In a few years, a huge 250K sq m logistics complex will be built in Krasnodar in southern Russia.
The new facility, the largest in its kind in the Eastern Industrial Zone in Krasnodar, will offer 10K additional jobs to local residents.
At the moment, the project is at the first stage of construction; it calls for completing a 25K sq m facility, or one-tenth of the total, in 2021. Already at this stage, about 1K people will get jobs close to their homes.
Further plans for the new hub go beyond purely logistics business; they include adding light industry and food production workshops as part of the new complex.
Total investment in the project is about RUR 6.5 bln ($93 mio).
The groundbreaking ceremony for the planned logistics hub was a major event on the national as well as the regional scale and was attended by the region’s Governor Veniamin Kondratyev, Presidential Envoy to the Southern Federal District Vladimir Ustinov, and also Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov.
