Prologis delivered a 16,295 square meter build-to-suit logistics facility at Interporto Bologna to Logista Italia, a leading distributor of tobacco-related products, sweets, stationery and small electronics that serves over 55,000 shops across Italy. The build-to-suit comprises almost 15,000 square meters of logistics space with over 1,000 additional square meters earmarked for offices and storage.

The new facility is the first in Italy to feature Prologis’ EEGLE technology, a digital tool that helps customers optimize building operations, reduce energy costs and minimize environmental impacts. It is the first tool of its kind in the industrial real estate sector and enables remote management of logistics buildings. The interface connects to the building via sensors that allow users to monitor energy consumption, manage maintenance deadlines and detect operational malfunctions.

“The delivery of this first build-to-suit unit to Logista shows Prologis’ growing ability to quickly realize new generation logistics real estate facilities, using more and more advanced technologies,” said Sandro Innocenti, senior vice president, country manager, Prologis Italy.
