The attractiveness of the region in the eyes of potential investors is also growing thanks to grants and tax incentives offered through Special Economic Zones as well as development opportunities in local technology parks.
Thanks to A4 motorway (east-west direction, part of the international route E40 and the TEN- T), Wrocław – as the first Polish city – became part of the European network of expressways. What is more, the city is intersected by major national and international transit routes and a broad network of well-developed regional roads (A8 motorway, S8 express road in the direction of Lodz and Warsaw, S3 express way, national roads DK5 , DK8 , DK35 and DK94 ).
Located in the direct vicinity of Wroclaw, the warehouse parks provide excellent conditions for running operations, targeting main European cities and regions. The most popular facilities offering modern distribution, storage and light production space include parks by Prologis, Panattoni, Goodman, Hines and SEGRO.
Apart from large industrial parks, there are also facilities offering smaller warehouse units for rent available in Wroclaw. These are called Small Business Units (as they also provide adjoining attractive office space) and can be an interesting alternative for companies in search of smaller storage units in central locations or for those, who are just entering the Polish market. The pioneer of SBU in Wroclaw was Aviva. The concept has however developed and thanks to other industrial developers we are now seeing the offer of city warehouses constantly growing.
Wroclaw’s investment potential has already been acknowledged by a wide range of foreign investors from many different market sectors. Lower Silesia region has been chosen as the main hub for running distribution and production by inter alia companies from automotive industry (Toyota, Volvo, Faurecia and Bridgestone ) and electro-mechanical field (Toshiba, Bosch, Siemens, LG Electronics, Whirlpool). The list is topped up by an American e-commerce giant Amazon and his 2 logistics hubs of over 200 000 sq m.
