FM Logistic expands in South Russia

French logistics company FM Logistic has opened a 35,000 sqm warehouse near the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don to serve the region’s growing food, retail and manufacturing sectors.

Located on a 20 acre-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 2.5 billion rubles (about €35 million) by 2021, with about 1.2 billion rubles already spent.

The new warehouse will hold up to 50,000 pallets of products. The facility’s services will include storage, handling and co-packing.

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.

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.

The new FM Logistic facility will bring about 200 jobs to the Aksai district of the Rostov region.

FM Logistic has been active in Russia for close to 25 years. It operates more than 800,000 square meters of warehousing space in Russia and employs 8,000 people in the country.
