FM Logistic has opened a 35,000 sq m warehouse near the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don to serve the region’s growing food, retail and manufacturing sectors. The new warehouse will hold up to 50,000 pallets of products. The facility’s services will include storage, handling and co-packing.
Located on an 81,000 sq m site, the new temperature-controlled warehouse was designed by FM Logistic’s sister company NG Concept. Construction took 15 months to complete. The total investment in the location, including construction and equipment purchases, is expected to reach around €35m by 2021, with about half already spent.
The site enjoys proximity to the new Platov International Airport, which started operation in 2017, and major transport routes including the M4 “Don” federal road.
According to FM Logistic, the new facility will bring about 200 jobs to the Aksai district of the Rostov region. In recent years, the Rostov region’s economy has grown faster than that of Russia, supported by the expansion of agriculture and industrial manufacturing. Industrial production in the region was up by 7% in 2017. The Rostov region benefits from a network of improved roads, built or renovated ahead of the 2018 World Cup, when Rostov was one of 11 host cities.
