France’s city of Lyon has a population of 1.3 million, and the greater metropolitan area has a population of 2.2 million, making it the country’s second-largest city. The region is Europe’s fifth-largest economy in terms of total GDP.

Lyon is France’s second most important industrial and financial sector. After Paris, it is the most popular city for foreign investors. Among the major companies based in Lyon are Sanofi and Lafarge.

Lyon is France’s second-largest logistics hub, thanks to its high population density, robust consumerism and, most significantly, central location in Europe. Passengers can travel from Lyon to 115 destinations via Lyon-Saint Exupéry International Airport, which handled 8.5 million passengers in 2015. High-speed rail transports passengers to Marseilles and Paris in less than two hours. Warehouses and distribution centers are an important component of the region’s logistics infrastructure.

Trucks can reach markets with 180 million Europeans within a single day’s drive. The Edouard Herriot Port on the Rhone River is France’s largest inland port. At this intermodal center, goods can be sent by water to the Mediterranean and by rail and truck to any point within Europe.

Lyon’s logistics market ranks second in France in terms of total logistics stock.

Prologis operates industrial properties and warehouses in the Lyon region.
