Italian postal service Poste Italiane has opened a logistics hub in Landriano, which it says is the largest in Europe for e-commerce and express courier services. The facility covers a total area of 80,000m, and its 600 employees can process up to 300,000 parcels per day.

The hub is equipped with an advanced automatic sorting system, augmented by 17 robots. Furthermore, 2,500 photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof, which generate electricity capable of covering 80% of the plant’s consumption, reducing annual CO emissions by 210 tons. Poste Italiane says it has invested a total of €60m (US$72m) in the construction of the hub.
