Milan’s metropolitan area with a population of about 8 million is Italy’s main economic center generating one-fifth of Italy’s GDP.

The city of Milan, capital of the Lombardy region, lies at the center of a series of major motor and railway corridors crossing the Po Valley and connecting Italy to the rest of Europe. As a result, transport, logistics and distribution are significant contributors to the overall economic activity of Lombardy’s capital city.

Home to Italy’s main stock exchange, Milan has a high concentration of companies in fashion, textiles, design, chemicals, manufacturing, banking, sports, media and services. The city is also the seat of several universities, including Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Bocconi University, University of Milan and Milan Polytechnic.

The Milan region is home to three international airports—Linate, Malpensa and Orio al Serio—which together accommodate 35 million passengers annually. Malpensa is Europe’s tenth-largest air cargo hub.

As one of Italy’s densest and wealthiest population centers, Milan is Italy’s prime warehousing location. Consumption, trade and emerging e-commerce drive demand for logistics services.

Prologis has industrial properties and warehouses in the Milan region.
