Thirty-five years of dramatic growth have lifted Foshan into the top tier of Chinese and global cities. Foshan is the third-largest city in Guangdong province by GDP, and its residents enjoy the ninth-highest per capita income in China.
The area’s vital industries include petrochemicals, electronics and equipment manufacturing. But Foshan is perhaps best known as a center of appliance manufacturing, hosting operational facilities for such giants as Guangdong Macro (gas heaters and ovens) and Midea (household appliances). A robust network of warehouses and industrial properties enable efficient distribution and movement of goods throughout the region.
Foshan’s logistics and transportation network is tightly integrated with Guangzhou’s. A subway connects the two cities. The Guangzhou Port is the eighth-busiest cargo port in the world and the fifth busiest in China, and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, serving 55 million passengers in 2015, is China’s third-most active airport.
Prologis has available warehouses in Foshan and operates industrial properties throughout the Foshan region.
