SEGRO Logistics Center Schiphol is a modern and future-proof warehouse of 17,000 m2 at Schiphol Tradepark - Skyzone A4. The logistics building was completed in April 2020 and was immediately partly put into use by GEFCO Forwarding Netherlands. With the lease of Unit B to RIF Europe BV, the complex is now fully leased on a long-term basis.
SEGRO Logistics Center Schiphol is a modern and sustainable building with BREEAM Excellent certification. It was one of the first completed buildings at Schiphol Trade Park, which was developed by SADC with very high sustainability ambitions. Among other things, the building uses heat and cold storage, energy consumption is low and a sustainable lighting plan has been used with as much daylight and LED light as possible.
