Amsterdam Logistic Cityhub (ALC) is joining forces with Bouwbedrijf Vrolijk, who will be responsible for the realisation of the Netherlands’ first XXL multi-storey logistics city hub. The location offers 220,000 m² of total logistics solutions and is designed to shorten the last mile to and from the city. Strategically located in the Port of Amsterdam, ALC offers users direct access to the A10 ring road (3 min) and the city of Amsterdam via the Noordzeekanaal (7 min).
There will be approximately 1.5 years between the start of construction and final delivery. ALC expects to be fully operational in the last quarter of 2022. The proven expertise of Vrolijk in logistics real estate projects was the deciding factor. The construction company’s most recent deliveries include distribution centres, factory halls, business units and cold stores. Wim Beelen, entrepreneur and creator of Amsterdam Logistic Cityhub: “We are very proud that we will soon be giving the go for the realisation of this unique project. The construction requires an experienced partner, which we have found in Vrolijk.”
Multimodal and fully circular
With 220,000 m² of sustainable total solutions, users have complete freedom to choose the space they need. ALC is fully circular and has a very large warehouse area, mezzanine, high-quality office space, ADR and a two-storey distribution hall with 10.5 m stacking height. It also provides space for approximately 1,700 covered parking spaces, 200 loading docks and a 180 m private quay. For maximum sustainability, solar panels and wind turbines will be installed.
Shortening the last mile
Urban last mile logistics space is a growing necessity around the world’s major cities. This has already led to the development of XXL logistical city hubs in Asian countries and the US. In Europe, similar projects can be found in Paris (Paris Air²) and Hamburg (Four Parx). ALC is the sustainable solution for the increasing congestion and lack of space in and around Amsterdam, whereby the project meets the city council’s environmental ambitions. The location is of particular interest to the e-commerce sector and parcel services, which need to offer ever faster and more accurate delivery options to meet high consumer demands. It is also a solution for parties in the construction and offline retail sectors, who want to transport their stock or materials sustainably and quickly to and from the city.
