The opening of this center responds to a growing demand from customers searching for products on Amazon.it. At the same time, it aims to provide better logistics services and support to small and medium-sized companies that sell on the platform.

A new objective: to reduce the environmental footprint

One of the highlights of this new center is that it integrates energy-saving systems to reduce its environmental footprint. In response to the commitment to achieve zero CO2 emissions by the year 2040, this center was designed with a focus on energy savings. In this way, it aims to obtain an "Excellent" rating in the BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certification.

The heating, air conditioning, and ventilation of the rooms are managed by an intelligent BMS (Building Management System). This provides a comfortable working environment for employees while reducing unnecessary energy consumption.

Also, the building is equipped with solar panels for power generation, as well as bicycle storage facilities to promote the use of bicycles. Employees can also use electric vehicle charging stations on the premises.

The expansion in Italy

Ardea's is no less than the third distribution center, as well as the eighth that Amazon has opened in Lazio.

According to the head of Amazon's new distribution center in Ardea, Filippo Fulloni, the company's investments in Italy have come to create more than 14,000 jobs, with Lazio ranking first in terms of jobs created with more than 3,000, to which it will now be necessary to add the jobs for Ardea.
