Main logistic-warehouse centres:
The City is proud of well-developed production sector which plays an important role in the local export. The investment assets have been acknowledged by such companies as Unilever, Tyco Electronics, Nokia Corporation, Neupack or SPX Flow Technology which are only selected examples of a broad array of production enterprises which run their business in Bydgoszcz. The City has been recognized by foreign investors, as well as by Polish entrepreneurs. It is in Bydgoszcz, where manufacturing sites of the Polish leader in rolling stock production – PESA Bydgoszcz S.A.– are located.
Bydgoszcz investment attractiveness is proven by the optimal conditions for warehouse facilities. This is demonstrated by a large and still growing group of distribution centres, such as: Lidl, Kaufland, Coca-Cola, Oponeo.
The development of the production sector, generating the demand for warehouse-logistics services, is tightly tied to the availability of staff. In 2016 Kuyavian-Pomeranian universities were educating nearly 1555 students and relised more than 480 graduates at logistic and transportation specializations (incluiding more than 1380 students and more than 409 graduates in Bydgoszcz alone).
Production and warehouse-logistics sectors are crucial for the City in relation to the development of the agglomeration. The potential has been already noticed, i.a. by developers who consider Bydgoszcz to become the location for their investments in modern warehouse spaces. Currently, there are 344 thousand of square metres of warehouse areas available and over 190 thousand is under construction and planning. They will be modern warehouse parks with a high standard.
