Prologis Delivers Build-to-Suit Facility to SDA in Stezzano
Milan, (April 29, 2019)
Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced the delivery of a Class-A build-to- suit facility to SDA, the express delivery service of Poste Italiane. The building is located in Stezzano (BG), Northern Italy.
The 5,000 square-meter building will provide 500 square meters of office space and room for a new generation sorting machine to manage parcels for delivery to Bergamo and the surrounding area. The facility has six loading bays, 26 doors and is fitted with sustainable LED lighting. Solar panels provide electricity and hot water. Rainwater is also recycled through a large tank, integrated into the landscape using natural boulders. The facility is equipped with EEGLE technology, a digital interface created by Prologis that enables customers to manage their building remotely, reduce costs and minimize environmental impact.
Under the planning agreement, Prologis is able to facilitate an easier commute for the building’s employees through the development of a new cycle lane from the town center to the industrial estate and a connecting road between the facility and the highway.
“In 2018, we developed two build-to-suit facilities for SDA at Interporto Bologna. We are very pleased to now deliver a third Class-A facility in Stezzano”, said Sandro Innocenti, senior vice president, country manager, Prologis Italy. “This development further strengthens our customer relationship with SDA in Italy”.
Prologis owns and manages approximately 1 million square meters of distribution space in Italy as of March 31, 2019.
