DENVER-ProLogis, a global provider of distribution services and facilities, has agreed to sell nine temperature-controlled distribution facilities and its German transport business, Frigoscandia, to Nordfrost GmbH. In addition, ProLogis recently completed the sale of a temperature-controlled facility in Liverpool, UK, which also was operated by Frigoscandia.

ProLogis says it generated more than $36 million in proceeds from the disposition of the assets and a net book loss of $1 million. While these transactions will be modestly accretive, ProLogis does not anticipate a material change in its earlier guidance for the expected contribution from its temperature-controlled business for 2001.

Frigoscandia and Nordfrost have agreed to negotiate a service and licensing agreement so Nordfrost can continue to serve Frigoscandia’s pan-European customers requiring service in Germany.

“This agreement with Nordfrost is consistent with the repositioning of our European temperature-controlled business toward the distribution and logistics part of the supply chain, which is characterized by multi-use facilities with multi-national customers,” says K. Dane Brooksher, chairman and CEO of ProLogis. ” Frigoscandia’s German assets were generally more focused on single or local customers not operating on a pan-European basis.”
