Storage and distribution facilities will be moved close to the Port of Gothenburg in 2026
In order to future-proof its delivery and logistics operations as it continues its growth journey, Kappahl Group will be opening a new distribution centre in the industrial area of Arendal on the outskirts of Gothenburg. The new state-of-the-art facility, located adjacent to the Port of Gothenburg, is expected to be operational in the second half of 2026.

“Our goal is to offer more of our strong brands via new markets and channels. To achieve this, our distribution centre must be able to handle the volumes demanded in an efficient and sustainable manner and also provide the required level of service. We are therefore investing in a new state-of-the-art distribution centre”, says Peter Andersson, CFO and Vice President Supply Chain at Kappahl.

The location of the new distribution centre was chosen for its proximity to Gothenburg’s container port, to which large volumes of Kappahl’s goods are shipped and which is also easy to reach by public transport, and because the size and flexibility meet the needs that Kappahl envisions for a logistics centre in the future.

“Although our current DC has certainly met our requirements in the past and served its purpose well, we have decided that Kappahl now needs a new distribution centre to enable us to expand our operations further and meet future challenges. The new facility will bring many enhancements, including an improved working environment, better ergonomics and greater flexibility”, says Eva Meding, Logistics Manager at Kappahl.

The building was completed in January this year and the work to adapt the new distribution centre to Kappahl’s needs is expected to be completed in 2026. Specification of all the work processes and determining the layout of the new facility will be the focus this year. New systems will be installed and tested in 2025 and operations will be gradually transferred in 2026. The new distribution centre is scheduled to be fully operational in the autumn of 2026. 

New address will be Arendalsvägen 4. Plans for the current premises after Kappahl has moved out have not yet been finalised.
