French logistics company FM Logistic has opened a 35,000m2 (376,000ft2) 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 and the total investment in the location, including construction and equipment purchases, is expected to reach 2.5 billion rubles (US$39m) by 2021, with about 1.2 billion rubles (US$18m) already spent.

The new warehouse will hold up to 50,000 pallets of products and the facility will offer storage, handling and co-packing services, bringing 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 800,000m2 (8,600,000ft2) of warehousing space in Russia and employs 8,000 people in the country.
