The building includes close to 1,000 square meters of space for cross-docking operations. Adjacent to the 5,000 square meter open yard is an area dedicated to project logistics. The complex also includes seven warehouses with a total of around 18,000 square meters of storage area and 8,500 pallet positions, where logistics services are provided for industrial customers in the fields of healthcare, semiconductors and telecommunications.
