bydgoszcz offers 48,300 sqm of warehouse space, with the potential to expand to 91,000 sqm. This logistics park is well-located within the regional industrial zone in the vicinity of the urban agglomeration – about 4 km from the entrance to the S5 expressway and about 7 km from the access to the S10 and the airport. The nearby main roads allow fast transportation of goods and the proximity to the German border causes great interest in leasing space by Polish and foreign companies.

“We are pleased to welcome Bidfood Farutex to the Fortress Logistic Park Bydgoszcz. The concepts used in the development of this premium-grade logistics park allow flexibility in accommodating a wide range of tenant needs, both technical and operational. Our ability to partner with our clients by understanding their challenges allowed us to tailor a state-of-the-art logistics offering that meets BidFood’s business and service ambitions,” comments Bartosz Klimek, Asset and Leasing Director, Fortress REIT Limited.

 Bidfood Farutex will move into 2,052 sqm of warehouse space and occupy 107 sqm of office space.

Fulfilled high requirements for food products

One of the key goals of this transaction was to adapt the warehouse space to HACCP standards, guaranteeing the safe storage of food products. From the pool of offers presented to the client, it quickly became apparent that Fortress Logistic Park Bydgoszcz fit the client’s distribution center location strategy,” comments Jakub Jastrzębski, Consultant, Industrial & Logistics, AXI IMMO.

The client emphasized from the first meeting that he was interested in warehouse space located in the eastern part of Bydgoszcz, which would help him build an effective distribution network in central Poland,” adds Katarzyna Głodowska, Consultant, Industrial & Logistics, AXI IMMO.
