Poste Italiane formally opened a logistics hub in Bologna on Tuesday.
The €50 million complex is the largest e-commerce logistics hub in Italy. It is more than 75,000 square metres in size and has the capacity to handle 250,000 parcels per day.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by Italian President Sergio Mattarella, who addressed Poste Italiane’s top management, representatives of the local authorities, and some of the logistics centre’s 600 employees.
“The new hub is a strategic infrastructure … that will operate in synergy with Italy’s largest distribution network,” Poste Italiane’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Matteo Del Fante said in a statement.
“Taking advantage of the convergence between mobile telecommunications and digital payments, it will allow us to carry out the innovation path outlined by our ‘Deliver 202” business plan, giving a crucial contribution to the spreading of e-commerce and digitalisation in the country,” the CEO said.
