Logistics specialist launches £500m European sustainable FleetHubs property fund

London based logistics solutions business Infinium Logistics has announced the launch of its first property investment fund, securing commitments from major international pension funds and private equity investors.

Infinium Logistics was established in 2019 to lead the agenda in decarbonising, electrifying, and optimising the logistics chain. Changing the face of last and middle mile delivery to respond to the global challenges of the rising e-commerce sector, it seeks to help logistics operators address climate change and “mitigate the geopolitical energy crisis”.

Bringing together solutions that straddle the real estate, technology, logistics and sustainability sectors, it already has a presence in the UK, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Poland, and North America.

In 2020, the global transport industry was responsible for around a fifth of all CO2 emissions. Countries and businesses have agreed to reach 100 per cent zero emissions in transport by 2040, and Infinium is supporting major logistics companies who are looking to meet and improve upon that pledge.

Currently the largest single shift impacting the entire fleet and mobility industry is the move from internal combustion engines to zero emission electric vehicles.

The newly created fund platform, GreenPoint Infinium Holdings LP, will be financed with £200m in initial equity commitments, providing a total investment capacity of around £500m with gearing. It expects to deploy this capital into the market over the next two years, with a ten-year fund life.

It will invest in FleetHubs, a new sustainability-focused asset class which combines commercial real estate and low carbon energy infrastructure to drive efficiencies, create a “better working environment” for last mile delivery service providers and combat climate change.

James Lee, executive chairman of Infinium Logistics, comments: “Nowhere is the intersection of technology, real estate and sustainability more pronounced than in final mile logistics and the transition of delivery vans and trucks to new, low carbon energy sources.

“GreenPoint Partners is a business that understands and shares this unique cross section of expertise and is the perfect partner to support the rapid growth of our platform.”
