NTEX sets up Malmo hub

[ October 20, 2021   //   ]

Scandinavian transport and logistics company NTEX is to move into a new property in Malmö southern Sweden.

It will offer daily services throughout Sweden to and from the new hub, as well as international transport primarily to and from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

The 11,000 square metre logistics terminal will offer warehouse and office space, as well as third-party logistics. The property, owned by Mileway, is close to main motorways and has 19 docking gates.

Its opening follows NTEX’s setting up of a new office in Malmö last spring with four employees.

NTEX founder and chief executive Thomas Ström said that activity in the region had exceeded expectations: “Therefore it’s time to expand with more and larger premises. It’s important to point out that we see this investment as a complement to our operations in Helsingborg, where we handle goods to and from the rest of Europe.”

The number of employees in Malmö has increased to nine and more are expected to be recruited in 2022, said site manager Stefan Lendenfelt. “We are in full swing with the recruitment of both traffic controllers and more warehouse workers. In total, we expect the new facility to bring in about 20 new employees in 2022,” added managing director at NTEX Domestic, Anette Yngvesson.

The company foresees great benefits from having both international and domestic operations under the same roof in the Malmö region, on the border with mainland Europe.

“More and more existing and potential customers are demanding warehouse space and third-party logistics in combination with fast and efficient transport from the Malmö region. Therefore, the new property is perfect for us,” said Thomas Ström. “We now have an even larger facility for efficient terminal operations in Skåne, which will be a perfect complement to our operations in Helsingborg. With these two operations, we are now equipped to handle both inbound and outbound cargo from all over Sweden and all European countries.”
