In close collaboration with DHL, Skanska constructed the freight company’s new terminal at Hisings Backa on the outskirts of Gothenburg. This modern logistical facility only has winners; employees, the environment, customers, the company and the City of Gothenburg all benefit from the terminal.
DHL’s former premises in central Gothenburg were dilapidated and inefficient, and had major shortcomings in terms of the work environment for employees, which would prove very expensive to fix. Furthermore, the operations would ultimately have to be relocated for environmental reasons and because the City of Gothenburg needed the land to develop its downtown area.
Benefits for customers primarily include more efficient goods and package handling, enabling items to reach their destination quickly, in one piece and in a clean condition.
Skanska was awarded the assignment because we owned an attractive site suitable for DHL’s needs and because we offered a partnership model that matched DHL’s criteria stipulating transparency and participation in the implementation process.
The project leveraged DHL’s and Skanska’s collective know-how. A functional and cost-efficient facility was created for both the tenant DHL and the property owner Skanska.
DHL and Skanska created an environmental alliance aimed at jointly developing efficient green solutions. The terminal’s geographical location contributed to an improved environment by relieving the volume of traffic through central Gothenburg. We constructed an energy-efficient facility with the aim of leaving the smallest possible environmental footprint. The results of this work included dynamic lighting control and a bespoke air-conditioning system.
Aside from improving the air quality in central Gothenburg, the relocation of DHL’s facility freed up valuable land, ultimately enabling the emergence of a new city district.

The environment and the development of Gothenburg’s city center are the real winners of this project. The City of Gothenburg has had a long-standing wish to move the cargo terminals and freight companies from the Gullbergsvass area. One reason for this is that the air and traffic situation will improve significantly. Another reason is that this central area – about the size of the area within the city’s old moat (Vallgraven) – could instead be transformed into an attractive city district in which people could work and live.
The relocation of DHL in early 2009 was highly significant for the development of the City of Gothenburg. Many viewed it as the starting shot for the development of the Gullbergsvass district. The area, equivalent to 30 soccer pitches, is directly adjacent to Gothenburg Central Station. Today, it is dominated by logistics and cargo companies.
“The City of Gothenburg wants to create a living city district here; a diverse area where people can live, work and shop centrally,” says Lars Ivarsson, Director of the City of Gothenburg’s building office. “Fundamental to this work is that we first find solutions for the freight companies that are currently located in the area. The DHL move is the first step.”
Another big winner in the project is DHL’s employees. The old premises were cold, drafty and badly adapted to the operations. We worked in a target-oriented manner on the environment in the new facility, with improved satisfaction and wellbeing as a result.

Skanska has constructed DHL’s new terminal at Hisings Backa on the outskirts of Gothenburg. The new, more suitable, logistics facility replaces the old and inefficient premises in central Gothenburg, which also had major shortcoming in term of the work environment for employees.
The close collaboration resulted in premises optimized for DHL’s operations.
A few years ago, Skanska purchased a site in the Hisings Backa industrial zone because of its ideal location for logistics purposes. When the problems with DHL’s old premises became too severe, Skanska initiated a discussion.
Renovating the existing premises was not considered an alternative because of the expense involved. Furthermore, DHL would eventually have to relocate for environmental reasons and because the land was needed for the development of Gothenburg city center.
We were awarded the assignment because we owned an attractive site suitable for DHL’s needs and because we identified a collaboration form embracing transparency and participation. Skanska was the contractor and property owner, DHL was the client and tenant.
The project was distinguished by cooperation and openness; DHL’s knowledge of the needs of its operations provided the cornerstone for the design of the facility and Skanska contributed its know-how of project management and construction. Reference studies and knowledge exchange were a crucial part of the implementation.
The result is a functional and cost-efficient facility for both the tenant and property owner.
“It’s the difference between night and day,” says Jörgen Samsjö, Branch Manager at DHL Gothenburg. “The new terminal has provided such a lift – especially for us employees. Our old premises were cold, drafty and badly adapted to the task. We are now expecting a reduction in the number of staff calling in sick during the cold period of the year.”
The operative business places high demand on the facility. To ensure a functional and efficient terminal, loading bays, floors and layout were prioritized areas.
The terminal minimizes distances for loading; distribution vehicles are loaded directly using sorting lanes that extend all the way into the cargo space. Loading in the new terminal is carried out under a roof so all goods reach their destination in a clean and dry condition.
A better adapted terminal streamlines and speeds up the handling of parcels and packages.
The project was initiated in October 2007 and DHL moved premises in January 2009.
